Mexico Beach city council appoints new member

During the pre-agenda meeting, Castro requested that the Parker House be addressed at each meeting until a resolution had been reached with the insurance company and also so that the public knew that it was a priority with the council.

The group has been awaiting a decision on receiving an additional $90,000 in insurance monies for more than two years.

“We need to make a decision based on what we know today,” said Castro. “This could go on forever, waiting on insurance money.”

Mullen, who has been the point of contact with the insurance company, gave an update at Tuesday’s meeting and said that the council may have a final answer by next week.

Woodham, eager to move the process along, suggested that the group meet with builders Cathey construction by the beginning of Feb. to finalize plans for building the new city hall on the Parker House property.

“We need a new city hall,” Woodham said. “Let’s start moving on this particular project. We can’t procrastinate and sit around so long.

“I’d like to see ground broken in 15 days.”
