PANAMA CITY — One of the two administrative positions at the Panama City Downtown Improvement Board (DIB) is now vacant after the organization cut ties with Main Street Coordinator Valerie Woods, who held the position for less than a year.
Main Street, a statewide program administered by the Florida Department of State, is overseen by the DIB, which is funded by a special property tax levied by the city. DIB Director John Carbullido did not offer a reason for Woods’s removal, but confirmed t the organization is going through a transition and the position is now open.
“We were going through a transition by way of staffing,” said Carbullido, who took the reins of the DIB about three months ago. “As far as our process goes, it is a personnel issue.”
