“Attorney Theriaque presented the following information relating to the economic impacts of tourism: Tourism has a $2.9 billion direct economic impact annually to Walton County; 19,500 jobs are directly related to tourism; $202 million was spent on tourists' accommodations in June and July of 2015; south Walton County was the #1 Coastal Economy in Florida for tourism in June and July of2015; and 3.2 million tourists visit south Walton County every year. By not allowing the public/tourists on the beaches it would bring substantial economic harm to the county. “
“Mr. David Ravschkolb spoke about the economic impacts which are self-evident”
Ooops...one inconvenient truth: The economy is not one of the 4 cornerstones of customary use.
Great post, @Stone Cold J .
