Commissioner Doug Underhill said the joint meeting between the Escambia County Commission and Pensacola City Council will lack fireworks when they meet at 1 p.m. today at City Hall.
The Escambia County chairman said off the agenda is county-city disputes over the Local Option Gas Tax that funds transportation projects and Pensacola Energy using a pool of plumbers to do utility hook ups and install water heaters.
“My goal really is to exercise the concept of cooperation,” Underhill said. “I am confident people will see their elected officials working together and taking their jobs seriously. It’s not the city bullying us at all. The goal is to focus on all the things we can agree on.”
One of the 14 issues on the joint meeting agenda that Underhill wants to focus on is the Restore priorities for the Pensacola area.
“That’s critical,” Underhill said.
