Great News Membership,

For those that work in the Panhandle; Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton Counties will no longer require a FDEP Permit for reconstruction of docks, seawalls, boathouses, boatlifts, etc as a result of Hurricane Sally for an additional sixty days. The FMCA President, John Loftis and I, worked diligently with the Governor’s Office and FDEP to make this happen. Please refer to the Emergency Final Order for additional details.

We would like to compliment both Florida DEP and the Governor’s Office for the immediate response we received as a result of our request to extend the Emergency Executive Order. It reflects the importance of the association and our industry in general.

A thank you is in order to “Hal Lovato w/ HMP Marine Construction” for your help as well!! This order would not have happened without your assistance.

Please reach out if you would like a copy of the order to kelly.white@myfmca.org. John Loftis will be releasing a more detailed description of events at a later date with more details and thank you’s to follow.

Kelly White
Executive Director
