FORT MYERS, Fla.- The FAA will send two inspectors to Fort Myers Tuesday to review incorrect billing by the Medstar medical helicopter program.
Medstar should be paid for dozens of flights, but the money will never make it into Lee County coffers.
The problem is that the pilots and chopper operated without the required certification.
Flights are still grounded and at least one Lee County Commissioner is suggesting disciplinary action.
"When we are $30 million upside-down on our budget, and now we're looking at a loss of 3, 4, or $5 million, the timing could no be worse.
The Lee County Clerk of Court will conduct an audit of the program to determine who knew about the issue, and when they knew about it.
