Water Management

Tops Board Agenda

The March 3 referendum on water management
districts, a citrus property assessment guide, the use
of pulp washed solids and discussion of supply
management programs are expected to be on the
agenda of Wednesday's meeting of the Florida
Citrus Mutual board.
The board will meet at 1:30 p.m. at Mutual
headquarters in Lakeland.
Various committees, named by president Frank
Bouis, have already been in session this past week
:and others are expected to meet today and
Wednesday morning.
THE BOARD last month asked the Mutual staff
to present at the December meeting ideas on supply
management programs.
The referendum on the water management
districts is considered of special importance by state
*Sen. Phil Lewis.
At a meeting of the senate agricultural
committee in Lakeland, Lewis said there is a
difference between a "state agency" and an "agency
*of the state" and because of this he hoped the citrus
industry would review its position on the water
management referendum.
"IF IT (the referendum) fails, they (the
districts) will become state agencies and the power
Swill be in Tallahassee instead of in the districts,"
Lewis warned.
Citrus commissioner Charles Shinn said, "Most
citrusmen are more concerned about the changing
of the district boundaries than they are about the
"He said the citrusmen who are locatred in well
) established districts, such as Southwest Florida
SWater Management District and CentraI anf~r south
SFlorida Flood Control District, have become
accustomed to dealing with the staffs and have some
misgiving about having to work with new people
[with less experience in district affairs. .
