this has become a major problem, since the last rainfall in this county. the grass is probably two feet high in some places around the county and that is on state and county roads. it is a disgrace to this county. the county is only sloppily cutting one side of the ditches in some places. it depends on who lives close to the area being cut. so, i am ready to hear the replies to this problem. the DOT does not even respond to the phone calls about this problem also.

They only cut mine twice a year. I did notice the nice job they did all along 173. The culverts are even very nicely done.

They do not keep the ditches open, much less keep the grass cut.I do not have a clue what our taxes that we pay in holmes county is spent on except schools and what certain people need.

since i first posted this topic. a small improvement has been made on state roads and county roads. the state only cuts grass in this county six(6) times a year. well fellows, how about lowering those blades and cutting the grass shorter then? same goes for the county. both have done only a half ***** job recently.

I saw one of them cutting on 2 recently. He was being very careful and through. I don't believe it would be effective to lower blades considering the terrain.

lay off that was the county. i was talking about DOT. of course, the county has left some trees(for real) blocking traffic signs on north 185c recently. but, on the right hand sign of the road , if traveling south. im not making this up either.

i guess some people escape the "nuthouse", like people who like to PRETEND to be ME. crack down on these idiots TOPIX!! speaking of county and state road grass cutting. holmes county residents look outside your homes and tell me what it LOOKS like after the rains this week!!!!! PITIFUL, JUST PITIFUL. and to think DOT is suppose to be cutting grass on hwy. 81. ROFLMAO. after their coffee breaks and lunches in defuniak springs??? who knows when. the county grass cutting in holmes county IS NON-EXISTENT i do believe. unless, it is a park or in front of the homes of holmes county road department employees and their families. im serious. people just ride by and see if im not correct.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN THE ROADS, PAVED OR DIRT. LOOK SO BAD. The dirt roads around Smith Cross Roads, are terrible. Where does my big money that I pay every year for property tax go to? I shall remember this next time I vote. Never again will I vote for the person that needs to do something about the roads in our area. The ditches never get anything done to them,the side of the roads have tree limbs, that , before long will scrape the cars going by.
I have to call every year to try to get someone to do something about it. Does anyone not see this, or they don't check, or do not care? I know I am not the only person that sees this. Hope some more people that has the same problem will say so here.

thank you " been there" for agreeing. i did see the state doing some grass cutting this past week in between the rain. the county was trying their best but i think once again, some roads look better than others around this county. by the way, i swear i saw two mexicans about to cut grass on hwy. 79 and having mower probs. the state did a poor job once again. cant say the county did much better. they all should have done the grass cutting WAY BEFORE the rains began. dumb and dumber is what i call them now. if you leave 6 inches or more up from the ground afterwards, how soon will that grass grow, after the rains we recently have had here???? hmmm. took even more pics after this last week. some offices will be getting copies i promise you. YOU got It, i think ive got your number dude. it matches you IQ also.

hey, the last time DOT cut the grass on highway 81 north it was a complete joke. i think the guy was smoking or drinking something. he had to have been drunk or high on something. the grass looked awful, like a little off the top, as you say at the barber shop to the barber.

holmes county should be ashamed of themselves and be very careful driving down county roads now, since the grass is so HIGH. the same goes for highway 81N. watch out for snakes and deer, etc. who knows what will run out in front of you from the JUNGLES.

Well it is Sept. 9th. The weeds along the dirt roads around Smith Cross Road has been cut once this year. They look awful again. Cannot see when you start to go into another road. Would be nice to have them cut again.Probably won't happen.

hope that holmes county cuts a lot of roadside grass before the next big rainfall. could be a disaster waiting to happen on many roads.
