Management District

RE: Proposed Legislation Relating to Sale of
Water Management Lands

Dear Don:

Attached find copy of a bill which has been drafted
by DER. Al Bishop tells me this is drafted at the request
of the Governor's office.

This proposed legislation is prompted by the proposal to
sell lands formerly acquired by C & SFFCD in the upper
St. Johns area.

The bill probably would not create a lot of problems for
SWFWMD but on at least one occasion, we have found it to
the advantage of the district to declare a five acre tract
as surplus so we could offer it for sale and dispose of it.

If this bill must be passed, I think it would be appropriate
to amend it to provide that the water management district
could at least recover all costs expended in connection with
the acquisition of the land.

It would probably be helpful if I had a breakdown of total
costs expended in connection with several different represen-
tative parcels to show that far more goes into acquiring land
than simply what is received from the state.

Sincerely,



L. M. Blain
