The Big Cypress Basin Board's tour of the Picayune Strand Restoration Project scheduled for Friday, Oct. 21, has been canceled.
The next BCB Board meeting will be Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Collier County Board of County Commissioners Chambers in Naples.
The Big Cypress Basin is one of two major watershed basins within the South Florida Water Management District's 16-county region. The Basin includes Collier County and part of Monroe County.
The Big Cypress Basin Board sets the Basin regional policy, budget and millage rate. Members of the Basin Board, like members of the SFWMD Governing Board, are unpaid citizen volunteers appointed by the Governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate. They generally serve three-year terms. A Governing Board member residing in the Big Cypress Basin (or appointed by the Governing Board Chair) serves as the Basin Board's Chair.
The Basin Board typically meets once every quarter, unless otherwise announced. Meetings are open to the public.
