Port dredge app submitted

Roberts has already signed up nine business owners with interest from several more. Those nine already committed would generate $5,400 annually to the Port Authority through monthly lease payments.

Businesses along Industrial Road have long bemoaned the city of Port St. Joe’s sign ordinance, which bans off-premises sign, constraining the exposure for those businesses.

The proposed sign on Arizona Chemical property would likewise be illegal, but Port Authority attorney Tom Gibson, also the city’s attorney, said he would bring it to the City Commission.

He believed commissioners would look favorably on the proposal.

Foreclosure litigation

The Port Authority within the next week to 10 days will schedule a closed door executive session to discuss strategy in the Capital City Bank foreclosure proceeding.

Though the barge bulkhead – itself worth $5 million, Pitts, the former port director, said – and uplands property is listed to be auctioned April 11, Gibson said a final court order has not been filed so the property can not yet be auctioned.
