FORT WALTON BEACH -- An open seat on the Okaloosa County Tourist Development Council is generating high interest among local business owners.

“I had some folks who immediately applied,” said Dan O’Byrne, director of the tourist development department.

The seat became available earlier this year when TDC member Tim Edwards moved his residence to Freeport.

“You have to be a registered voter in Okaloosa County,” O’Byrne said.

Edwards, a co-owner of Fudpucker’s Beachside Bar & Grill, had served on the TDC since 2009. His term was set to expire at the end of the year.

The open seat, which carries a four-year term, is set aside for a county resident directly involved in a non-lodging, tourism-related business.
