EXEMPT: Scott's Private Beach Bill Does Not Apply to St. Johns County
St. Augustine - There's been a lot of talk recently about Governor Scott's bill that may give beachfront residents the ability to restrict access to the public. This new bill affects almost all of Florida... Except for St. Johns County.
Counties with ordinances protecting public beach access, passed before 2016 are exempt from Scott's new rules, and thanks to the 2007 Beach Code, St. Johns County does not apply regarding our local beaches.
We can all breathe easy again!
