“We all agree that the option we’re most comfortable with is the $750,000 plus the $62,000 in rent reimbursement,” said Mullen. “That’s probably what’s going to happen.”

Canal master plan

In 2012 the council put together a master plan to make major updates and improvements to the Mexico Beach Canal. Three years later, the city will receive a state appropriation grant for $1.6 million dollars to be put toward the project.

In spring of 2013 the city also was awarded RESTORE funds from BP for the project, though they’ve yet to be disbursed.

The combined funds will cover the majority, if not all of the expenses for the project and the plan has been approved to begin design work.

“There are bright things ahead, money-wise,” said Mayor Al Cathey.
