Residents, County Officials Vent Frustrations at Bradford County Delegation Meeting
Bradford County residents -- including the sheriff, the supervisor of elections, and the school superintendent -- had the chance to vent today at the annual Bradford County Legislative Delegation public hearing.
Among issues discussed were concerns over redistricting and the growing power of police unions.
Bradford County School Superintendent, Beth Moore, said that for two years she had been battling the city of Starke over utility rates. She said the schools in Starke pay a higher rate than schools outside of city limits.
No city commissioners were at the meeting to respond, much to the chagrin of State Rep. Charles Van Zant, who chaired the delegation.
The delegation passed a resolution to have the city of Starke audited for the past three years.
Van Zant said there have been previous efforts to audit the city, but they have failed.
