“It makes me feel better as a commissioner and a taxpayer that they are feeling such pride in their city,” Buzzett said.

The city will still bid out – and did so formally during Tuesday’s regular bi-monthly meeting – a portion of the second phase, primarily areas around Port St. Joe Elementary School and adjoining streets as well as the area around the former Gulf Pines Hospital.

That will include Juniper, Sunset Circle and 20th Street.

The State Revolving Fund has guaranteed a $1 million “forgiveness” loan and an $800,000 loan for the city to finish the second phase.

Grantland and his team will concentrate primarily along Marvin, Long Avenue, U.S. 98 and adjoining and intersecting streets.

“We think we will be able to save several hundred thousand dollars,” said city manager Jim Anderson.

Grantland said the savings could top half a million dollars.
