Kozan said CDM Smith would have to change the scope of the work “completely.”

Broadband lease

The city approved a lease agreement with a company that will mean more broadband capabilities in the county.

The move is specifically aimed at the Port of Port St. Joe, said Jim Brook of the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance, LLC.

The port has a potential customer which has interest in broadband capabilities.

“Companies looking to relocate here are going to look at broadband capacity,” said Mayor Mel Magidson. “If we don’t have that, they will look elsewhere.”

The Broadband Alliance is not a retailer of broadband service – it provides a “larger pipe”, Brook said, for broadband capacity and provides the services free to schools and libraries who wish to connect.
