MEMORANDUM --_ .
Nov. 24,1975
TO : CHAMBER OF COMMERCE EXECUTIVES IN AREAS ENCOMPASSED BY THE
THE CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN FLORIDA FLOOD CONTROL DISTRICT AND
SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGENE NT DISTRICT

FROM : ED KEYS, COMMITTEE MANAGER

There is an item coming up on the March 9th public referendum that should be of keen
interest to your members and citizens of your area.

The question will be whether to amend the state constitution authorizing and limiting
local taxes for water management to not more than one (1) mill. The Board of Governors
of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce recommends vigorous support for this refer-
endum item since residents of the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District
and Southwest Florida Water Management District have everything to gain and nothing
to lose in the outcome of this issue. They will continue to pay up to one (1) mill in
the FCD and Southwest Florida Water Management District even if the referendum fails.
But, if the referendum passes they will be relieved of a form of double taxation, as they
would no longer see the money they contribute to the state general revenue fund Td
to finance the other three water management districts.

Data relative to this referendum is enclosed and additional information can be secured
from those in the FCD through Mr. Don Morgan, Central and Southern Florida Flood
Control District, P. 0. Box V, West Palm Beach, Florida, 33402 (Area 305-686-8800)
or in Southwest Florida Water Management District through Mr. Don Feaster, Southwest
Florida Water Management District, P. O. Box 457, Brooksville, Florida 33512
-(Area 904-/96-7211).

Both agencies have passed resolutions supporting the referendum item.

Obviously, it will be difficult to convince the voters in our areas that by voting to
authorize a tax that they will be reducing the amount they pay in taxes for that purpose.
Therefore, we hope you will thoroughly explore this subject in behalf of your citizens,
agree to support the referendum and appeal to your media for news coverage and
editorial support of this item.
