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 and violate the Charter that defines them? If Commission will not reply or answer the Public, who is there to hold them accountable especially when they can’t follow the rules themselves.
