Scott’s vetoes impact county

-A A +A

While some Gadsden projects sliced from budget, others accepted

By Alice Du Pont

Gov. Rick Scott used the power of his veto pen Monday to put the skids to three Gadsden County projects which totaled $750,000.

The most expensive item to get the ax was the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office request for a community and recreation enter for $400,000. Sheriff Morris Young said he needed the funds to purchase a former tomato warehouse off Bostick Road and begin transforming it into a multi-purpose family center geared toward recreation and education for youth.
