Commission and Poarch agree


June 14, 2018

The Escambia County Commission approved two memorandums of understanding with the Poarch Band of Creek Indians concerning road work in the Poarch area.

One is for the county to provide in-kind services for the resurfacing of roads in the area while Poarch would pay for the actual paving.

The second allows Poarch to grade county-owned dirt roads in the area after giving the county notice.

County Clerk-Administrator Tony Sanks said the county's road department has a schedule of when dirt roads are graded and sometimes, especially due to bad weather, they don't get back around to start the process over. The agreement approved will allow Poarch to grade the roads if needed but will let the county's engineering office know beforehand.

In other business Monday, the commission:

- Approved a resolution to participate in the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday set for July 20 through July 22. During those dates, certain school supplies can be purchased without paying sales tax.

- Approved the annual grant applications for the Domestic Violence Unit and the Escambia County Alabama Transit System (ECATS).

- Announced they had received a request to abandon Bluff Street and Labaron Street in Pollard. The commission noted it will hold public hearings before any decision is made.
