Walton County Getting Serious about Rules of the Beach!
Walton County has seen an alarming increase in drowings this past year on the Gulf of Mexico so they're becoming proactive in efforts to keep beach goers out of the waters.
Earlier this year the fines were increased for those who disobey the Double Flag Warnings of the Beach. The fines for people not complying have been raised from $100 to a $500 Fine for those who defy the rules and disobey the law.
Other measures that will be taking place is through the enlistment of the Beach Vendors frequenting and selling on the Beach. Once the Double Flag Warning is initiated Beach Vendors will begin collecting their chairs, umbrellas, etc. to deter people from staying on the beach
