9 Local Support “Panacea is a strong community and one of Wakulla's best kept secrets. Incorporating is an exciting option for the community, and the logical next step. As a city, Panacea will be able to attract new business opportunities, grow intelligently, and chart their own course into the future.” – Alan Brock “By becoming incorporated Panacea will be in control of it’s own destiny” – Randall Taylor “Incorporation has well served St. Marks and Panacea will likewise benefit from being incorporated” – Zoe Mansfield, St. Marks City Manager. “I am so proud of Panacea for taking this action to become a City” – Dr. Gene Charbonneau, former Panacea physician We look forward to a continued productive and positive relationship with our Wakulla County partners.
