Walton County TDC Beach Operations Department
924 South County Hwy 83
Santa Rosa Beach, FL  32459
(850) 267-4578

Deliveries are received between 8am and 3:30pm, Monday - Friday.

The Beach Operations Department is comprised of two divisions: Beach Maintenance and Beach Code Enforcement. Code Enforcement monitors the beaches to enforce local beach related ordinances such as the Leave No Trace ordinance, sea turtle ordinances, and others.

Code Enforcement:

The Code Enforcement staff has completed the post-season review and is prepared to offer possible code revisions to the BCC for consideration later this year. A combined Beach Management Committee, Destination Improvement Committee and the two beach vending workshops provided valuable insight and direction to help make the beaches of South Walton a better place for both locals and visitors alike moving into next year.

The board ultimately voted to make minor updates to the code for the 2020 season. To see the updates, please click here.

Managed Vendor Program:

Pre-Season Meeting Update

Pre-season meetings have been scheduled for our beach vendor program in the month of January. On Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 9 a.m., staff plans to host the Pre-Season Vendor meeting for all participating and potential beach vendors in South Walton. On Thursday, Jan. 16 at 5 p.m., there will be a Pre-Season Vendor meeting, specifically for public comment. Both meetings are open to the public and are encouraged to attend.

Location Updates for Managed Vendor Program

At the Jan. 14 BCC meeting, TDC staff plans to present recommendations for future locations for the 2020 Managed Vendor Program. Currently, the program exists within some of South Walton’s public access points, including Ed Walline RBA, Inlet Beach, RBA and Grayton Beach RBA. The board will review and decide on future locations for the program, based off of feedback from community members, partners and staff.
