After ending a contract with St. Augustine architect Walter O'Kon, city officials say O'Kon refuses to hand over all work related to the design and construction of the fire station, which was unveiled in April.

The city paid O'Kon $81,955 for design and construction administration.O'Kon maintains that the city already has his work -- a CD of the final drawings delivered by the workers at a Daytona Beach blueprint shop last week.He says the conflict is "over."
The city attorney has requested mediation.
...
But O'Kon, calling the city's request "excessive," does not consider drafts official records, and he does not believe the city owns more than the issued drawings provided in the scanned blueprint.
O'Kon says he may not have even retained copies of all his drafts, which could've amounted to 60 to 70 blueprints.
Challenging the city's assertion that all the work involved in the design and construction of the fire station is public record, O'Kon cites a state statute that grants exemption to designs of government buildings, including building plans, blueprints, schematic drawings, and diagrams.
...
O'Kon, who considers the difference of opinion a dead issue, won't budge.
...
O'Kon said he will not bid on that job.

At a City Council meeting in January when the fire station's final cost was approved, Walter O'Kon, the St. Augustine architect who designed the station, told the City Council that the station was not only meant to be functional, but to fit into the neighborhood.

"It is designed to be a good neighbor for upscale neighborhood communities," he said.
