“My concern lies with the economically disadvantaged,” said Parish. “If someone manages to meet the requirements with 80 percent of landowners agreeing and 20 percent disagreeing, which doesn’t include renters, then it’s possible that the economically disadvantaged will incur charges that are associated with address changes.”

Goodman assured him that he process of a road name change would still be held as any other change in the county, which would involve two public hearings before the final vote.

“Essentially it comes down to the Board as to whether or not they approve of the name change,” said Goodman. “Under Florida statute the board of county commissioners can change a road name when ever and where ever they want.”

Board approved of Consent Items, which included the minutes for Workshop and Regular session on Dec. 10 and Special Session on Dec. 30; Federally-Funded Subgrant Agreement for a courthouse generator for $38,175 with a $9,135 grant match; lands available for taxes; SHIP release of lien; EMS Resolution County Awards Grant; Arnold Lumber quote; and Application for Disaster Assistance Local Match Reduction or Waiver and Payment Defferal for Public Assistance.

The next meeting is set for 6 p.m. on Jan. 28.
