At their last meeting, the Board of County Commissioners voted to substantially change their position on fee-simple title on Pensacola Beach while discussing an UN-ADVERTISED item on the County Attorney's report. The new referendum language that they plan to put on November's ballot will be discussed at their August 2nd meeting. If you believe that future boards should not be hindered in decisions affecting title to leaseholds that are currently being taxed as thought we own them, you need to come and BE HEARD!
