In an meeting earlier this month the Citrus County Commission wasn’t concerned that it ignored its own requirement that any contracts be put out for bid. Apparently the Commissioners could not think of ways to come up with ways to bring more money into the county so they decided, along with the County Attorney Richard Wesch and County Administrator Brad Thorpe to use the  the firm – Nabors, Giblin & Nickerson, Public Accountants – who had previously done work with for the county and "knew the county inside and out." The contract will seek to have the firm come up with ideas for alternative sources of income for the county. “It’s the age old adage, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know”, that counts in Citrus County.Ed
