Laurel Hill council to push for dissolution ordinance Tuesday

However, the city lost consideration in 2012 for not having a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, or NPDES, permit submitted with the grant application.

"That money could provide a lot of street repair," Hendren said. "I think everyone in the council will be for it."

Should the city get the grant, Hendren suggested the grant would provide timelier road improvements than the county could provide.  

"It would be awhile before the county gets out here to repair our streets," Hendren said.

If a dissolution ordinance passes, roadwork wouldn't immediately happen, Okaloosa County officials have said.

"It’s not like we show up the next day and start repairing the roads," Okaloosa County Public Works Director John Hofstad said at the December town hall. "We have a process we have to go through."

Protocol would require county commissioners’ consideration and approval of the project and its funding.
