Buzzett, echoing comments about chemical runoff, added that it was time the city enforced taking people on Cape San Blas off septic tanks. The city had run a sewer line the length of the cape and peninsula. Now was the time to rid the southern end of the county of septic tanks.

May said he hoped somebody would pick up the baton and continue the effort to save the bay, though given the resistance to his strategy he said he was obviously not that man. But he said it was an effort worth undertaking.

Mayor Mel Magidson said the burden really fell on those in attendance who rejected May’s plan but who have a vested interest in the future health of the bay.
