If it isn't broke, don't fix it.
The first Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors meeting of 2012 saw no changes in board officer appointments, from Board President Marvell Howard retaining his seat to Nora Goliday reprising her role as justice court clerk.
District 2 Supervisor Orlando Trainer was reappointed Tuesday as vice president of the board, while Don Posey and Jack Brown were reappointed county administrator and board attorney, respectively.
Victor Collins will return as road manager, Clyde Pritchard will remain state-aid engineer and bridge engineer, and Jim Britt returns as E-911 director.
Kirk Rosenhan was re-appointed as county fire services coordinator.
"I think we combined to make a pretty good team for a good county government over the last four years," Howard said.
In other news, the board will have its mid-month recess meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 17. Meetings are typically at 10 a.m.
Howard said the board has fielded requests to hold meetings in the evening, though he hasn't noticed a difference in attendance when the board had evening meetings in the past.
Howard said the board will "play it by ear" when scheduling recess meetings for the remainder of the year.
