BAY COUNTY COMMISIONERS RECENTLY STOPPED LYNN HAVEN'S LATEST ATTEMPT TO EXPAND NORTH OF THE BAILEY BRIDGE.
THEY ARGUED IN COURT THAT PROVIDING SERVICES WOULD BE DIFFICULT.
COMMISSIONERS HAVE BEEN CRITICIZED IN THE PAST, ONCE FOR FAILING TO CHALLENGE PANAMA CITY'S ANNEXATION UP HIGHWAY 231 IN THE MID-90'S
NOW THEY'RE TRYING TO SET A PRECEDENT WITH GRASSY POINT.
Jerry Girvin
Bay Co. Commissioner:
"that is an area that is growing and I can understand that lynn haven and several other cities maybe interested in moving to that area but th fact there is a barrier there that the law is very clear on. that cannot be crossed."

LYNN HAVEN COMMISSIONERS WILL MEET WITH THEIR ATTORNEY NEXT WEEK TO DECIDE THEIR NEXT MOVE.
