She also announced her beach cleaning initiative that will put paid workers on the beach each week, Memorial Day through Labor Day, and a beach ambassador program that will supplement the Sheriff’s Office patrols and offer helpful tips to visitors who may not be following the county beach ordinances.

Those ordinances will also be listed on new signs, soon to be placed on the Cape and Indian Pass and can be purchased by homeowners to help educate Gulf County tourists.

U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland and State Sen. Bill Montford were scheduled to be in attendance, but canceled allowing for Beshears to kick off the meeting.

Beshears commiserated with the audience on the recent flood insurance premium jumps of 28-32 percent that some residents faced.  He also addressed recent remapping of flood zones, which attributed to the hike, but didn’t notify those affected.

Beshears said that Southerland was aware of the problems.

“Steve knows it’s wrong,” said Beshears. “He’s working on it.”
