ENGLEWOOD, Fla. — The Englewood Fire Control District board could decide Wednesday whether to pay Fire Commissioner Robert Bacon more than $2,400 for attorney's fees.

In September, Bacon presented the fire commission a $485 bill for Englewood attorney R. Earl Warren and a $1,980 bill for Tampa attorney Greg Hearing. He hired the attorneys in response to firefighters union accusations in April that he acted inappropriately during contract negotiations.
