    Really, what gives these beach chair-hog guys the right to set up their mostly uncomfortable chairs taking up their disproportionate share of what little beach is available? Their actions are growing like the cancerous greed they are exhibiting!

    According to the website, the meeting is now on Tue 9/2 @ 9am.

    Will there be a roll call of vendors? What will happen to those not attending this "mandatory" meeting? Will their permits be revoked?

    or better yet, maybe not renewed next time? that'll get some people's attention, but i'm sure they've not got recourse (b@lls) to do something like that. at a minimum, the absentees should have to submit a written reason for not attending. We all know peeps who think their shiite don't stink and never seem to have to answer for why they don't / won't follow the guidelines... oh wait, i forgot the tears...

    Beach enforcement varies their enforcement. This is a quick summer financial windfall for vendors. One setup $30.00 +/- /Day x 7days $210.00 times 10 weeks = $2100.00
    And some vendors have multiple setups on multiple beaches.Do the rest of the math.....I would think they ( vendors) would want to keep their noses clean.

    This bunch really needs to shape up.

    Lots of $$$ at stake and they all think they Own the beach.

    WJHG 7 @ 6:00 tonight had a few minute spot with tape from this mornings meeting...I bet there was a heated debate. Looked like a lot of locals, didn't appear to be ALL vendors..

    Very well run meeting highlighting the general ignorance of most vendors to property rights and a basic understanding of the Beach ordinance.

    A small group of vendors ruining it for everyone else.

    No talk about the Grayton Beach Wedding Brawl...

    If the TDC Director and the Sherrif weren't there to address conduct first thing, then it was not a well run meeting in my opinion. Even if it was just one bad apple.

    We need to severely limit stuff on the beach. Our community was very passionate about getting rid of overnight tents and stuff. The number of chairs and umbrellas is just as big a problem.

    Perhaps the under utilized code enforcement officer could record violators so they can be denied vendor licenses in the future?

    They should remind vendors that a beach vending permit and a beach driving permit are 2 different things!

    It is subject to Sunshine.

    Everything that was discussed is also Public Record. This would include the binder that Mr. Bagby had with the numerous complaint letters received.

    Just call and request it...

    Local, I know you are being facetious about Code Enforcement. Walton County's Code Enforcement department is a farce... and that is putting it nicely. I've never seen an area that is so afraid to do anything except pass the buck to some other area. WHY are they even there?!
