The Florida Gulf Counties Consortium will hold a public review meeting on the draft State Expenditure Plan at 6:30 pm CT on January 22, 2018, in the Bay County Commission Chambers. The Plan outlines how Florida’s RESTORE Act Spill Impact Component funds will be spent. The funds are from Deepwater Horizon disaster Clean Water Act fines.

Florida’s allocation is $294 million, paid over a 15-year period. Approximately $12 million will be spent on projects in each of Florida’s 23 coastal counties. The plan can be downloaded from https://www.gulfconsortium.org/draft-state-expenditure-plan (22 megs). Another public review meeting will be in Tampa on January 23. Two public review webinars will also be held on Feb. 1 and 15. The comment period ends March 2, 2018.
