Re: Ridge Area Transfer from SFWMD to SWFWMD
Your Reference 4-KRA-22, LJ Ridge Area
It has been about two months since our Districts executed the Agreement on
the transfer of responsibility for the Ridge Area, yet there are items to
be finalized pursuant to the provisions of the Transfer Agreement. These
items concern the transfer of title, title information and property interests
to the Southwest District, and the apportionment of the taxes collected in
the affected area.
Since the Districts will be coming involved in additional problems as the
new calendar year commences, it would be beneficial and wise to clear up
these matters without delay. If I can be of help to you in preparing any
documents or contacting personnel at Highlands County, please let me know.
Bob, I would like to get this matter finalized and would appreciate your
assistance and cooperation.
Very truly yours,
JAY T. AHERN
