Dredging permit process inches forward

Operational viability in question

While the Port Authority pursues the dredging, considered the key to unlocking the port’s potential through development, board members continued to wrestle with dwindling resources.

As part of a community outreach campaign, board member Johanna White said she received positive response from the Board of County Commissioners and the St. Joe Company.

She said Jorge Gonzalez, senior vice president for St. Joe, indicated the company “had the resources, talent and people” to become the point of contact for the Port Authority.

The phones at the Port Authority office could be forwarded to St. Joe, which would screen prospects, send out marketing materials and perform other administration duties, White said.

“Maybe just getting the phones forwarded and information to the appropriate people will work,” White said.
