“The potential for further port improvements and job creation bodes well for the City of Port St. Joe, Gulf County and the entire region."

County Commissioner Warren Yeager said the county was excited about the ongoing progress with the Port of Port St. Joe and said as past chairman of the Port Authority he understood the difficulties of securing new port business.

“The St. Joe Company needs to be commended on its efforts and Gulf County is pleased for this announcement,” Yeager said. “These are exciting times, not only for Port St. Joe and Gulf County, but the entire region. Economic development has taken a huge step forward for all of us."

Congressman Steve Southerland echoed those comments.

"This agreement is an important step forward for Port St. Joe and the surrounding area," Southerland said. "This is a great example of two partners of industry and innovation coming together to seek to create jobs and expand economic development, and I couldn't be happier about the opportunities it will bring to Northwest Florida."
