Mexico Beach Council receives settlement offer on Parker House

Published: Thursday, February 13, 2014 at 01:44 PM.

As negotiations dragged on through last year, citizens regularly called for the council to make a decision and for progress to continue on the new city hall.

In his short time on the council, Gary Woodham has also been a proponent of moving forward on the project regardless of the insurance claim outcome.

During the council’s regular meeting on Tuesday, Councilman Bobby Pollock, responded to Candice Burgess’ call for “decency, civility and respect in government” at January’s meeting.

Pollock directly addressed Burgess’ statement and those citizens who stood in support, saying that he was all for fairness and working together, but resented members of the council being referred to as “liars, dishonest and corrupt” over the past two years.

“I would love to work with the people,” said Pollock. “But sweep under your own doorsteps before you come into mine.”
