Mr. Charles Sanders, Director
Department of Interior Resources f :,r ctrc-
Room 206, Pennington Building J-ts c ;--;- ----
Tallahassee, Florida 32304
Pursuant to today's telephone conversation, I am
enclosing a copy of the Agreement creating the West Coast Regional
Water Supply Authority (WCRWSA). This Authority is being created
pursuant to Chapter 74-114, Laws of Florida, 1974, and it is
necessary to have the approval of the Governor and Cabinet sitting
as the head of the Department of Natural Resources. Approval by
the Governor and Cabinet is necessary to insure that the Agree-
ment will be in the public interest and complies with the intent
and purposes of the Act. Section 7(1) of the Act also sets forth
certain guidelines to be considered in approving the Agreement.
While you indicated that it is unlikely that this
matter will be placed on the agenda for the October 1 or 2 Cabinet
meeting, I would appreciate your efforts in helping us achieve this.
The five parties have worked very diligently in completing this
Agreement and we would like to have it approved as soon as possible.
Recognizing the necessity of explaining the Agreement, we
would appreciate you setting up a meeting with all of the Cabinet
aides so we can explain the Agreement and answer any questions. -We
"will be available to attend the "Little Cabinet" meeting :if you feel
it is necessary. ,
Should you have any questions, please call.
