PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) – The Panama City Beach council meeting on Thursday night was a special one for two members of the council as it was their last.

Thomas says he’s enjoyed serving the people of Panama City Beach and he’s proud of what this council has accomplished over the last few years.

“The city is in good shape, we got a lot of things accomplished.

I’ve enjoyed it very much, I’m ready to go to my family and enjoy that some too.”
