E: Basin Board Chairmen
ob Martinez has expressed a desire to have Nick Pender
named as chairman of the Alafia Basin while Bob remains
s chairman of the Hillsborough and Northwest Hillsborough
asins. This has been approved by Mr. McAteer and the
appointment will probably be announced tomorrow.
ob Atkinson called today posing this problem:
1. Bob Martinez actually lives within the Northwest
2. Nick Pender lives within the Hillsborough Basin.
3. Chapter 61-691 provides that the member of the
Governing Board representing the basin or
representing the area including the basin shall
be the ex officio chairman of the basin board.
4. Section 373.0691(6), Florida Statutes, supercedes
this and provides that a member of the Governing
Board residing in the basin shall be the ex officio
chairman of the basin board.
t would appear that Nick Pender, residing in the Hillsborough
asin shall be the ex officio chairman of that board and that
ob Martinez, residing in the Northwest Hillsborough Basin,
hall be the ex officio chairman of that basin.
ince no one resides in the Alafia Basin, either would be
eligible for such appointment by the chairman.
