I appreciated the opportunity to come on the show this morning with Jim Sanborn and Don Parker to discuss multiple areas of continuing concern for the Board of County Commissioners. Among the topics discussed this morning:
--Upcoming contract renewal talks between the BCC and administrator Jack Brown
--BCC's purchase of the Forest Creek Apartment Complex due to continuing and worsening drainage issues
--Discussions with ECAT on the future of mass transit in Escambia County
--Ongoing budget issues
--New Jail construction
--School Board and County working for more Vocational/Technical training opportunities
--my upcoming transition to become Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners
