“I’ll be waiting for your list and appreciate any commissioners helping out in District 3.”

When Williams later raised the issue during public comment, Commission chair Tan Smiley had enough.

He said the issue had been addressed, he was sure Bryan would deal with any problems and “some phone calls get returned and some don’t, that is the way it is” given a commissioner holding down a full-time job or business.

Beacon Hill sign

Former Commissioner Bill Williams appeared to discuss the situation with the sign that formerly promoted his business at Beacon Hill.

The sign is on the U.S. Highway 98 right-of-way and is in disrepair.

The county has cited it as out of compliance with the sign ordinance, but Williams asked for time to get the sign in shape and wondered if it could not be useful as a way to advertise Veterans Memorial Park at Beacon Hill and Gulf County.
