County to consider bed tax hike

Commission Chair Cheryl Sanders said renovation of the Coombs Armory had top priority for funding. She said she also supported increased funding for the Camp Gordon Johnston Museum.

She said a third important project was public restrooms for the beach at Alligator Point.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, Alan Feiffer, president of the Alligator Point Taxpayers Association (APTA) asked Sanders to come and discuss the bathrooms with APTA. He said that the addition of bathrooms would bring increased traffic to the beach and that parking was already insufficient for visitors to the site.

Sanders said before voting on including a referendum on the November ballot, she wanted to see the wording.

Jackel moved that Shuler prepare a referendum for consideration. Massey seconded the motion and it passed with Lockley and Parrish opposed.

Shuler said he could present a draft at the next county meeting. Jackel said the TDC had until September to provide the referendum to the Supervisor of Elections.

Once again, Lockley moved to bring administration of the TDC under county control and Parrish seconded the motion.
