Briefs: Pasco County attorney sides with sheriff on union dispute


County attorney sides with sheriff

The Pasco County Attorney's Office filed court documents this week siding with Sheriff Bob White over how impasse issues with the deputies union should be resolved.

The Fraternal Order of Police filed suit last month asserting that the County Commission should be the final word in such disputes.

In a motion filed Wednesday, Assistant County Attorney Anthony Salzano wrote that the union's suit should be dismissed and agreed with White, who contends he has final authority. White held a hearing recently — which the union didn't attend — to resolve discipline issues that have kept a labor contract from being signed.

He ruled in favor of his own agency.


Deputies: Mom left kid home

A 23-year-old woman was arrested Tuesday and charged with child neglect after Pasco deputies said she left her 3-year-old daughter home alone.

Delilah Perez told deputies she left her daughter at their Dade City home at 4 p.m. to pay a bill in Zephyrhills, according to the report. The girl's sister, 6, and uncle, 10, were expected home about 4:05 p.m., deputies said Perez told them.

Perez spent Tuesday night at the Land O'Lakes jail and was released Wednesday on $5,000 bail.
