County looks to inventory property

Pike County commissioners approved a Tax Anticipation Note to fund operational expenses and discussed inventory improvements to county-owned land at the June 28 meeting. It was noted the loan is not to exceed $800,000 and will be drawn on an as needed basis as it was last year. Commissioners also discussed the old Hollonville firehouse which is currently unused. ’During last year’s audit the only thing we got written up on was not having a proper inventory of all county property,’ said county manager Bill Sawyer. ‘If we aren’t using the fire station facility, we need to revert it back to the original owners per the contract agreement.’ Commissioners discussed property on Adams Street which is being rented with monthly rental payments going to the former owner to cover costs of improvements made to the house before the county purchased it. Sawyer suggested ending the rental agreement and giving the residents 90 days to vacate the property. County attorney Rob Morton said he had notified the contracted party that the county is taking possession of the house.
