Finance OKs withdrawal lawsuit funding

Published 08/05/2008 The Daily Record
The City Council Finance Committee Monday approved $400,000 for legal fees to help pay for a lawsuit by the City against Seminole County and the St. Johns River Water Management District. The legislation now goes to the full Council for approval, but only after a lengthy discussion.

The City’s (Jacksonville) Environmental Protection Board certainly supports preserving the health of the northern St. Johns River and opposes the planned massive withdrawal of water by Central Florida. However, Templeton said the EPB has other legislation pending that will require funding to support.
