During the previous meeting Sellers had informed them that the town had received a letter from the Department of Environmental Protection stating that all the requirements to get the water system up to code was almost complete, but the last requirement was also the most expensive.

Sellers told them a representative would be present at the June meeting to discuss what the Florida Rural Water Association could do to help.

Powell informed the council that the Dollar General had applied to Bonifay for an alcoholic beverage license and a tobacco permit because the corporate branch failed to realize that even though the store had a Bonifay address it was in the town of Esto.

Madden gave an update on the 2nd Annual Two-Toe Tom Festival, which will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, at John W. Clark Park in Esto.

“We’re still seeing about getting Jerome Jackson to perform for us,” said Madden. “He’s asking for $600 and we’re trying to talk him down on the price, especially since he’s only going to give us 45 minutes and last year he came for $450 and that was for an hour and a half.”
