Supervisors meet, take no action

NATCHEZ — The Adams County Board of Supervisors met in executive session Thursday to discuss industrial prospects, the acquisition of real property and a personnel matter.

Board Attorney Scott Slover said the meeting was closed because it involved discussions that would impact an industrial business that is locating in the county.

The discussion of the property acquisition could harm Adams County’s interests in the business development if the details were disclosed at this time, Slover said.

Those at the meeting in addition to the supervisors included Natchez Inc. Chair Sue Stedman and Natchez Inc. Executive Director Chandler Russ.

Engineer Doug Wimberly with Jordan, Kaiser and Sessions — the county’s engineering firm — and Allen Laird with Southwest Mississippi Planning and Development District were also in attendance.

The board did not take any action after exiting executive session.

In other news, the supervisors voted to approve a request from the Adams County Sheriff’s Office to enter into a contact with Tyco-SimplexGrinnell to repair the fire alarm system in the county jail.

The board also approved for county Information Technology Director Lance Bishop to attend a technical conference in Jackson.
