On Tuesday, December 4, 2018 the Graceville Civic Center will be the venue for the third Town Hall Meeting. That meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. CST at 5224 Brown Street, Graceville, FL.

As with the first Town Hall meeting, representatives from FEMA will be present as well as local officials.

In an effort to permit the residents of Jackson County to live in temporary housing due to the damage sustained from Hurricane Michael, the Board of County Commissioners is allowing the use of Recreational Vehicles (RVs) on premises for a period of 18 months.  The time period is effective November 20, 2018 through May 20, 2020.  This grace period will allow our residents to have shelter while repairing or rebuilding their homes.  All County property owners must register the RVs through Community Development by completing a Residential Development Order (RDO).  Once the RDO is approved a permit must be obtained through the Building Department.  The Board waived the fees for RDOs and permits for RVs as long as evidence of storm related damage is provided.  For information you may contact Community Development at 850-482-9367 or the Building Department at 850-482-9802.
