REQUEST FROM A GROUP OF GROWERS ON THE RIDGE TO THE EFFECT THAT WHAT WAS
-ONCE CALLED NO MAN LAND AND WAS IN NEITHER CENTRAL AND SOUTH FLORIDA OR
SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICTWOULD, AS IT ENTERS THE
SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT ON JANUARY 1, 1977, BE DE-
-4CA-URED TO A AIC)..-F -AUTHORITY WHICH SOUTHWEST HAS FOR CREATING BASIN BOARDS WITHIN THE DISTRICT.

.I AM ATTACHING A COPY OF A MAP WHICH SHOWS THE BOUNDARY LINE THAT MUTUAL
WOULD PREFER AS THE DELINEATION BETWEEN THE PEACE RIVER BASIN AND THE RIDGE
BASIN. THIS LINE DIFFERS SLIGHTLY FROM THAT CURRENTLY IN EFFECT. AT SOME
TIME WITHIN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WE WILL FORWARD TO YOU THE LEGAL DESCRIPTION
-DEFINING THIS BOUNDARY AND SHOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PROPOSED BOUNDARY
"AND THAT CURRENTLY FORMING THE EAST LINE OF THE PEACE RIVER BASIN.

I WOULD APPRECIATE DIRECTION FROM YQU AS TO HOW THIS REQUEST SHOULD BE HANDLED.
DO WE HAVE TO REQUEST A PUBLIC HEARING ON THE MATTER OR IS THIS HANDLED BY YOUR
SDISTRICTiS BOARD? MUTUAL WILL BE PREPARED TO PRESENT EVIDENCE SUPPORTING THE
POSITION TAKEN BY THESE CITRUS GROWERS AND WE ANTICIPATE SUPPORT FROM THE
; MUNICIPALITIES LOCATED WITHIN THE PROPOSED BASIN.

DR. JIM GRIFFITHS WILL BE HANDLING THE DETAILS OF THESE ACTIVITIES FOR MUTUAL.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTION, I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR DIRECTING THEM TO HIM, BUT
WN E WOULD APPRECIATE ADVICE FROM YOU AS TO HOW BEST TO PROCEED WITH THIS MATTER.
