Wewahitchka Clerk, Tax Collector offices

During the coming week, the new Wewahitchka offices for the Clerk of Courts and Tax Collector, to be located in the old Health Department Building on N. 3rd Street, will be equipped with a new phone system.

Until the system is up and running the Clerk’s office can be contacted at 227-5630 and the Tax Collector at 227-5628.


The federal lawsuit filed by a local political action committee against the BOCC and three individual commissioners roiled another meeting as commissioners considered how to pay the $10,000 legal bill.

The discussion led to an outburst from McLemore saying Bryan was a member of the PAC – she is not a listed member on the website nor has been – and adding that she jeopardized the county’s position in another lawsuit with recent comments to the contractor on the Americus Ditch project.

McLemore also criticized Bryan for approving a motion several meetings back – which passed 3-2 with McLemore and Commissioner Tan Smiley dissenting – that moved the county forward on research to explore the potential for a return to county-wide voting.
