Two additional loads per year would be provided at a cost of $150 per load..

Chairman William Underwood announced that there would be a joint meeting on Monday, March 9 at 3 p.m. with the Eutaw City Council, the Greene County Housing Authority and the City of Eutaw Housing Authority.
During public comment, Joe Burton who lives on Cotton Drive in Forkland complained about the condition of his driveway. He said that when the fish pond located above his property was drained, the driveway was impassable.
County Engineer Arzo Abrams informed the commission that Forkland Mayor Eddie Woods had sent a check for 10 loads of stone to try and alleviate Mr. Burton’s problem.
E-911 Director Iris Sermon advised the commission that during the tornado season, on the first Wednesday of each month, a tornado siren would be set off. She asked that citizens, when they hear the siren, report it to E-911 so the 911 personnel would know the sirens were working. “We will not do this if the weather on that particular day is bad,” said Sermon.
Earlean Isaac told the commission that the pot holes in the middle of Lloyd Chapel Road in Forkland were getting worse and asked that some attention be given to this road.
There being no further business, the commission adjourned.
