Next. Bye, bye police department. They need another fountain or a piece of property that isn't worth what they paid for it.

The fountains do not come from the general fund and have no relation to the fire dept in how it's being funded. Get the facts first...

What happens when Fire,Police,Animal services,etc,are eliminated and moved or contracted out,we will have a hollow shell of a City.
What need is the 17-92 boardwalk around the lake? When your house is on fire, and the neighbors pit bulls are jumping your fence.
If we are a true Neighborhood we should protect our Firefighter,Police and Emergency personnel.
They are Priority over Boardwalks,trees and bridges,and festivals.
If you do not think that, then when you have an emergency or fire, better have patience and a long hose.

Where did the money come from to move the fountain after it was placed wrong?

A lot since she got rid of a lot of departments and employees. Over 120,000. Not a problem to call and get that figure.

Every time you cross a crack in the pavement you enter a new municipality with it's own mayor, police, fire dept, etc. What needless duplication for so many small provinces like Longwood, Casselberry, Winter Springs, Oviedo and Sanford! Consolidate the the entire mess, give us back our wasted tax dollars and move on.
