Cape residents urge BOCC to re-engage on lighthouse

Yeager also noted the BOCC’s position when the federal government deeded the lighthouse to the city: the county would support the city’s efforts as it could.

“I’d love to have the lighthouse at Salinas Park,” Yeager said. “But what are you asking this board to do?”

The outcome, approved 4-1 with Commissioner Joanna Bryan dissenting, was a letter to the city saying the county was willing to take over if the city desired to abandon the project while reaffirming support, where possible, for the city’s efforts.

Bryan said she would prefer county staff sit down with Port St. Joe staff and provide an update on the city’s position before writing a formal letter.
