Beach Changes Being Considered in Walton County
Changes are being considered for
Walton County’s Beaches
In a recent meeting with the Walton County Commissioners some of the areas they’re looking at include further definitions of a “tent” and an “umbrella”, banning tents from some of the beaches, or possibly considering a law to keep from people linking their tents together.
Other areas of this discussion included changing the process of vendor suspensions and revocations of permits, defining violations and their severity and the possibility of using a point system for vendors. This way if they get to a certain amount of points then they will be suspended, not just for the first violation.
Commissioners are looking to clear up some of these issues before next year’s Tourist Season, therefore they are asking that specific proposed changes to the ordinances be brought to them for consideration by January 1, 2022.
