County and City Pier to begin reconstruction

About a year ago, talks began about the reconstruction of the City Pier at Pier Park. Shortly after, the Bay County and Panama City Beach decided that it would be more cost efficient to partner and rebuild both the County Pier and the City Pier at the same time using the same design, having twin piers. It is estimated that by combining efforts $100,000 to $500,000 is being saved. Each pier is expected to cost around $10 million.

This week, the Bay County Commissioners awarded the contract for construction to Shore Line Foundation for $7.6 million. The City Pier should be done in about 12 months with the County Pier being right behind it about 6 months.
