County Commissioners Meeting October 26, 2010

The County Commissioner's Meeting was a short and quick one this evening. Those items discussed that had to deal with Grayton Beach were as follows:

1. Short Term Rental Ordinance ( A new ordinance will be drawn up and submitted within 60 days and then a public hearing will be held. You can contact the following two people with any comments or suggestions as they have been charged to draw up a new Short Term rental Ordinance and also tie it into our Land Use Business Ordinance.:

 Ms. Lynn Hoshihara

Director of Planning and Development Services

2. Driving on the Beach Permit  (public hearing Dec 14th, 2010 at South Walton Annex) The Commissioners wanted the new draft to look at:
a. Improvement of disability permits
b. Perhaps having a cap of 900 permits issued (at present there are 726 permits)
c. Having a lottery for new permits issued
(This would allow 174 permits in the lottery if the 900 cap number sticks)
d. Changing requirements for permits

Ms. Hoshihara was charged with drawing up a new Driving on the Beach Ordinance, so feel free to contact her with your suggestions or concerns.

Also for those of you with dogs, the local Bark Park will now join Alaqua Animal Refuge and fall under their supervision. For those of you who might not know, they were having some financial difficulties.
