Yeager added that he was sure the stretch run of work for the committee would include public town hall meetings for input from those not participating in the committee.

“Everybody is going to have a large opportunity to weigh in on this,” Yeager said.

Land use fee waiver

Commissioners, citing precedent set by the BOCC in January, agreed to waive the fee for a small scale land use map amendment to the county comprehensive plan requested by the son of Commissioner Carmen McLemore.

The BOCC earlier this year decided to waive the $500 application fee for a small scale land use map amendment in the cases of property owners whose property had during the 1990 adoption of the comp plan been mistakenly placed in a conservation designation.

Such a designation does not allow building. The parcel in question, along the Chipola River, is surrounded by other lands also designated conservation, some of which are in state hands others in private hands.

The waiver fee had raised questions, Commissioner Ward McDaniel noted.
