As of this week, Leon County’s Consolidated Dispatch Agency is fully staffed. That’s just one of the changes Dee Crumpler has made in his six months as the troubled agency’s interim director.

The Florida Department of Health has issued a mosquito-borne illness alert for Leon County. Health officials have confirmed a second case of the West Nile Virus—this time, in a homeless man.

“Basically, we have an individual, 60-years-old who traveled between Leon County and Wakulla County, and at the time, was homeless and sleeping outside, who came down, and was diagnosed with West Nile Virus," said Leon County Health Department Administrator Homer Rice.

"He was hospitalized at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare and is currently recovering.”
