Welcome to the Let’s Talk podcast, where we keep Northwest Floridians connected with local leaders. In this week’s episode, we sit down with the city of Fort Walton Beach to discuss upcoming events and projects. I’m Skyler Black, and joining me is Bobby Durell. Our first guest is Wendy Riggs, the recreation coordinator with the city of Fort Walton Beach.
Wendy shares exciting news about the upcoming Mardi Gras parade, a popular event in the city. Here are some highlights from the conversation:
In addition to the Mardi Gras parade, Wendy also discusses the introduction of a teen glow night out for middle school and high school students. This event will offer free memberships to the recreation center and a fun, festive night for teens.
Furthermore, the city is currently accepting registrations for soccer, catering to all age groups from 3 to adults. Wendy highlights the importance of sponsors and volunteer coaches in making these events and programs successful.
The conversation then shifts to Daniel Payne, the director of public works for the city of Fort Walton Beach. Daniel provides updates on ongoing projects, including the construction at the landing and the impact of the bridge project on the downtown area.
He also emphasizes the issue of flushable wipes in the sewer system, urging residents to avoid flushing wipes as they can cause significant clogs and maintenance problems.
As the podcast ends, the hosts express their appreciation for the valuable insights shared by the city representatives and highlight the importance of staying informed about local events and projects.
