Okaloosa County wants to help Eglin AFB keep businesses from operating on their land

OKALOOSA COUNTY  --  Okaloosa County leaders want to help the Air Force keep businesses from operating on Eglin's land near the Destin bridge.
Last week, the Timberview Helicopter Company was issued a trespassing citation for operating just offshore of Eglin's land.
The county is now addressing the jurisdiction of that area.
Eglin's property is regulated by the federal government, and the submerged land offshore is regulated by the state.
So the county has requested an agreement with Eglin that would allow them to assist in removing businesses from the area.
