Such maintenance calls were previously provided by the city at no direct charge to customers. Residents are also likely to see an increase in their property tax millage rate, from the current rate of 5.024 to 5.2813. During a Sept. 10 meeting, the Valparaiso City Commission approved an increase in the basic rate for potable water consumption, up to 3,000 gallons per month, from $13.75 to $14.75. They also increased the basic commercial rate for using up to 3,000 gallons from $14.45 to $15.50 per month. Additional rates for consumption above the 3,000 gallons per month level remain unchanged, ranging from $2.50 for residential consumption between 3,000 and 8,000 gallons and $2.65 for commercial consumption between 3,000 and 7,000 gallons, to maximum additional rates of $3.40 for residential consumption above 25,000 gallons and $3.70 for commercial consumption above that level. Residential rates for sewage disposal increased from $25.10 for the first 4,000 gallons per month to $26.10. The additional rate of $4.50 for each additional 1,000 gallons remains unchanged. Commercial rates also increased by about $1 per month, with the maximum rate, for motels, climbing from $149.64 to $155.61 for the first 4,000 gallons.

basic $30 charge for each service call, to a maximum of $850 for replacement of a two-inch meter. Other service call charges range between those levels, depending on the size and complexity of the work required. At a previous meeting Sept. 6, the city commission gave preliminary approval to a millage rate of 5.2813. This means that property owners will pay a little more than $5.28 for every thousand dollars of appraised, taxable valuation of their property, after homestead exemptions and other discounts. This is a 5 percent increase from the current millage rate of 5.024, and is also above the rolled back millage rate of 4.7316, which would produce the same amount of property tax revenue in the 2018-19 fiscal year as was produced by the current millage rate during FY 2017-18. The planned rate hike comes on top of rising property values in the city, where tax rolls jumped 8 percent in value this year. Also during the Sept. 6 special meeting, the city commission gave preliminary approval to a budget of $8,505,125 for fiscal year 2018-19. The new millage rate and budget remain tentative, and may be changed during the final budget hearing scheduled for 6 p.m. Sept. 20, in the city commission chamber at 465 Valparaiso Parkway. Once approved, the new budget and millage rate will take effect Oct 1. In other business during the Sept. 10 commission meeting, commissioners heard an appeal from Kenney Gates, a Valparaiso resident who recently had two dogs confiscated from him and turned over to the Panhandle Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), the Okaloosa County animal control agency, after the animals got out of his fenced yard, rushed a neighbor, and one of them bit her. The dogs did not have current rabies vaccinations, so the victim of the attack had to undergo a series of rabies shots, according to city officials. Following the attack, the city determined that the dogs were dangerous, and turned them over to PAWS. After hearing from Gates, commissioners stuck by their original decision, and the dogs will remain in the hands of PAWS at least until he shows that the dogs have been vaccinated against rabies, and that he has the means to reliably keep them confined or on a leash. In other business, commissioners heard a presentation from Alison McDowell, a representative of the Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA), an environmental organization affiliated with Northwest Florida State College. McDowell briefed commissioners on recent work done by the CBA near Valparaisos T-pier, a popular fishing spot along the shore between Boggy Bayou and Toms Bayou. McDowell said that volunteers from CBA helped to create a living shoreline, by planting aquatic plants and placing mesh bags filled with cleaned oyster shells along the shoreline. This, she said, is intended to help control erosion, and the cleaned oyster shells will serve as a base to attract live oyster larvae, which will continue to grow the reef by increasing the oyster population in the bayous. The new oysters are also expected to improve water quality in the bayous, as oysters are filter feeders, which remove organic matter from the water in which they live. Commissioners also heard from Brad Evans, a food truck owner who asked them to extend his six-month business permit to Dec. 31. After some discussion, commissioners agreed. ArrestsOn Aug. 31 the Okaloosa Sheriffs office arrested Ivan Thomas Miguel Navarro Jusino Jr., 40, of 867 Solimar Way, Mary Esther, on a charge of grand theft of between $5,000 and $10,000.

Ruckel Middle School didn't let the rain slow them down last Thursday night as they hosted Emerald Coast Middle School at Eagle Stadium. Diego Carrion scored the first touchdown for Ruckel with 27 seconds to go in the first quarter and by halftime, the Rams had built a 24-0 lead. Levi Taylor scored Ruckel's first touchdown of the second half and Chris Thomas-Bisceglie scored the last two Ram touchdowns. Inset from left: The Ruckel Rockettes dance team entertained the crowd before the game. The Rams celebrate with Chris ThomasBisceglie after he scored the first of his two second-half touchdowns.

The Lewis Falcons hosted a cross country meet last Wednesday against runners from Freeport, Meigs, and Seaside.

The top five Lewis finishers were Kaden Levings, Gabe Lerner-Sperrow, Tommy Burgess, Angel Rimerez, and Brenden Cutler. The Lewis girls came in second place, just 10 points behind first place team Meigs. The top five Lewis girls were Celine Ugorji, Ilana Bookhardt, Allie Foles, Taliyah Thomas, and Madison DiCarlo. The girls start their race just outside of the Lewis baseball field. Brenden Cutler gets ready to cross the finish line.

TJ Pope had 153 rushing yards on the night, and quarterback Will Koch contributed three passing touchdowns and scored once on a quarterback keeper. Not to be outshined, Niceville's smothering defense held Holmes County Central to only 52 passing yards, had multiple quarterback sacks, and allowed just the single touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

fourth place prize also includes $150. The YAC members also briefed the city council on their current and planned activities. These include participation in the League of Cities annual video contest, in which the YAC is currently producing a video about what makes our city great. YAC members Martin Bouldo and Katie Lightfoot said that they expect to have the video complete by the end of this month. They also told the city council that they are in the process of seeking a grant from Waste Management, the contractor which handles waste disposal for Niceville as well as Okaloosa County, to help finance a beautification project they are planning to complete during the current school year. In other business during the Sept. 11 city council meeting, Police Chief David Popwell and Fire Chief Tommy Mayville told council members that drug overdoses continue to be a growing problem in Niceville and other surrounding communities. Mayville told council members that his department had made two saves the very day of the council meeting, by using a special drug to revive victims of opioid overdoses, and Popwell said that his department had responded to nine overdoses within the past 48 hours. Mayville later told the Beacon that drug overdoses are a serious problem, and will require the involvement of more organizations than just fire, police, and other first responders. While firefighters and emergency medical services personnel can use drugs to revive some people who have taken overdoses of opioids, he said, this does not solve the underlying problem of addiction, and there is no guarantee that the drugs used to revive victims will always work or that first responders will arrive in time to save someone. In other matters, the council heard from attorney Ryan Garrity, who wants the city to vacate an easement within the Village Oak development. He said the easement was originally established so that a property owner whose property was landlocked within the development could gain access to it via a 10foot-wide easement across someone elses property. In recent years, however, said Garrity, both parcels of property have come under the ownership of a single owner, so that the easement is no longer required. This, he said, means that the easement no longer exists, so that the landowner, his client, should be allowed to fence in the property. Niceville City Attorney Dixie Powell, however, said that once established, the easement became accessible to others, and may not be vacated without formal action on the part of the city council. He also said that Okaloosa Gas, a public utility, has some gas lines within the easement.
