Jones County Board of Health members held their quarterly meeting last week and discussed a possible increase in staff and issues with replacement wells.

Chairman Rallie ‘Rooster’ Cogburn led the meeting and began with the issue of help for environmental specialist Floyd Comer. It appears the problem is with food inspections at local weekend festivals, such as the Relay For Life and the Daylily Festival.

Comer said a plan was discussed to share a part-time person with Bibb County, but he was concerned about adding to the budget.

“I would welcome the help, but I think the budget comes first,” Comer said. The health department adopted its budget at its last meeting, which included a 5 percent cut from the county.

The specialist said his only problem is the inspections at festivals that take place on weekends. He said he could use specialized help then.
