(Oct. 20, 2009) — The Walton County Board denied the project based on an un-adopted standard made up by Walton County after receiving public opposition to the project.

If successful, the county, and its taxpayers, will have to pay Jolly Bay`s damages and attorneys` fees, which are well in excess of the county`s $1 million in insurance coverage.
