Parker House decision tough

Dear Editor,

Watching the Parker Family House sit and deteriorate after the fire has been torture to me and my family. So if it’s not going to be refurbished then I guess tearing it down is all the city can do. In hindsight, I wished it would have been sold at auction to someone whose main focus was to keep it as the only true historical site for Mexico Beach.

Today is a sad day for me and my family. With that being said, I do know as a commissioner myself, you sometimes have to make tough decisions and I feel confident that each and every board member put a lot of thought and prayer into their decision.
