TDC maps beach ambassador program

“They can talk to them face to face and just give them the information with a smile,” Jenkins said. “That is how Gulf County is.”

The “ambassadors” will also be county employees who can keep the TDC and BOCC abreast of how the new beach cleaning contractor is performing and can, in short, be extra eyes to nip potential problems before they might escalate.

“Beach safety will really be enhanced,” Jenkins said.

The “ambassadors” can also serve as walking informational kiosks, providing visitors with information about local landmarks and businesses, essential contacts, the environment and species that call this slice home and all things Gulf County sun and water.

The foundation of the program will be folding all ordinances that pertain to the beaches and tourist activities in one ordinance. Beach driving and leash laws are separate, for example.

Should there be campfires on the beach?

The aim is to have one overriding ordinance to provide a mandate for “ambassadors” for the code enforcement side.
