Commissioner Howard Kessler’s was the lone vote against allowing efforts toward the incorporation of Panacea to move forward, which came before the board at their meeting on Dec. 9.
Commissioner Kessler cited subsidization and his wish for a revenue neutral proposal as the reason for his vote.
“I don’t see the county doing the best thing by jumping in,” he said. “I’m not willing to take taxpayers dollars and gamble on this.”
