The article presents information related to the setting up of a police station in Sarasota, Florida. The city was supposed to have a referendum last March to approve issuing $20 million or so in bonds for building a new police station. But other things, such as finding an appropriate site downtown got in the way. And when they couldn't find a site, nobody in city government wanted the embarrassment of moving the police station out to the edge of town when the point of the abandonment of the police station was part of the city/county deal to keep county government downtown.
