County declines BP offer

That claim, commissioners were informed, was tied to the TDC claim in a lump sum. Novak noted that was not how BP settled claims to the west in Bay County.

The amount of the offer to the county was not made public on Tuesday.

Commissioner Warren Yeager motioned that the county should proceed as if headed to litigation.

“I think there is room for further discussion with BP,” Yeager said. “We should pursue litigation on the county claim.”

A motion was also made to settle the TDC claim if the opportunity to separate it from the county was realized.

“That may be helpful to resolve this,” Martin said.
