Santa Rosa County Commissioners on Thursday are expected to pass a resolution formally acknowledging a “conflict” with the City of Gulf Breeze over failed promises the municipality made regarding improvements to Tiger Point Golf Course.
Residents at the board’s June 22 meeting told commissioners about rodent infestation and other problems associated with what they describe as neglectful management of the course since the city acquired the golf course and in December 2012 promised to rebuild and restore the west golf course, which has since been closed down.
According to County Attorney Roy Andrews, the board of county commissioners must pass the resolution to initiate the Governmental Conflict Resolution Act, which calls for staff from the county and city to meet within 30 days.
Andrews said a full meeting between the board of county commissioners and city council would take place if the matter wasn’t resolved and legal remedies would be available if mediation efforts were unsuccessful.
