Flagler county executives do an awesome job of pissing away taxpayers dollars. First was the bank on Old Kings, then the old hospital, police station in Bunnell, now the Sears building that is junk. Pissed away millions and took these buildings off the tax rolls. They need to be held accountable, sued and fired. Way to go guys. You make Edith Bunker look like Einstein. Pretty sad.
