City taps Preble Rish to manage lighthouse move

Bruce Ballister with the Apalachee Regional Planning Council told commissioners that the city had received a formal award of a $650,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to facilitate line replacement along Avenues B-D and part of E in the neighborhood of North Port St. Joe, which would complete the initial phase of replacing eight miles of pipe.

Ballister said that project would likely be bid in the spring and be completed in six months to dovetail into work on the second phase. The city will apply for another CDBG to fund the replacement of water lines in the remaining areas of North Port St. Joe.
