What's Up
County Says Only Tagged Vehicles on Beach Streets. -

If golf cart owners wish to add the necessary items, then they must jump through a few more hoops to get a tag. Dale Sylvia at BuggyWorx in Pensacola explains the process.

“Once the required accessories are installed they would fill out necessary forms and then get the cart weighed at a truck stop. Take the forms and the weight slip to the DMV on Stumpfield Road. They are the field office for this area so it is either that facility or the next closest one that does the inspections is in Panama City,” said Sylvia.  “The DMV will schedule an appointment for the owner to bring the cart in for the inspection. Assuming the cart passes they would receive a VIN# and title at that time.”

SRIA Meets -

July 23, 2013 SRIA Meeting Notes

Development and Leasing Committee Meeting:

There was no monthly update presented on the lease fee and property tax issue. The request to bifurcate the Bonifay Water Sports concession agreement so the Pensacola Beach Yacht Club can move  next door is in a holding pattern waiting for necessary documents to arrive from Bonifay Water Sports owner John Ehrenreich. The request to bring a flyboard business to Flounder’s was denied.

Administrative Committee Meeting:

Financial Report for May 2014 showed revenues are greater than expected in the budget and are 2.6 percent greater than the previous May, however, the collections are lagging slightly behind for the entire year. The policy to give local vendors a priority will be placed on the agenda for the Full Board in August so staff can supply additional information. A $2500 donation request from the NWF Chapter League of Southeastern Credit Unions’ Golf Tourney at Marcus Point was funded at $1500. The host hotel is on Pensacola Beach.

Special Full Board Meeting

A letter requesting the County obtain an $8.5 million loan on behalf of the SRIA to pay the local match for beach renourishment was approved. The collateral would be lease fees, and secondarily Local Option Sales Taxes and Pensacola Beach leaseholders’ real property taxes which have been escrowed.

A list of Pensacola Beach projects for Local Option Sales Tax funding consideration will be submitted to Escambia County. The priorities included pedestrian crosswalks, northshore and Gulfside beach renourishment, a core area pedestrian promenade boardwalk, and a smart parking system.

Executive Director Buck Lee noted that the county is not favorable to the adoption of the proposed Beach Golf Cart ordinance. County staff would like to require vehicles meet licensing and tag requirements. The item is on the BCC July 24, 2014 agenda.
