The saga continued Tuesday for the Bay County Commissioners mission to gain a seat on the Bay Medical Center Board of Trustees.

Commissioners did not approve BMC's recent nomination Olivia Cooley to fill Seat One.

If the commissioners turn down three nominations from BMC's board, they'll get to decide who will fill the seat.
They've openly talked about appointing a commissioner to join the board.

Commissioner Guy Tunnell says some communication issues and the future of BMC's pension plan is his reason for doing this.

"I hate that it's got to this point. You know, I have the utmost respect for those board members and the nominees that they've put forth. It's just unfortunate that we can't work this out and get some reconciliation here and move on past this. I think it's critical that we do that," said Tunnell.

The BMC board of trustees will have 30 days to come up with another nomination for commissioners to vote on.
Two nominees have already been turned down by commissioners.
