Today's Commissioner's meeting
There is a lot on the agenda for today’s regular business meeting at the Crestview Courthouse, which starts at 8:30am. 
🦊The Commissioners will vote on whether or not to approve the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge’s lease extension of a fire station the County owns on Okaloosa Island. (We recently sat down and talked with ECWR about their upcoming location. Watch here!)
🚌Also up on the agenda is a public hearing about the fare modifications for the transit system that operates in Okaloosa County. Commissioners are looking at a fare increase ($1.50 for a ride now to $2 a ride). According to the County, this will help the transit system stand on its own two feet and allow the subsidizing funds the County uses to keep transit operating on other urgent needs. 
♻️By now you know, the Commissioners (minus Boyles) have proposed to change the destination of county recyclables from the ECUA facility in Pensacola to the Spring Hill Waste-to-Energy facility in Jackson county. More than likely, this item will be pulled (taken off the agenda) in order to discuss it further at the County listening session (October 10th @ 5:30pm in Shalimar)
🚗Triumph Gulf Coast (the nonprofit tasked by the state of Florida to distribute the funds from the BP Oil Spill Settlement) and Okaloosa County have tentatively agreed on a list of terms for the money that was approved to build the southwest Crestview bypass. The agreement is worth $64 million.
👩‍💼And finally, the county attorney will give his recommendation on who the county should hire to represent them in their lawsuits against companies which manufactured and marketed opioids to the American public. 
Ok, that’s all I have for you this morning! Hope you have a great Tuesday and we will talk tomorrow.
