Beacon Hill sign

Williams has notified the county he wished to have the sign at Beacon Hill which formerly advertised the Beacon Living facility be taken down and stored for sufficient time to allow him to find a suitable location.

The county will bring down the sign and store it at the Public Works yard. If Williams claims the sign, he must reimburse the county for the cost of razing it. If not, the county will sell the sign for scrap.

FWC vehicles

Also addressed was the recent letter sent to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission requesting the agency to remove seven boats and trailers parked on county property.

Butler said the issue was not recent, but had been raised in 2010, though at the time former Commissioner Bill Williams intervened and allowed the FWC to return the boats.

Butler said the issue was layered, with the costs of water use by the FWC, use of a county dumpster and the rutting of county land also in play.
