BONIFAY — Bonifay City Council approved plans presented by Hatch Mott MacDonald, pending fulfillment of all state and city requirements, to move forward with building the new Family Dollar on State Road 79 at the juncture of Veteran’s Boulevard during the June 10 meeting.

“It is going to be an 8,230 square-foot facility and lines up with Veteran’s Boulevard,” said Brian Justice with Hatch Mott MacDonald. “All of our permits are done, with some pending but most cleared.”

City approved Hatch Mott MacDonald’s request to wave half of the impact fee for a larger line under the pretence that the city could use the larger line to support more business and residential growth in that area.

City approved of Resolution 13-15, which allows the state attorney to prosecute those who are in violation of city ordinances.

“It’s what will allow us to enforce our new ordinances through out the city with civil action,” said Bonifay Police Chief Chris Wells.

Lora Ponds, representing the Bonifay Down Home Street Festival, presented a check of $2,000 to the Bonifay Police Department and $3,000 to the Bonifay Fire Department from a portion of the money raised from last year’s event.

“We’ve had yet another successful year and just wanted to thank the community for all of their love and support,” said Ponds. “Sonny Shroyer sent an autographed picture to the ‘great city of Bonifay’ and thanks them for showing him so much loving kindness.”
