Flagler Beach (FL) Fire Department’s Plan to Buy Fire Apparatus Draws Criticism

Opposition had already built considerably on social media and in emails to commissioners for Flagler Beach considering a purchase of a fire truck, reports FlaglerLive.com.

The city clerk by early this week had received 15 pages of emails almost entirely in opposition, asking for their emails to be read at Thursday’s meeting. Some of the emails are caustic and question the city’s motives. As a whole, the emails suggest the city manager and the fire chief may be underestimating the political dimensions of the proposal’s timing in the context of the coronavirus emergency, and may be a cautionary marker to local governments exploring capital improvements.
