The board decided that having speakers from various organizations come and speak would be the best way to inform the board to what needs to happen throughout Santa Rosa County. The board decided to ask Cliff Street of DEP and Mike Lewis of EPA to be speak at the April 18, 2000 meeting. The board members suggested having someone from the Water Management District and Kristin Anderson of the Planning Department come to the subsequent meeting to speak. Walker suggested having Board members compile a list of desired speakers and e-mail that list to him to help make future arrangements.
Earlier announced, the next meeting is April 18, 2000.
Meeting adjourned at 7:02 p.m.
