Re: Tampa Bypass Canal
Spoil Material

Dear Bobt

Receipt is acknowledged of your letter of October 25, 1972,
concerning the sale of spoil material from the Tampa Bypass

Since the last District meeting, I have gone back to review
the law and I have also had a discussion with Bob Grafton of
the Central and Southern Florida Flood Control District. I
am of the opinion that we do not have to comply with the statute,
as we do in the sale of land. However, it is similar to the
sale of surplus materials.

I feel that we should advertise and sell it to the highest
bidder, so that there will be no criticism of the District
for giving somebody a special deal or something to that effect.
We may be able to set up a provision that the bid which is
accepted will set the price for all of the spoil material and
that we should not sell any for a lesser amount; however, if
someone were taking smaller amounts and it was necessary for
us to supervise it, it would seem to me that we should add
something to the price on the smaller quantities.

Really, I think we should have a general discussion of this

Octo- 31, 19 72

Mr. Robert L. Watson 2

matter among ourselves, make a recommendation to the Board,
and then let the Board discuss it and set the policy so that
/0p one will be embarrassed by the method in which the spoil
is sold.

Yours very truly,

Myron G. Gibbons

Re: Tampa Bypass Canal
Spoil material

Dear Mr. Gibbons:

Please advise if it would be
from the Tampa Bypass Canal.

possible for us to sell spoil material

Could we set an unlimited quantity, establish a location and then ad-
vertise. When we received the highest bid, could we accept it and then
sell to others spoil material from the same area at the same price per
yard as the top bid, as long as we are not taking away from the quantity
the original bidder bid for. In other words, if we have a bid of 100
per yard for 5,000 yards and we have 1,000,000 yards to sell could we
sell it off to any one in truck load lots.

This could also be for any areas where we have stockpiles or those areas
where they would have to dig material from the right-of-way.

If this is permissable, please advise.

Very truly yours,

1Director, Real Estate Division
