CLASSIFIED ADS WORK CALL 601-888-4293 BY NOON ON FRIDAY Premier Phy0000ca00 Supervisors Told They Have $50,OO0...(ContinuedfromPagel) On motion by Jackson and a second by Hollins, the board voted 4-0 to approVe the change in ad valorem tax status for the ledge. Mr. Lewis announced that the county's petition to the Natural Resource Conserva- tion Service (NRCS)for fund- ing assistance on a number of projects in the county has been sent from the local level to the state office and is now headed to the federal level for consideration. The petition is for fimding assis- tance for dredging and bank stabilization of Percy Creek and for work on the Lake Mary, Woodlawn, Millbrook, Ford's Creek, Lover's Lane, Lanehart and Dr. Anderson Roads. "We have contacted U.S. Representative Gregg Harper's office requesting his support and assistance in getting our petition for funding," said Lewis." "Cong. Harper's office will contact other federal senators and representatives requesting their support." Mr. Lewis announced that the county is in the process of returning 01d trucks and other equipment which was loaned to the county by the Mississippi Forestry Com- mission. "We have to return what is broken down or what we are no longer using," said Lewis. "We must do this in order for the county to be eligible for more surplus trucks, trail- ers, pumps, etc. They won't let us have anything else until we return what we are not using any more." Mr. Lewis said that there is a moisture problem at the Department of Human Ser- vices building on Hwy. 61 South. "We are cleaning out the drainage ditches to get the moisture away from the building," Lewis reported. "When we do our budget this fall we need to budget for some needed painting work inside the building." Supervisor Jackson made a motion for the county to purchase two uniforms (pants and shirts) for West District Constable Willie Thompson. The cost is es- timated to be under $200. The motion passed unani- mously. Members of the Wilkinson County High School Class of 2015 attended Monday's meeting for a two-fold rea- son. The first was to see the government agency at work to see how the county is run. The Irwin Russell Club will meet on Friday, April 10, at three-thirty at the home of Mrs. Nanette Cart- er. Mrs. Alex Kirkland will serve as program chairman for the afternoon. The April meeting of the Junior Irwin Russell Club will be held on Friday, the tenth, at South of the Bor- der Restaurant. Hostesses will include Mrs. David Wilkerson, Mrs. Clint Mc- Curley, Mrs. E. M. Kee, Jr., Mrs. James Chaffin, Jr., and Mrs. James Falkenheiner. Thera W The second was to request the county's support on an Earth Day Project planned by the group to clean the Pinckneyville Road from its intersection with Hwy. 24 to the west edge of the school complex. The class vice president said that there will be 20 class members and several other volunteers who will be divided into two groups. One Hill start clean- up at Hwy. 24 and the other will begin at the west end of the school complex. The two groups Hill work towards each other. The seniors requested that the county provide gar- bage bags, disposable glove s and safety vests. Sheriff Reginald L. Jack- son said that the Mississippi Department of Transporta- tion will probably supply these items to the class at no cost. Administrator Lewis said, "This board Hill supply any- thing that the MDOT won't give you." Wilkinson County Su- perintendent of Education Timothy T. Scott and the class sponsor both said, "We want to thank the board for their cooperation on this project." The county has been dis- cussing the need to move the First Centreville Vot- ing Precinct from its pres- ent location due to the poor condition of the building. First District Election Com- missioner Vicie Rogers has obtained permission to use a church next door as the new voting precinct location. "I have talked to the build- ing owner and the lease holder, and both are in agree- ment to leasing the building to the county for elections," said Rogers. Administrator iewis said he would draw up a lease offer for election use of the white concrete building for a term of 5 years with a 5 year extension. First District Supervisor Seal expressed his concern over moving the voting precinct so close to an elec- tion. "Since the proposed loca- tion is next door to the cur- rent voting precinct build- ing, can't we just set up big signs saying Wete Here!' instead of sending out new voter registration cards that will confuse, the voters." Cq  mLmss!pner R0. gers sd that about 700 voters will be affected by this change. Supervisor Seal asked Ad- ministrator Lewis to contact the Mississippi Secretary of State's Office to see what process must be taken with the change of voting loca- tions. On motion by Jackson and a second by Seal, the board voted unanimously to allow Administrator Lewis to pro- ceed with drawing up a lease to use the church building for voting. Lake Mary area resident Dorothy Foster appeared before the board to request that they county consider us- ing water pumps to remove water from the large holes in the Lake Mary Road. "The river is expected to be at 46 feet by this week- end. If you pump the water out of the deep holes the road will dry faster and road work can begin quicker," Fos- ter commented. "The first two holes aren't very big and are about 2-3 feet deep. The third hole is twice as big and at lease twice as deep as the first two." County employee Marlin Reid commented, "I think I know where I can get my hands on a portable 3-inch pump. Let me check on this." Lochleven resident Rhon- da Quirk commented, "I am worried about the 2011 flood money that has been desig- nated for use on the Jackson Point Read that the board is considering re-designating to the Lake Mary Read. If the county is approved for funding from the NRCS on the Lake Mary Road, you need to leave the Jackson Point Road money alone. We need to use this money on the Jackson Point Road and in Ft. Adams. Haynes Lane resident Rosa Mae Parker was pres - ent at the meeting to com- plain about four-wheelers damaging the road and driv- ing too fast and recklessly on the county gravel road. "The road runs through my property," said Ms. Park- er. "My house is right on the road. I am scared to try and cross the road because they drive so fast. They fly up and down the road two or three across. It is a dangerous situ- ation. I want to know ffI can put up gates on both ends of my property.
