WALTON COUNTY-- Walton County Commissioners are moving forward with negotiations for a temporary parking lot in South Walton.
Recently, county administrator Larry Jones was notified by a South Walton property owner, that land on Highway 393 was available to lease as a parking lot for visitors and residents.
Back in 2007, the county leased this same property for $10,000, and it helped with some of the congestion and traffic on 30A.
The next step is negotiating a price.
"We have had some discussions with Mr. Jim Bagby, over at the TDC, of the possibility of the TDC funding a portion of that lease if the board decides to move forward. At your permission we will move forward, have some discussions with the owner, and bring a recommendation back at the next meeting," Jones said.
Back in 2007, the county leased the property for just over 2 months.
