BOUQUETS & BRICKBATS

Brickbats to JEA

Posted

Brickbats to JEA for allowing a police officer to live in a luxury riverfront home rent-free. JEA bought the house in 2011 for $590,000, because it was in the path of a proposed water pipeline, but JEA built the pipeline in another location. According to The Florida Times-Union, JEA has allowed the police lieutenant, who makes $86,000 a year, to live in the house for the last two years. The officer doesn't pay for electricity or water. Gerri Boyce, a JEA spokesperson, said the officer provides security to the house and it's a good deal for JEA.
