Webinar Wednesday

Each week, the Institute for County Government (ICG) is hosting Webinar Wednesday. Originally, the weekly webinars were put into place to provide continuing education when in person meetings were no longer possible as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to their continuing success, ICG looks to continue offering regular webinars even when in-person meetings resume.

Navigating the Waters of HB53: Stormwater and Wastewater 20-year Needs Analyses

February 2, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. (EST)

Join FAC’s Rural Caucus and JonesEdmunds for a webinar focused on the implementation of HB53 which requires the Office of Economic & Demographic Research (EDR) to include an analysis of the expenditures necessary to repair, replace, and expand water-related infrastructure in its annual assessment of Florida's water resources and conservation lands. This is the first webinar for the 2022 FAC Rural Caucus Webinar Series focused on Infrastructure.

By June 30, 2022, and every five years thereafter, the bill requires each county, municipality, or special district providing wastewater or stormwater services to develop a needs analysis for its jurisdiction over the subsequent 20 years. Counties must compile the local reports (including their own) and submit them to EDR and the secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection by July 31, 2022. EDR must evaluate the compiled documents for the purpose of developing a statewide analysis for inclusion in the annual assessment due January 1, 2023.

will provide background information on the new reporting requirements, goals of the assessments, deadlines and timelines, and approaches for completing the assessments.
