2017-08-16: The letter today from Suwannee Riverkeeper to Bradford BOCC.
A month ago (see WWALS videos) the Commissioners scheduled a decision on hiring a consultant for this Thursday, and others have scheduled a protest before it. See you there.
6:30 PM, Thursday, August 17, 2017, BOCC Meeting
5:30 PM Phosphate Mine Protest
Bradford County Courthouse
945 North Temple Avenue
Starke, Florida 32091
What: County Commissioners of Bradford County, Florida
Protest: facebook event for 5:30 PM Phosphate Mine Protest, hosted by Our Santa Fe River (OSFR)
The regular attendees said there would be no fireworks this time. Yet it was a very interesting meeting, especially once the County Attorney asked for scheduling a date to select the consulting engineer about the phosphate mine. The Commissioners and staff discussed August 8 in the morning or August 17 in the evening. Public comment preferred the latter. The County Attorney strongly advised they go ahead and decide when so there will be plenty of time to advertise it. The decision: Thursday evening, August 17, 2017.
