Putting the brakes on

After receiving bad news from an Inspector General’s audit reflecting deficiencies in management of the Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization, the board of directors is considering outsourcing staff duties. Commissioner Tim Sullivan says the lack of changes for more than 10 years is reflected in this recommendation. These changes would result in five staff members losing their jobs, but T. J. Fish, executive director, is a contract employee and would remain at the helm.
