Fact finding: VT MAE Briefing Book

A briefing book was given to the Pensacola City Council and Escambia Board of County Commissioners. However, the briefing book was not made available to the public.

The VT MAE Briefing Book is not available on the city’s Transparent Pensacola page or the VT MAE project page.
