Hotelier gets six-month extension

Marilyn Hess, president of Holi Corp, successfully advocated county commissioners Jan. 22 for a six-month extension to start construction of a $30-million hotel on Navarre Beach.

Although Holi Corp originally requested a spot on the board’s agenda to request mortgaging the future hotel in the name of TIN, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holi Corp, Santa Rosa County Commissioners Jan. 20 also discussed issuing a notice of default since a June 23 agreement with the county required construction start by mid-January.

“I feel someone wanted to threaten us in a non-business friendly manner,” Hess said, telling commissioners they need to be pro-economic development.

“Communication goes both ways. You could have let us know,” Commission Chairman Don Salter replied. “Don’t point your finger at us.”
