Navarre Incorporation

NAVARRE   --  A follow up on the push to incorporate Navarre and make it a city.

There was a meeting last night to discuss the issue, and the cost that would come with it.   
   
A consultant broke down the numbers.
Funding for things like a Navarre City Council or a Parks And Recreation Department would come from taxes they're already paying.
   
And the rest would come from the state.
 In other words, there'd be no tax increases.
The main reasons supporters want to see Navarre become its own city, is to give Navarre it's own voice.
   
But there are some concerns.
"We can decide what kind of city we want to be, what kind of growth we want to have"

"I don't want it to become some huge big area like Destin you just can't back out of it"

Now this is still a lengthy process.
The goal is to put a bill in front of state legislators in 2015.
Legislators will decide on whether or not it should be put on the ballot.
If it is, citizens will then vote on it.
