Governor Rick Scott is set to sign SB10 in Clewiston

CLEWISTON — Earlier this week Senate Bill 10, a move to secure funding for a water storage reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee was approved. In its amended form, Senate Bill 10 became a measure that we in the Glades could stand behind. The bill no longer stated that additional farmlands be taken out of production but rather the state would utilize the property that it already owns to create a reservoir with a much smaller footprint.

Florida’s Governor Rick Scott is scheduled to sign the bill Friday, May 12, at 9:45 a.m. at John Stretch Park located at 47225 U.S. Highway 27. I encourage those of you that can make arrangements to attend to please do so. We need to show the governor we are grateful that during this legislative process, the concerns that we as a community voiced were heard.

We are looking forward to seeing you tomorrow morning. Let’s show the Governor why we are “America’s Sweetest Town.”
