Times Staff Writer
Participating members of the West Coast Regional Water .
Supply Authority may be forced, to look outside the Tampa
Bay area and even nationally for a director because several
local water experts have said they don't want the job.
Bob Curry, Hillsborough County commission chairman,
told The Times today the choice of director is now "wide
open" and he is in favor of advertising nationally for some-
one to fill the position.
Tampa water resources director Dale Twvachtwmann
said last week he didn't want the job as director, although
city officials have tapped him to be their representative on
the five-man executive board.
The authority was created to supply Tampa Bay coun-
ties and municipalities with drinking water under an agree-
ment among Hillsborough, Pinellas and pasco counties and
. the cities of Tampa and St. Petersburg. It was approved yes-
terday by the governor and cabinet.
Pinellas County water resources director Pickens Tal-
ley, contacted by The Times today, reaffirmed his previous
(position of rejecting the director's chair on the authority with
just one word: "'Nope." -
S He said he still has a job to complete with the county,
and has no intention of quitting for the director's position.
STampa attorney Jake Varn, representing Pasco County
in water matters, also repeated an earlier expression that he
didn't want the job and would continue his work as an at-
"torney. He said the authority members may have to go out-
side the area in order to find a director.
But Curry told The Times the authority may have trouble
recruiting a director at the salary the authority previously
had budgeted. He said the $25,000.for the director might not
be high enough to .attract a 'good" director and that figure
might have to be raised.
In a related matter, Pinellas County officials yesterday
chose commission chairman Charles Rainey to be their rep-
resentative on the authority. -
S Curry hinted today he might ask other commissioners to
consider nominating a representative at today's commission
meeting. He said he would like to serve on the board, and
has mentioned that to some of his colleagues.
"But he said the commission may vote to delay the
matter until the new commission is seated Nov. 19.
Officials from Pasco County.and St. Petersburg could not
be contacted today for names of their representatives.
