TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Board members on Wednesday faced calls for better firefighter equipment, lessons on public records requests and bond ratings.

VERBATIM: The meeting dealt with the kind of affairs any other municipal government handles. But the five board members appointed by DeSantis hinted at future actions they may take. They include prohibiting COVID-19 restrictions at Disney World and eliminating two cities that were created when the Florida Legislature in 1967 approved the theme park resort’s self-governance.
