SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT

RESOLUTION NO. 599

ESTABLISHING COORDINATION WITH THE
ST. JOHNS WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
CONCERNING THE TRANSFER OF THE OKLAWAHA RIVER BASIN



WHEREAS, THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT, hereinafter

called Southwest District, was created under Florida Statutes, Chapter 61-691,

as amended, Laws of Florida, Acts of 1961; and

WHEREAS, THE OKLAWAHA RIVER BASIN, hereinafter called Basin, was consti-

tuted in and part of the Southwest District under Florida Statutes 61-691, as

amended, Laws of Florida, Acts of 1961; and

WHEREAS, Chapter 373, Florida Statutes, also known as the Water Resources

Act of 1972, as amended, provides for the area within the Basin to be trans-

ferred to and become a part of the St. Johns Water Management District, herein-

after called St. Johns District, on July 1, 1975; and

WHEREAS, the Southwest District has publicly stated the constitutional,

operational and financial problems that should be resolved prior to the transfer

of the area within the Basin and has recommended delaying the transfer until

these problems are more fully resolved; and

WHEREAS, the Southwest District filed suit against Hernando County seeking

a declaratory judgement that the transfer of territory will not terminate the

status and existence of the Southwest District as a special district vested

with continued ad valorem taxing power on the date the 1968 Florida Constitu-

tion became effective, which judgement has been denied by the Circuit Court of

the Fifth Judicial Circuit in Hernando County and is being appealed;'and

WHEREAS, the Southwest District believes that the ad valorem tax issue

and other funding and contractual matters should be fully resolved prior to

such transfer but desires to keep the staff and Governing Board of the St.

Johns District advised of all activities and to afford the St. Johns District

an opportunity to participate in all matters affecting the Basin;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE GOVERNING BOARD OF THE SOUTHWEST

FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT as follows:

1. The staff of Southwest District is directed to keep the St. Johns

District advised of all matters relating to the Oklawaha Basin by sending








copies of all notices, agendas and supporting documents relating thereto

to the Executive Director, to the Chairman, and to such other St. Johns

District Governing Board Members as so request such materials.

2. The St. Johns District is hereby respectfully requested to submit

suggestions and recommendations and to participate in all meetings, work-

shops and other activities relating to all matters affecting the Oklawaha

Basin.

3. The St. Johns District is invited and requested to assign a member

of its staff to serve as coordinator, monitor and spokesman on matters

affecting the Oklawaha Basin and to occupy office space furnished by South-

west District at its headquarters in Brooksville, Florida, to facilitate

participation in all matters affecting the Oklawaha Basin.

4. The staff of Southwest District is directed to assist the St. Johns

District in fully understanding the long-range plans and the operating and

maintenance procedures so it will be prepared to assume full responsibility

therefore without interruption or undue cost when the transfer can be made.

5. Copies of this resolution shall be forwarded to each member of the

Governing Board of St. Johns District, to the Executive Director, and to the

Department of Natural Resources.

PASSED and ADOPTED this 14th day of May 1975 by the Governing Board of
