Lighthouse to close as move process begins

County and city officials pledged last week to work together to save the lighthouse, which the city is proposing as a centerpiece for bayfront recreational area in George Core Park.

Radiology machine transfer

During last Tuesday’s bi-monthly regular meeting, city commissioners also approved a request to transfer a piece of radiology equipment from the Gulf County Health Department to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf.

The city donated dollars bequeathed to it to help the GCHD purchase the equipment. The intent of the purchase was to facilitate orthopedic services provided by Tallahassee Orthopedic Clinic at the GCHD.

However, TOC has closed its Port St. Joe offices and the equipment is no longer in use at the Health Department.

Sacred Heart, city attorney Tom Gibson said, could use the equipment, which he said is four or five years old.

“This is a good thing for the hospital and for anyone visiting the hospital,” Gibson said.
