At Monday's meeting, the Destin City Council voted to turn over tapes of their last three meetings to the state attorney’s office.

The city council meetings became contentious after council members charged that City Manager Greg Kisela had broke a city ordinance by selling 14 city cemetery plots to local Businessman Rick Olson.

The limit for one person or family is supposed to be six.

Since then, allegations have flown back and forth at city council meetings.

Some council members say Kisela wrongfully fired his city clerk and others, in turn, have charged council members with breaking Florida Sunshine laws about public communication.

Council members say they will leave it up to the state attorney to decide whether any laws have been violated.

Some city council members say they hope meetings can return to normal now.

The state attorney investigations, for now, will center only on the meeting minutes.
