Town hall meeting to discuss Laurel Hill dissolution on Tuesday

That means getting expert advice along the way.

Hendren said he spoke with an attorney from Cedar Grove in Bay County, which experienced a similar situation.

 "Cedar Grove was the first Florida municipality to be dissolved by a vote from citizens (in 2008)," Hendren said.

The church’s fellowship hall will be ready for the meeting, the Rev. Mike McVay said.

"I hope a lot of people will be here," he said.

McVay, who owns property in the city, said he personally favors this north county community rejoining Okaloosa County, but he is open to hearing the benefits of remaining a city.

"If there is one advantage to remaining the city, I hope to know by Tuesday night," he said. "I've never seen the advantage of it."
