A food distribution event will be held on May 24, the first day of summer break for area students, to help ensure that kids who receive free or reduced lunches during school don’t go hungry. The event will include food and a free concert.

Scoggins said that it was important to him to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem and reported that in 2013 the Hope Center had fed 92 children in the community and had helped more than 200 families since its inception.

In addition to providing food and clothes to those in need, Scoggins said that he sets aside $1,000 each month from his Five Star profits to help those who have emergencies and need a helping hand.

Magidson thanked Scoggins and Atkinson for their service to the community.

Port of Port St. Joe

Leonard Costin from the Port St. Joe Port Authority took the podium to inform the public that the permitting process for necessary dredging had been turned over to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers which may be able to expedite the process.

Costin said that a larger area would be needed for the dredging spoils, a combination of silty clay and organics and identified a 38-acre parcel of land near the port owned by the city as a possible destination. Costin wanted to work out some sort of trade with the city for use of the land to keep costs down.
