Bonifay City and Kiwanis Club come to terms

“We’ve had Wal-Mart interested in building here and there seemed to be something between the city and the project that it never went through,” said Gonsalves. “I’m here because I think the best thing to do is come before the council and talk about it, that way if there’s any questions or concerns we can all be on the same page.”

Mayor Lawrence Cloud said that he was interested in seeing growth come to Bonifay.

“We’re all about growth and that would be considered a great asset,” said Cloud.

Gonsalves said that he was interested in looking into marketing to Cracker Barrel and a large RV Dealership.

He also said that the company building the subdivision on Griffith Circle was approved but because of the economy was unable to finish, so their companies are now collaborating to continue but that it would become a gated community.

“We’ll have all of the access codes given to city and county workers, since it is still a county maintained road,” said Gonsalves.

He said that he would be back as soon as he had an interested buyer.
