SB 1264 HB 1858
By Childers By Culbreath
Subject: Water Management Districts Disbursement of Funds
This bill will allow the governing boards to establish new
procedures for disbursing district funds. The present law
has been interpreted by Southwest Florida Water Management
to prohibit the district from disbursing funds to pay
bills (regardless of size) prior to specific board approval.
Under present practice Southwest Florida Water Management
District checks are prepared but cannot be released until
after the check register is presented to the board at a board
meeting and approved, only then may the checks be released.
This often causes real hardship or inconvenience.
The bill would simply allow the board to establish
procedures for payment of bills at an earlier time, rather than
having to wait until the next board meeting.
This relates only to district funds, is not mandatory,
and includes certain safeguards limiting such disbursements.
