Sam Al- f0rd, of McComb, first vice- president of the Pike County Boarc o Supervisors, who pre- sided at the meeting, said the resolution containing the ec- ommendations "epresented a positive program for "supervisors in our area which will promote 0od and better government and icreased efficiency of elected officials in every county of the state." Approving the program were supervisors from Adams, Amite, Cl, aiborne, Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, Lawrence, Pike, Val- thall and Wilkinso Counties, comprising the Southwest Mis- sissippi Development District. The resolution also pledged the supervisors to cooperate ully with the ews media, other public officials, Chambers of Commerce and the Sou.thwe,st Mississippi Development Dis- trldt "in order to promote, im- prove and publicize the advan- tages and resources of the area I and encourage industrial, edu' I qatlon,al and civic 'development] toward .the .end that the general welfare will be promoted and outh,west Missi'si.ppl will be the outstanding section of the state of Mississippi." W. A. "Bill" WUtshire, Me- Comb attorney and president of the Southwest Msissippi De- velopment ,District, termed this 1 sectl'on of the resolution "a recognition of our common pr.oblems of presenting informa- tlon on our :activities to the genecal public." He said that vhen the public is properly in- formed of things being done in the tlndivtcual, "they would be enthusastic in their sppport of our operations" and he pledged the full support of the 70-member Board of Di- rectors of the Southwest Missis- sippi Development District in right: Chancery Clerk Alonzo Sturgeon; Wilkin- son County board .President Tom Ashley; Bill Parkman, executive director of the Southwest Mississippi Development District; and First Dis- trict supervisor Louis Gaulden. this effort. The portion of the resolution dealing with an ethics bill called for support of proposals estab- lishing methods ,of conducts for elected officials "provided such poposals ,apply to all elected officials including but not lim- ited to supervisors." The section calling for in- creased minimum salaries for supervisors asked that salaries of board members be fixed from a minimum of $10,000 to a max- imum of $18,000 per annflm, with such ,aid salaries based on assessed valuation of prop- erty in respective counties. The supervisors noted that .all or part of :the "unit .system" is :already employed by various counties under the present vol- unteer system and they call for a contin,uation of this "on a local basis in consideration of local coaditions, including avail- ,bility of ;fund:s and whether or not tax icreases will be re- quired." The :resolution ao called for improvement of supervisor's records and bookkeeping sys- tems so that expeditures for construction and maintenance ,of road's .and bridges may be readily identified, and 'it en- domed the concept of a cental- lized purchasing authority pro- vided this is left :to the discre- tion of individual counties, "since such a system may not be feasible ,and economically ad- vanag.eous in every county." The supervisors also requested the legistautre to give them au- thority to, construct and main- tain private driveways not to exceed more .than 250 feet from public roads. Alf.ord said this action was :taken "in hopes that the legislature will exercise its responsibilities in this matter af making it clear to the public that under present conditions supervisors cannot legally per- orm such work." :Proceedings Of The I Woodville Mayor And i Board Of Aldermen November 6, 1973 At the Regular Meeting of the Mayor ,and Board of Aldermen of the Town of Woodville, Mis- D'Aquilla, James O.
