The New Haven Board of Commissioners agreed to release payment in advance to Joe Boone Excavating, which was awarded a bid to remove a logjam in the Rolling Fork River.
Boone, a New Haven resident, approached the council Thursday to ask for the remainder of the grant money allotted for the job.
Minus a $375 attorney fee for writing the contract, commissioners were agreeable to the idea.
“I have no problem if we have our fees paid ahead of time,” Commissioner John Ray Ball said.
Commissioner Freddy Dewitt agreed.
