Wauchula – Corruption Capital of Florida

Wauchula – Corruption Capital of Florida

Cities and Counties like any other form of Government create Policies and Procedures for internal purposes and ordinances and codes for the community. Let’s say an employee of the City is violating a policy written by the City. The employee is reprimanded or at times even terminated. But what if the person violating these Policies and Procedures is one of the ones that actually write them? Who is responsible for taking action and holding that person accountable? Normally that could be the City or County Commission. But what if they ignore the public and allow certain City employee’s to continue violating policy, procedures, and contracts? If Commission will not reply or answer the Public, who is there to hold them accountable. Recent experience, No One. Not even the State Attorney’s office. It’s always the same ole thing, “You need to take it up with your Commission”. Essentially what they are saying is “We know there’s a drug problem, but you have to take it up with the dealer”  


CITY: Serious issues
