‘Communication lines will be open’: Newly elected commissioner takes on TDC in first meeting

Published: Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 04:19 PM.

New District 5 Commissioner Cindy Meadows was anything but quiet at Tuesday’s BCC meeting.

She seemed to focus in on operations at the Walton County TDC, especially concerning applications for TDC advisory council members.

“I think what she was looking for was more time for a thorough review of the applications,” said TDC Executive Director Dawn Moliterno. “I can appreciate that.”

There are four open seat appointments, and the BCC has the final say on which of the 11 applicants would fill each.

The commission, which includes three new elected officials who were sworn in Nov. 20, were scheduled to vote on TDC applicants at the Nov. 27 meeting. But that didn’t happen. Moliterno said the applications were submitted to the county Nov. 20 to give each commissioner plenty of time to look each application over. 

Apparently, Meadows did not receive hers until Nov. 26, and in the time she had to review it, some of the applicants raised a red flag, as far as their meeting all of the qualifying criteria.

“Somebody in your shop needs to pay much better attention to detail,” Meadows told Moliterno.
