   During his tenure, the man-
ager is most proud of the county’s
efforts to pave a number of dirt
roads like Reid Stafford and Con-
federate Drive.
   “I think it’s close to 16 miles
of roads in two years,” said Mr.
   Other accomplishments he
oversaw include securing a traf-
fic variance on I-10 that effec-
tively lowered the up-front de-
velopment costs for job-creating
projects like two industrial parks
being planned at either end of the
county. Also of note, he said, is
the county’s first utility franchise
agreement approved last year, a
storm water master plan and a
thoroughfare master plan.
   “We built the foundation for
activities that will inevitably oc-
cur,” he said, alluding to future
growth as Jacksonville and the
region expands in coming de-
   There were also disappoint-
ments, namely the failed Cedar
Creek mixed-use development.
   “We worked so long and hard
on that, to see it just fall apart,”
Mr. Cone said.
   Challenges still lay ahead, too.
   Mr. Cone hopes to remain long
enough to see timber harvested
from St. Mary’s Shoals Park to
help fund future maintenance of
the county’s newest recreation
venue. Next year’s budget and a
feasibility study for renovating
the old jail are also important
tasks he wants to finish before
   “[The budget] was tight last
year, but we were able to keep the
millage rate down,” he said, add-
ing that the rate has declined dur-
ing his time with Baker County.
   Mr. Cone, an avid boater and
fisherman, intends to spend
retirement in St. Johns County
with his wife.
   “Each week will be like six Sat-
urdays and a Sunday,” he said.
