Gerry Demers, interim county administrator, recently requested direction from the Walton County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) on the possibility of county staff working with the Walton County Sheriff's Office to develop proposed amendments to the noise ordinance. These would be for procedures that would help with enforcement of the ordinance in connection with "event houses."

Demers brought up the idea at the May 28 BCC regular meeting at the Walton County Courthouse.

Demers explained that he was seeking direction from the BCC on the possibility of county planning, administrative, and code enforcement staff getting together with the sheriff's personnel and attorney on ways to amend the ordinance so that code enforcement would be able to work better with deputies to enforce the ordinance. He noted that event houses and related behavior have been an ongoing issue both for code enforcement and for the sheriff's office.

"The Environmental Crimes Investigator can work closely with D.E.P and Code Enforcement to figure out a resolution to the problem quickly." Demers agrees. "It's kind of a partnership.

The initial inclusion of that item didn't go over well with the crowd gathered at the Jan. 8 BCC meeting, when Interim County Administrator Gerry Demers brought the revised ordinance before the commission for approval.

"At the last board meeting, the board directed me to remove that," said Demers. "The reason I removed it was because the board directed me to; it was probably based on the public."
Demers was tapped last year as the person in charge of revising and compiling existing beach ordinances to make a singular, comprehensive one.
...
"Gerry went out of bounds," said Meadows.
...
So Demers obliged and removed "that language and put it back to the way it was in the existing ordinance," he said.
