Bryan questions BOCC agenda

“I agree,” Yeager said. “I think some of the things that come before the board could be workshopped.”

Yeager also agreed that commissioners should take a closer look at the drafting of agendas.

Bryan added that feedback from constituents during the election indicated a “disappointment” with the decision of the BOCC to move regular meetings from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m., during the work day.

She said history showed the board had long met during the evening and that commissioners should relook at the idea and determine whether the original goals of moving the meetings to the morning had really been met.

Cape San Blas Lighthouse

Gail Alsobrook presented a tentative design of a proposed Bay Park that would include the Cape San Blas Lighthouse along with two museums exploring the history of the area, an estuarine preserve similar to the one in Franklin County and other amenities.

Alsobrook said the lighthouse and the need to relocate it presented an opportunity for “collaboration” among stakeholders such as the county – which has proposed moving the threatened lighthouse to Salinas Park – and the city of Port St. Joe to create a center of commerce which would force people driving U.S. 98 to stop and spend time in Port St. Joe.
