RESOLUTION


WHEREAS, agriculture has been the mainstay of the economic

environment of the Upper St. Johns River area, and

WHEREAS, large sums of money have been collected through ad

valorem taxes from the Upper St. Johns area which is presently a part

of the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District, and

WHEREAS, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has planned and

worked for over 20 years on a very important and far reaching project of

the Upper St. Johns River, and

WHEREAS, to transfer Brevard, Indian River and parts of

Osceola and Orange Counties to the St. Johns River Water Management

District as is scheduled by law on July 1, 1975, would cause delay and

loss of the above mentioned monies, and

WHEREAS, the St. Johns River Water Management District is a

new state agency and not yet fiscally or financially able to handle this

important project or administer its duties at this time,

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED by the Board of Directors of Florida

Citrus Mutual, duly assembled at their regular meeting this llth day of

December, 1974, that the Department of Natural Resources, the St. Johns

River Water Management District and the Central and Southern Florida Flood

Control District propose an amendment to the Water Resources Act of 19701,

that would allow these counties to remain in the Central and Southern Florida

Flood Control District until either the locally sponsored project in the Upper

St. Johns Basin is completed and functional or until the ad valorem taxing

authority question is cleared and all fiscal and legal questions in regard to

the before mentioned project and the St. Johns River Water Management

District are cleared.
