Mexico Beach Has New City Clerk

After months of controversy and accusations of bullying Mexico Beach has a new city clerk.
At Tuesday's City Council meeting members vote 3 to 2 in favor of hiring Sharon McGee from Lynn Haven.
Former Clerk Debbie McLeod resigned from the position a couple of months ago.
McLeod claims she quit because Council Member Tanya Castro bullied and harassed her.
Something Castro denies.
Other items on the agenda, what to do about floating fish carcasses in the city's canal and along their beautiful beaches.
The federal shortening of the snapper season has led to an increase in the problem of heads and carcasses in the canal and Mexico Beach residents have complained enough for the city to take measures to clean the canal.
The city had tried to levy the problem with dumpsters but the stench just led to more problems with residents in the area.
People have returned to dumping the heads and carcasses in the canals.
Tuesday, council members discussed with input from many residents, how to keep it clean in the future.
The city has decided to start by posting signs about proper disposal and gutting that allow the fish to sink.
They say they'll re-visit the problem in the next coming weeks if it doesn't alleviate itself.
