FWB Approves New Field Office Complex

At a Special Meeting on June 27, 2018, the Fort Walton Beach City Council unanimously approved the construction and consolidation of a new Field Office Complex to be located on Hollywood Boulevard NW where Jet Stadium is currently located.

Then, on July 10, 2018, City Council adopted Resolution 2018-8, allowing the Finance Department to move forward with securing funding for the construction of the Complex.

The Field Office Complex will be the new home of the Utility Services Department (Utility Services Administration, Engineering, GIS, Water Distribution, Water Operations, Sewer Construction, Sewer Collections, Streets, & Stormwater), Facilities Maintenance, Fleet Maintenance, Solid Waste and Recycling, and the City Warehouse. The construction addresses needed safety and efficiency updates and allows for the consolidation of multiple divisions that are currently housed in separate locations.

Construction will begin this summer, with completion projected for October 2019.
