The Winston County Board of Supervisors approved revisions to the Teters building grant application in its regular first of the month meeting on April 2. The Supervisors approved a resolution to change the grant to list $165,000 as the total cost to repair the roof on the Teters building. If received the grant from the Mississippi Development Authority would cover $50,000 with Teters Floral paying $25,000 and the county paying $90,000. Supervisor Michael Peterson explained that the $90,000 would come from the lease payments Teters makes and would be part of the $110,000 in maintenance the county is required to do to the building from the lease payments made each year.
