Mexico Beach may lose current city hall

The hits just keep on coming.

During last week’s regular meeting for the month of March, Mexico Beach city administrator Chris Hubbard told the city council that the current city hall, an old bank building off of U.S. Highway 98 is in danger of being sold.

People’s South, a bank franchise based out of Georgia, will be opening three branches in Bay County, two of which will be located in the Panama City area and the third is targeted for Mexico Beach.

A building inspector visited current city hall to ensure it was in good working order and Hubbard said that there was nothing wrong with the building that might cause delays if someone wanted to purchase the building and move in.

The bank has 90 days to notify the council if they intend to purchase it.

“We may be looking for a new home soon,” Hubbard told the council.

It’s already been a game of musical chairs for various departments around the city.
