Amunds said he and the rest of the board have a responsibility to “oversee Okaloosa County.”

“If you see an issue and you believe it’s wrong, you come up with an action plan, as we have done,” he said.

Abruzzo ended the committee meeting with a harsh rebuke of Okaloosa County leaders, telling them they had an obligation not to take advantage of the “national tragedy” that was the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of April 2010.

“What has occurred here is really a travesty,” Abruzzo said.
