Customary Use Group Offering Affidavits

Walton County, Fla. - The battle on the beach dragging on in South Walton and a local group is hoping to get more people involved. 

The group has created pop up notary stations so that residents can submit affidavits, photographs, and documentation about how they have used the beaches for decades. 

The group, Florida Beaches For All, says the affidavits must be submitted in the next 10 days. 

"This Labor day weekend; Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Up and down 30a, Santa Rosa Beach, Miramar Beach, Sandestin, over to Inlet beach we will have a notary there," said Tonia Schatzel, chairman for Florida Beaches for All. "That is the most difficult part of an affidavit, is that it has to be notarized but, there are literally hundreds of free notaries along 30a right now, willing to sign anyone'ses affidavit."

The group has collected 2,300 affidavits so far. They hope to get at least 10,000.
