ENGLEWOOD, Fla. — The Englewood Area Fire Control board voted Wednesday to deny Fire Commissioner Robert Bacon's request to reimburse him more than $2,400 in attorney's fees he incurred after being accused of inappropriate actions during contract negations between the district and the firefighters' union.
In a letter sent to commissioners in April by the union's attorney, James Brantley, Bacon was accused of inappropriately discussing contract negotiations with firefighters. The board, including Bacon, had given Fire Chief Brian Gorski sole authority to negotiate on behalf of the district.
