OVERHEARD ON THE WEB: Strip Club Settlement Edition

Published: Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at 04:14 PM.

With news that the city of Destin and representatives from the proposed strip club along coming to a settlement agreement to keep the club out of the city, The Log’s Facebook page saw plenty of chatter. The city agreed to pay representatives $1,750,000, plus $400,000 for the property. Here’s a little bit of what people had to say.

Josh McLean: What stops the next strip joint to purchase a piece of land and do the same thing? Quite the racket!

Brandi Barks Becquer: I feel like I'm going to try and open a strip club there for the money payout. Maybe I'll donate my payoff to the firefighters that the city can't afford...

Holly Shaw: Coming to a bus stop near you guys in Destin: A mobile strip club!!! Hop on our party bus and enjoy the ride. Hell, I'll make it a BYOB RV, $20 cover $20 dances. 15% of proceeds will benefit the local fire department!

Laurie Ledbetter Terry: I am all for it bc I didn't want a strip club right down the street from my house! Way to go Destin!

Sandi Farr: Seems like a waste. Wasn't the owner of this property killed outside his strip club in ATL?? Destin still has to pony up to stop this BS from happening? Where is the money going? Destin is a small town and can't afford to lose this kind of money.

Dale K. Robinson: Stupid waste of money. The residents objecting should have pooled their money to buy out the strip club. My guess? There will be a strip club somewhere in Destin in the end.
