Better communication needs to happen between both elected bodies! The needs of the city and the needs of the county are certainly different in many ways. We must work together on Continue reading

Will you agree to split the local cost share for beach renourishment with the City of Fernandina Beach? If so, how? If not, why?

Our beaches are one of the main reasons tourists come to our County. By maintaining our pristine beaches the return on the investment is certainly worthwhile. As far as funding for this, the BOCC must try and establish a reserve account to put a certain amount of money each year aside to pay our share when the time comes.

Will you agree to split the local cost share for beach renourishment with the City of Fernandina Beach? If so, how? If not, why?

I understand that there are a number of additional aspects including federal funding subsidies and an independent taxing entity at Continue reading
