“To bring the lighthouse down is dangerous,” Hardman said. “When it comes down it may not be fixable. It’s a little bit of a Catch-22 because it has to be moved.”

Betty McNeill, who has from the outset bemoaned any proposal to move the lighthouse off Cape San Blas, said the city should remember the history and collaborate with the county on moving the lighthouse to Salinas Park.

“Some things you can’t put a price tag on and one is the historical significance of the lighthouse,” McNeill said. “The city and county should cooperate to preserve the lighthouse and the complex.

“If we are at odds with each other it will be more complicated.”
