Panama City, FL –
CALLAWAY, Fla. (WMBB) – Bay County residents continue to talk about the intersection of Bob Little Road and Cherry Street through emails, phone calls and Facebook.
There was no comment from the audience on the hot topic at Tuesday night’s Callaway commission meeting.
However, City Manager Eddie Cook said he was aware of the talks around town.
“I know there are a lot of conversations going on… we haven’t spoken to the other cities yet,” Cook said. “I’m sure we’ll be having this conversation before long.”
He said he had only received one direct phone call from a Springfield resident about the intersection, but no one else had approached him about it.
Cook said the Town of Callaway and Bay County were sticking to their recommendation to keep the stop signs.
“I don’t think the county is interested in trying to put the lights back on the same poles since they’ve been hit three times in the past 45 days, I believe,” he said.
Cook said the insurance covers the traffic light. However, to replace the light, he said it needs to be rebuilt better, costing more money than insurance will cover.
“The problem isn’t, ‘Are we fixing the light?’ The problem is, it’s a constant, ongoing problem at this intersection, ”Cook said. “So if we’re going to keep the light, we’re going to have to lift this thing up and put it aside. “
Springfield and Parker city officials want the light replaced … and the sooner the better.
“I know a lot of people are not in the change,” Cook said. “Change can be very difficult… We are always monitoring the situation. “>
