Weeki Wachee Springs Would Still Run Like A Business

Published: April 29, 2008
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which runs the state park system, will be able to submit an amendment request for the 2008-09 budget to secure the money to run Weeki Wachee Springs, according to language in the state's budget conference report finalized this week.

DEP would get funding equal to the revenue that the park is expected to bring in next year, and the budget amendment must be "accompanied by a detailed business plan for operation of the attraction" and include an itemized list of revenue and the costs to operate and maintain the 60-year-old landmark, the report language states.
