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.
