LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The temporary suspension of Lee County's Medstar program was legal. The county attorney made that ruling Monday morning.
The attorney says County Manager Karen Hawes had the authority to suspend the medical flight program without a vote from commissioners.
The attorney also says Hawes did not violate state laws by briefing commissioners on the problems at Medstar.
The county shutdown the program on August 21. Over the weekend, the Deputy Public Safety Director Kim Dickerson resigned. Her boss, John Wilson, retired last week.
