RE: SWF Basin Board Meeting Notices//

Our rules require that "meetings of all basin boards shall ble
announced at the regular monthly meetings of the Governing/ 7
Board. special meetings may be held in the same manner /
as prescribed for holding special meetings of the Governing ---
Board." Rule 16J-0.430 (9)

"Special meetings of the Governing Board may be held to
consider specifically enumerated matter on call of the
Chairman and upon preparation of an agenda Rule
16J-0.430 (8)

We received notice of cancellation and rescheduling of the
Hillsborough River Basin Board meeting. In developing our
rules, we failed to say how a meeting date can be changed
1 after it is announced at the Governing Board meeting.

We provide that regular meetings of the Governing Board may
be held at other times only after publishing noticesnot less
than 10 days prior to the meeting.

In view of our (my, if you insist) omission, it appears that
the safest procedure would be to treat the February 27 Hills-
borough River Basin meeting as a special meeting. In the
alternative, we givepublic notice 10 days in advance of the
meeting. This is not specifically provided for, but it would
be hard to argue with it.

In any event, I think we should establish a procedure in handling
these in the future and discuss this with Jay Ahern as soon as
