Franklin County does not want to share. Commissioners Court members voted to fund a full time county agriculture agent at their Monday, April 28 meeting. The county has shared an ag and family/consumer science county agent with Delta County for about 10 years.
“We are already paying almost as much as a full time salary would be with the additional travel that we are responsible for from Delta County,” Pct. 4 Commissioner Sam Young stated. For more details about this decision, see the May 1 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
