Mr. Donald R. Feaster, Executive Director
Southwest Florida Water Management District
P. 0. Box 457
Brooksville, Florida 33512

Dear Mr. Feaster:

I have been asked to put together a brief "fact sheet" on the water
management districts and the forthcoming millage referendum in March
1976. In order to be certain I have the information necessary, I
would appreciate your assistance in providing me with a rapid response
to these questions:

1. On the assumption that the referendum passes, have you
assessed your budgetary needs, including the possible
-millage levy you would assess?

If so, please cite your proposed budget and village
levy.

If you have not, please provide an estimation.

Please include the estimated annual tax bill for a
-home assessed at $20,000 and $40,000.

2. What options are open to you if the amendment fails?

3. Using existing estimates and information, what is the gallon
per day consumption of water in your district? Can you
project this figure ahead to 1985?

4. If you currently can levy a tax (SWFWMD and CSFFCD), what
will be the effect of passage on March 9?

5. What will be the effect if the referendum fails?

6. Do you currently administer any of the permit programs
authorized in chapter 273, Florida Statutes?

7. Will you be able to continue to administer these programs
if the referendum fails?

8. If not, who will administer these programs?

9. If the Legislature was forced to support the operations
-of water management districts through direct appropria-
tions, what appropriation would you require in 1976-77?

10. Are there any specific groups in your area which would
benefit if the referendum failed? How?

11. Are there groups which would suffer if the referendum
failed? How?.

12. Is.there other information you feel should be included
in a "fact sheet" relating to the village referendum,
such as boundary problems, if any?

I appreciate your assistance in this task. Hopefully, this informa-
tion will be useful to members of the Legislature who are asked to
speak on this issue.

Sincerely,


J--
James K. Lewis
Staff Director
