While some hopeful supervisors have already begun campaigning, Oktibbeha Countyâ€™s board president will propose today a strategic plan.
District 3 Supervisor Marvell Howard said Sunday he invited a professional consultant group to make a presentation to the other four board members on developing goals for the county - short term and long term.
When asked if he had goals of his own, Howard said, â€śGoal - thatâ€™s broad statement. We want to continue to make sure Oktibbeha County is one of the leading counties in the state of Mississippi in economic development and education.â€ť
In January of 2010, the The City of Starkville Board of Aldermen developed a strategic plan of their own after being in office half a year.
They adopted a year-end revision last week.
â€śDeveloping a strategic plan will take a while,â€ť Howard said, â€śbut hopefully weâ€™ll begin the process.â€ť
Possible aims include creating a website for the county and â€śdealing with finances,â€ť Howard added.
Additionally, the Board of Supervisors will discuss the feasibility of setting aside space for a drug court, an idea proposed by Oktibbeha County Circuit Court Judge Lee Howard, District 2 Supervisor Orlando Trainer said.
The board will meet at 10 a.m. in the second floor of the Oktibbeha County Courthouse on Main Street.
