BEST REASON NOT TO HATE A CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER: Rick Doyle, Belleair

BEST REASON NOT TO HATE A CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER

Look, the codes guy who tells you it’s time to think about cutting the grass isn’t exactly invited to a lot of neighborhood cookouts, but Rick Doyle might just get a few invites after Irma. He spent the whole of the storm coordinating getting Publix-donated food and water to people, making sure the deputies in Belleair had safe shelter overnight and getting businesses what they needed (like propane) to help residents. That isn’t all he did, but we’re betting he has a few pies waiting for him at Christmastime. —Cathy Salustri
