River Board approves Florida State Capital update of its Legislation

Florida_state_capitolFirst established via Chapter 86-335, Laws of Florida, on June 6, 1986, the River Board is a special Board and Council established by the Florida Legislature to monitor activities and actions in the Hillsborough River Corridor. The river begins in west central Florida, and enters Tampa Bay in the center of the City of Tampa. The River Board’s recommendations for river management are forwarded to the local political bodies, regulatory agencies, and others involved with the river’s overall management for consideration and implementation. Various aspects of the River Board and TAC’s made-up and operations are outlined in the legislation. One of the organizations specified in the legislation as having a seat on the TAC no longer exists. This makes it difficult to reach a quorum. At its February meeting, the River Board directed the Executive Director, Shawn College, to pursue this and other minor updates of the legislation.
