(Continued from Page 1, Darden said, "I came here a month and a half ago and talked to the beard about the high taxes we are being charged. I have found out that we are not being treat- ed equally with the seven people who sued the county a while back and won their lawsuit. If we can't be treat- ed like these people, we are ready to go to trial. This has been going on since back in 2007 or 2008, and our new five-year hunting leases term is coming up next year." Attorney Lewis replied, "Let me give you an option to taking this to trial. Your attorney and Wilkinson County Special Counsel Ron Senko can present the fact of the case in writing to a cir- cuit judge and let the judge rule on the facts of the case which are pretty clear that all plaintiffs against the county are in the same posi- tion. By taking this mute, it could lead to a quicker solu- tion ." Mr. Darden responded, "I will have my attorney con- tact you (Attorney Lewis)." Fifth District Supervisor Nettles reported that he had received $62,471 in U.S. Forestry funding to repair some three miles of the Tom Crum Read located in the Homochitto National Forest in his district. "The only problem is that the lone bid from Dickerson & Bowen came in at $83,471. What I propose is taking about $8,100 I have on hand from a read damage payment and also to sell a used bulldozer in order to make up this price differ- ence. I figure I will be within $3,000 of what I need. I will pay this difference out of my budget." Nettles made the motion to accept the Dickerson & Bowen bid and to be allowed to handle payment as ex- plained. Supervisor Jackson seconded the motion which passed by a 5-0 vote to pro- ceed with awarding the road repair contract. When asked about the status of the Lake Mary Spillway replacement proj- ect, Attorney Lewis report- ed, "As of Friday of last week all required signatures but one had been obtained. There is a landowner living in Texas who has not signed, but has agreed to do so. We should be good to go in a cou= ple of days on obtaining the required right of way and easement to get started on the project." Wilkinson County Assis- tant Engineer Philip Chaffin had photos of the spillway project site which showed Mississippi River water flowing up "The Narrows" and entering Lake Mary through the ruptured Sam Field Spillway water control structure. Work cannot be- gin on the project until the Mississippi River falls to such a level that the water recedes from the work site and the area lands dry out. Board Pres. Nettles an- nounced that he had ob- tained the services of Flow Control Service of Woodville Town Of Woodvllle Notice of Sale to replace a drain pipe com- ing from the basement of the Wilkinson County Court- house. "This drain pipe has been dogged for years and as a re- sult, a possible health prob- lem has developed in the courthouse basement," said Nettles. "Flow Control has replaced the pipe and bored under the brick sidewdlk to allow the water to drain away from the courthouse. This work was done at a cost of $1,900." Nettles continued, "I also have a quote from Wayne Ford to do work in the base- ment. He will tear up the current tile floor in the hall inside the south basement door and raise the level of the hall to prevent water from entering the building from under the door. This is an architectural flaw. Water rune under the door before it can get to the adjacent drain. This work will solve the problem. The quote for this work is $1,300Y Supervisor Bankston made a motion and Supervi- sor Hollins seconded the matter to approve the work at a total cost of $3,200. The vote was 5-0 to approve the action. As requested Chancery Clerk Thomas C. Tolliver, Jr., reported to the beard that Reed Herring of Herring Ap- praisal Service was still in- terested in selling the coun- ty computer equipment he owned and which was being used by county employees at a cost of $75,000 and to sell the new computer services, soiware and all licenses for $28,000 for a total offer of $103,ooo. No action was taken fol- lowing Mr. Tolliver's report. Attorney Lewis gave a re- port comparing the two bid offers for completing the county's re-districting using the 2010 census figures. The board originally con- tracted with D. L. Johnson Consulting, LLC, of Jackson to handle the work, but inac- tion on the project led to the supervisors voiding John- son's contract for non-per- formance. The two offers under con- sideration were from South- west Mississippi Planning and Development and from Holland and Rigby Political Redistricting Consulting of Madison. "Redistricting isn't just about drawing up a couple of maps, it includes a legal de- scription of all supervisor districts and those for the east and west justice court and constable districts. Holland & Rigby have done redistricting plans in the past for Adams, Amite, Claiborne and Walthall counties in this area of the state. rhe two are about the same in cost estimate at $20,000, but after closely ex- Sealed bids will be received by the Town of Woodville, Wilkinson County, Mississippi, in the Town Hall in Woodville up to 4:00 PM on Tues- day, June 5, 2012, for the sale of one 1974 Ford Tractor, diesel en- gine, standard transmission, as is.

At this point Supervisor Banksten made the motion to award the contract to Hol- land & Rigby. Following a second by Supervisor Hollins, the matter was passed by a 5-0 vote. A short discussion fol- lowed relative to road use permits for oil and gas explo- ration companies, but no ac- tion was taken. Sheriff Reginald L. Jack- son made a presentation to the board about forming a Criminal Interdiction Pro- gram which would be head- ed by Deputy Chris James of his department. Sheriff Jackson said the multi-agency program will target narcotics, drug cases, serve warrants, etc. "I will be asking area town law enforcement agen- cies and the surrounding county sheriffs' departments of Adams, Amite, Franklin and Jefferson counties, and West Feliciana Parish, La., to join the program. We will need to have a formal inter- local agreement signed by all agencies involved," said Sheriff Jackson. He reported, "AS every- one knows, drug use is on the rise across the country and in this county. My de- partment has been making a number of drug arrests on our own, but we believe that this program will help give us a better ability to fight drugs and crime." Attorney Lewis was asked to look over the pro- gram and to study an inter- local agreement. No action was taken on a request for the county to ad- vertise on a map of Woodville and Wilkinson County. The advertisement was being offered for $750. Two closed door sessions concluded the meeting. In the first session the beard voted 5-0 to follow the recommendations of the Public Employee Retire- ment System relative to a retired of retirement fimding paid by two county elected officials -- Chancery Clerk Tolliver and Wilkinson County Circuit Clerk Lynn Delaney. The vote on the matter was 5-0. The second session in- valved a request by Sheriff Jackson to be allowed to hire four more jailers to man the new Wilkinson County Jail on U.S. Hwy. 61 South adjacent to the Wilkinson County Sheriff's Department. Sheriff Jackson said he will be out of compliance if this additional staff is not hired. The board unanimously approved the sheriff's re- quest. Lewis Insurance Agency, Inc.
