    The Top cop won’t have to negotiate his budget, It was settled for 4 years.

    The people in D5 Do not need to have additional property MSBU on their bill for fire protection.

    The people did not vote for extra homestead exemption so use what you have!!

    Cut out entertainment (Bay Center) and land holdings and yes maybe even the ST is too costly, especially since DeSantis vetoed 1.5M

    Maybe be proactive and stop all the lawsuit non sense. If five people in EMS lacked certification how hard would it have been to quietly get them up to speed? minus the drama?

    Budget Meetings, no lack of drama and hand-wringing for the next few months.
    Wonder what the Top Cop will threaten to hold back or discontinue if he doesn’t get his way?
