Mexico Beach City Council Moves Forward with Plans to Purchase Abandoned Church

Mexico Beach City Council members are moving forward with plans to buy an abandoned church for use as the city’s police department.

The Council approved a non-binding letter of intent to lease building from Bishop Gregory L. Parkes of the Catholic Church for 2 years. The church not in the Mexico Beach city limits.

So Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen has agreed to grant the city jurisdiction over the property.
The Council also discussed Cathey Construction handling building and the engineering for the new city hall.

The plan is to build the facility on the old Parker House site. Several residents expressed their frustration with the way Preble-Rish and the city are handling the new water distribution project. There have been a number of water outages, both planned and unplanned, that has led to water boils.

The project should be completed in a few months.
