Commission approves pier contract extension

The occasionally wobbly agreement to run the Navarre Beach Pier that Coastal Concessions has with Santa Rosa County has been extended by commissioners through 2017.

In a unanimous vote, the panel renewed its relationship with locally-owned Coastal, which has endured criticism at times for falling behind on lease payments.

The only condition of the contract renewal, requested by District 2 Commissioner Bob Cole, is that Coastal do a more thorough job of documenting its ticket sales to pier goers.

Co-owners Stephanie Maddox and Scott Rayner told the board on Monday that they’re expecting 2016 to be the “biggest year in the pier history” with revenue topping $350,000. The company pays the county 5 percent of its revenue.
