A workshop to nowhere

Published: Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 02:30 PM.

Things I learned during the joint city/county workshop held last week.

Joint has differing meanings

The goal of this workshop, months in the making and only recently of any interest to the Board of County Commissioners, was to examine ways where the county and city of Port St. Joe might work together to lower the cost of government.

That, at least, is what both City Manager Jim Anderson and County Administrator Don Butler said to begin the meeting.

But would that not mean it best for all commissioners to attend?

Apparently not.

Commissioner Bill Williams, who has spent most of the past year taking verbal jabs at the city from afar, could not be bothered apparently with making the 6 p.m. ET workshop.
