Samantha had this time say: “I came to know Jason Randell during the time that the City was dissatisfied with out previous golf course management company. He is indicative of so many of our employees, who hold vast experience and degrees from careers prior to joining our City.

Jason exemplifies our team values and dedication to public service, as well as holding experience in performance management which will be crucial as our utilities continue to expand with the growth in south Santa Rosa County.

City of Gulf Breeze Septic Tank Elimination Program (STEP)

Septic systems, while effective in the proper conditions, do not offer the best environmental solution for domestic waste treatment in many conditions.  Poor soils, aging systems, increased use and development density changes can cause existing septic systems to malfunction.   Additionally, poorly draining soils, shallow groundwater or flood prone areas can cause septic systems to be unusable during certain times of the year.  Any existing residence with a septic system is eligible for this program.  Existing platted, vacant residential lots may also be considered.   Undeveloped property larger than 1 acre and commercial facilities are not eligible.  Priority of available city funding will be according to need and environmental benefit.
