County Council To Vote On Purchase Of 8 New Beach Toll Booths For Nearly $74K

By on November 1, 2017 in WNDB News

Volusia County, FL – The Volusia County Council is expected to vote at its Thursday morning meeting on the purchase of eight new beach toll booths that will cost a total of $73,920.96.

The toll booths will be placed at the seven new beach ramps that are expected to be completed and opened to the public by April 1 of next year. The booths would be purchased from Mardan Fabrication and would take about 10 to 12 weeks to make.

The County directed the opening of the seven additional beach ramps in October of 2017, and County staff recommends the purchase of eight toll booths so that service is not reduced if one of the other booths needs to be repaired. The new ramps will be opened after the toll booths are installed.

The County is also expected to set up a new economic development incentive fund for the $4.5 million in financial incentives approved for development of a new Brown & Brown Insurance Company Headquarters on North Beach St. in Daytona Beach. The County approved the incentive money for Brown & Brown last month. According to County records, the $4.5 million would be transferred from the economic development fund to the new fund that was set up for the purposes of transparency and accountability.
