Okaloosa County is hosting a Public Workshop to introduce the Coastal Storm Risk Management Study to the public. This is a very important meeting concerning the beaches and the impact a major storm would have on the Okaloosa economy. See www.usace.army.mil/Missions/Civil-Works/Project-Partnership-Agreements/CSRM for more information.
Pursuant to section 286.011, Florida Statutes, notice is hereby given that various members of the Okaloosa County Commission may attend a Public Workshop to be held at the Emerald Coast Convention Center (Sunset 1 & 2) on Thursday, November 15, 2018 beginning at 6:00 pm and ending at approximately 8:00 pm.
The purpose of the meeting will be to introduce the coastal storm risk management study that is being conducted in partnership with the US Army Corps of Engineers and solicit early public input on their related concerns. This study will determine if there is a feasible project which the Corps can execute to reduce risk of storm damages to the coastal areas of Okaloosa County.
The public is welcomed to attend.
In honor of Vereran’s Day the office will be closed on Monday, November 12th. In the event of an emergency or if you need assistance, please call Patrick Russell at 850-830-0714.

Update May 1, 2018: The County BCC continues to work to get East Pass dredged and the sand placed on the West Destin Beaches. It now looks like a suitable dredge is available early September. HIIA continues to work with the BCC and the City and will keep you posted.
Update on Holiday Isle Beach repair and dredging of East Pass: We had reported earlier the good news that the County BCC had approved budgeting for dredging East Pass and placing the sand on the much needed beaches adjacent to the East Jetty. This project was to “piggy back” on the Norriego Point Project (NPP). We have just been told that the contractor for the NPP is not going to be able to stay long enough to do the East Pass dredge project. Due to concerns of the capability of the dredge to work efficiently in Gulf and other priorities, the Corps of Engineers will be moving the dredge to an emergency situation in Apalachicola as soon as the NPP is completed.
HIIA as well as several of the Condo managers attended the 4/3 BCC meeting and requested continued support. The BCC is as disappointed as we are and are committed to getting the Pass dredged and sand placed on Holiday Isle. This is a very dynamic situation with the County. Led by our Commissioner Kelly Windes, every effort is being made to find a solution and get this project back on track. We will continue to stay abreast of this situation and keep you informed.

Late HOA payments may soon affect credit scores
Sperlonga, a credit data aggregator, is the first company to provide homeowner association (HOA) payment and account status data to Equifax, which is one of the three major credit-reporting agencies. A full rollout of the new HOA reporting to Equifax will go live in October.
Homeowner associations and property management companies collect about $70 billion in HOA payments yearly among at least 333,000 community associations, according to the Community Association Institute.
“Until now, HOA payments have gone largely unreported to the national credit-reporting agencies,” says Matt Martin, chairman and founder of Sperlonga. “Our service will help elevate association payments to the same level of importance as the consumer’s other financial obligations like residential mortgages, auto loans and credit card payments. Property owners that pay HOA fees on time should begin to see the similar impact [on] their credit reports as they would with other payment obligations traditionally found in a credit report.”
Property owners who are late or delinquent on HOA payments will likely see a negative effect on their credit score, just as if they had missed a mortgage payment.
“Introducing new sources of data beyond what has traditionally been found on credit files can provide additional insight into a consumer’s financial behavior and help deliver expanded credit access,” says Mike Gardner, senior vice president at Equifax.
