Commissioners discuss starting MSBU website

Published: Friday, September 27, 2013 at 09:48 AM.

“I may have a solution,” Bush said. “Can I have a motion that we will put the MSBU information out there as soon as we can find a way of handling the website postings to the website?”

Bush said that the county was still in the process of dividing up tasks since the loss of the county IT person, as well as the human resources director and the administrative secretary.

“Lets agree that this is a good idea and we’ll make it happen once we get through this transition,” Bush said.

The board voted in favor of the motion, except for Gothard, who voted “no.”

Consultant Bill Williams with SCG Governmental Affairs of Tallahassee also appeared before the board to give an update on the progress toward securing RESTORE Act funding for Washington County.

RESTORE Act funds are federally controlled funds resulting from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010 and which are coming from fines levied against BP for their part in the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history.

“We were waiting on the Treasury rulings, which came down last week, and we were not precluded,” Williams told the board. Williams was hired in March to serve as the county’s consultant in its bid for RESTORE Act money.
