NAVARRE, Fla. (AP) - Fishermen in the Panhandle town of Navarre Beach weren't happy when a pier manager closed their favorite fishing pier for her daughter's sunset wedding.
Santa Rosa County Commissioner Jim Melvin told the Northwest Florida Daily News on Monday that he had been deluged with calls from fishermen complaining about the Saturday-evening wedding.
The Northwest Florida Daily News reports Melvin said the pier manager did not have the authority to close any section of the pier without prior permission from the commission.
Pier Manager Dorothy Slye said her job is to maximize revenue for the pier and that the wedding brought in $300 for the county.
