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

One main qualifier is that the applicant must be a registered voter in Walton County, a criterion Meadows said the TDC overlooked.

“They’re all qualified,” Moliterno later told The Sun. But, “there is an individual who is currently not a ... Walton County registered voter. The commission will be asked to just not include that applicant in their voting.”

The applicants must also be “in good standing,” and Moliterno had written a note on one application for attorney Clay Adkinson to define the term. Adkinson said the phrase may point to a business owner who might be delinquent in bed tax remittances. He said it has nothing to do with an individual being in litigation with the county.

While she had the ear of Moliterno, Meadows moved the conversation to general TDC operations, especially concerning an incident when a bed tax collector approached the TDC for reservations help.

“The bed tax collector was told to never contact the TDC again for reservations,” said Meadows.

Moliterno immediately wrote that off as misinformation, replying, “We've never said that. I have no idea who stated that.”

District 4 Commissioner Sara Comander piped in, “May I suggest you two get together?”
