Mayor Urges Crist Veto of Water Permitting Bill

In a letter dated June 4th, Mayor Peyton urges Governor Charlie Crist to veto Senate Bill 2080.  This is the bill that would require that the water management district’s executive director issue water use and wetland permits and delete the governing board from the approval process, unless the executive director recommended denial of the permit.  If signed into law, this legislation would prevent the public from having input to the water management district’s governing board on water use and wetland permits, except in cases of permit denials.
