This may be short notice (I received the e-mail at 11:00 AM, June 10, 2019), but I highly recommend that residents and elected officials attend and advocate strongly for a budget that includes canal bank restoration in Palmetto Bay.
Other governments may promote it by including it in their municipal legislative agendas, but the State will be reluctant to fund items for the SFWMD not requested by the SFWMD Board. - this is our best opportunity!
