Commissioners rethink approach on lighthouse relocation

Published: Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 09:33 AM.

The consensus among commissioners was for a tiered fee-schedule, with city resident allowed free use of the ramp; Gulf County residents being charged a nominal fee; and out-of-county users of the ramp being charged a slightly higher fee.

Commissioners are examining ways to raise funds for long-overdue improvements to the boat ramp and launch area.

The primary issues are trailer parking and traffic during the season at the ramp.

Commissioners said the workshop was to receive public input, they would be looking at possibly implementing a pilot project and the ideal time to implement that project might be during the upcoming winter months to iron out issues prior to the season.

“We want to see if this is a viable way to raise funds for improvements to the launch area,” Magidson said.

Cemetery plot fees

Commissioners, after second reading, adopted an ordinance which alters the fee structure for plots in the city’s cemeteries.
