FL: County to replace Okee-Tantie bandshell

OKEECHOBEE, Fla. — Okeechobee County Commissioners addressed some issues involving the Okee-Tantie recreation area at their Feb. 6 meeting.

The county recently signed a contract with Bass Pro to develop Okee-Tantie as a fishing resort. Because the contract is for the county to sell the campground to Bass Pro, the county must address items that were purchased for Okee-Tantie with grant funding from the state.

Some items, such as picnic tables, have already been moved to other county parks. The band shell, built with a grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, will have to be dealt with. A major expense for the bandshell was pouring concrete for the base.

    I think after so many years you can do whatever you want with it. I know we had some units bought with grant money and had to use it strictly for training. After so many years we were able to use them for whatever we wanted.
