SFWMD Technical Library, public comment at SFWMD Governing Board Meeting, 4/11/2019



s4s please let us know hello again I commend all you for sitting on your bus for so long most boards get up walk around walk out in the hall disappear for a while I have two things the first item has two parts that's a donation to the district and it refers to a technical reference library from 1963 through 2003 the district had a professional librarian sent Cynthia Plaquemine and at the end of her 40 years the district disbanded the technical library and tossed it to the winds I think that was a great disservice to the district and also to the 8-iron 0.1 million people so I've donated two items one of them is an 1884 book that has the first public the first published restoration plans for the Everglades the other one is a 1972 comic book and what does it say on the bottom of it I can't really stalks the Everglades I think you'll like that one more the second item I have and I'm glad you're sitting down is there's an Everglades Jetport that was built 50 years ago and if you look at any space satellite imagery it shows up on it and a side note is the reason we have a NEPA Act is because of that Everglades Jetport which should never have been started because there was no coordination at all with any of the federal agencies and my challenge to you is get that out of there it doesn't need to be there miami-dade spends a couple hundred thousand dollars keeping it there just so jets can touchdown and take off which of course puts a lot of pollution into the Everglades besides noise and it's something you can do in months instead of years like everything else you have to do thank you this money
