Town hall meeting to discuss Laurel Hill dissolution on Tuesday

Published: Friday, December 7, 2012 at 02:43 PM.

 McVay — who said he doesn’t want to continue paying both city and county property taxes — said he wants repairs for Laurel Hill’s main roads, including Steel Mill Creek Road and State Road 85.

"The dirt road I live on is a lot smoother than (the paved) roads in Laurel Hill," McVay said. "I think the county would eventually do something about it."

Okaloosa County Commissioner Wayne Harris said neither he nor the other commissioners plan to attend the town hall meeting.

"I don't want my or any other commissioner's presence at the meeting to be misconstrued (as) being for or against," Harris said in an email. "I know that (Okaloosa County) will stand by whatever decision is made and will equally help, if legal to help."

The council set Tuesday's town hall at its Nov. 15 meeting. Long-time resident Harold Jones raised the issue when discussing the main roads’ poor condition.    

WANT TO GO? The town hall meeting is 6 p.m. Tuesday at First Baptist Church of Laurel Hill. A city council meeting will follow.
