In Gulf Stream, Mayor Scott Morgan gave a heartfelt thank-you to police officers "for selflessly staying in this town, staying here in the Police Department, camped out in this commission meeting room and in offices throughout Town Hall, at a time when it appeared to be a very serious, destructive storm on its way."
Morgan, opening a rescheduled Town Commission meeting Sept. 18 after nearly a week without electricity, said the officers' sacrifices were something he and all town residents "are very, very grateful for."
Town Manager Greg Dunham, who also stayed at Town Hall, agreed. "They were really working beyond what most people would ask of them, and they did it without any complaints," Dunham said.
