Town reschedules impasse hearing

The Longboat Key Town Commission has agreed to schedule an impasse hearing 9 a.m. Wednesday, March 2, at Town Hall.

The meeting was previously scheduled for Friday, Jan. 21, with the town’s firefighter union.

The decision was made after firefighter paramedic and union vice president Brandon Desch told town officials he was unable to attend the February hearing because he would be on vacation. The commission agreed to postpone the hearing even though it wasn’t required to do so.

Now that impasse has been declared and a special magistrate made its recommendations, the commission will be called upon at the impasse hearing to render decisions that cannot be made between St. Denis and the union.
