+ Police get a wheel deal from anonymous citizen
An anonymous citizen recently contacted the town with an offer to buy the Longboat Key Police Department a new bicycle.
Police sometimes patrol the town on bicycles, and the resident had recently chatted with an officer on a bike.
He contacted Town Manager Dave Bullock with his offer to purchase a new one. The town accepted the offer, purchased the bike and received reimbursement from the citizen.
“We are grateful for his interest and generosity,” Bullock wrote in an email to the Longboat Key Town Commission.
