KEY LARGO — The Key Largo Fire Rescue & Emergency Medical Services board has approved sending Commissioner George Mirabella to the Florida Association of Special Districts Annual Conference, “Wrangling Special Purpose Governments’ Biggest Issues,” scheduled June 10 in Fort Myers.

Listed as the only item on a short agenda, the item was favored 2-1, the majority vote which was needed to pass. Mirabella recused himself from voting while Commissioner Danny Powers opposed spending $1,703.48 for the four-day conference, lodging, mileage, tolls and meals. Commissioner Bob Thomas did not attend the meeting.

The Florida Association of Special Districts mission is to unify and strengthen special purpose government districts through education, the exchange of ideas and active involvement in the legislative process.
