Re: Southwest Florida Water Management District

Dear General:

We represent Southwest Florida Water Management District
and need your opinion for guidance in connection with the changes
of Water Management District boundaries.

At 11:59 pm., on December 31, 1976 a substantial portion of
Southwest Florida Water Management District (Southwest) will be
transferred to, and become part of, the St. Johns River Water
Management District (St. Johns.) All but a very small part of
the portion to be transferred constitutes the Oklawaha River Basin
of Southwest and will be formed into the Oklawaha Basin of St. Johns
upon its transfer. 373.0693(8), F.S., as Am. by Ch. 76-243, Laws of
Florida.

Current Basin Board members become members of the Governing
Board 9f the newly formed Basin at the time of transfer. Ibid.

On or about January 1, 1977 Southwest will transfer funds to
St. Johns. These funds will consist of all unexpended Basin funds
and an equitable share of all unencumbered District funds. These
moneys are raised by the levy of ad valorem taxes.

Query: What restraints are imposed on the use by St. Johns
River Water Management District of moneys transferred
to it by the Southwest Florida Water Management District
at the time of the change of the boundaries of the two
districts pursuant to 373.069(3), F.S., as amended by
section 1 of Chapter 76-243, Laws of Florida?
