Crews joins Bonifay City Council

The City of Bonifay has a full council again with the addition of its newest council member Rick Crews.

Crews was sworn in at the Oct. 10 regular meeting after the council heard from half a dozen residents interested in helping the town conduct its business.

Councilwoman Sierra Smith made the motion and Councilman Ryan Martin seconded the motion to select Crews.

“I see the time and devotion that he puts into basically anything he sets forth to do,” said Mayor Travis Cook. “I feel that is the absolute attitude and work ethic that we need to continue what we’re working on as a group.”

All council members voted in favor. Crews, who had previously served as a Holmes County Commissioner from 1988 to 1992 and again from 1996 to 2000, was sworn in by City Clerk Rickey Callahan.

In old business, the council tabled the appointment of a city charter review committee until a full committee is nominated by all council members.

The council passed a motion to pay an invoice for $11,000 to Extreme Land Restoration for the re-striping of Hubbard Street. The city will be reimbursed for the bill.

Waukesha Way reported that Steffi Andrews, Cinda Demuth and Stacey Harrison were recommended to serve on the nonprofit’s board. The council approved the recommendations.

In new business, the council approved a request by Chief Operator Matt Perry to purchase a transfer switch for a city water well.

Bonifay Fire Chief Larry Cook was granted permission by the council to sponsor five firefighters to receive EMT training at Florida Panhandle Technical College. The training will be paid for by grant funding.
Finally, the council passed a motion to advertise for a new city bookkeeper.

The next regular council meeting will be held Monday, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m.
