Holmes Beach supports consolidation language

Holmes Beach city commissioners discussed language for a non-binding referendum to pursue consolidating the three Island cities.

At its work session July 26, commissioners reviewed proposed referendum language presented by city attorney Patricia Petruff, which would ask voters if they support the city's participation in studies to explore the feasibility of consolidating.

Commissioner Rich Bohnenberger stated for the record that he isn't in favor of "doing any of this."

Commissioner Pat Morton said he wanted to see something move forward for public input and asked that it be put on the agenda for the next regular commission meeting.
