The Business Administration section contains items that require the review and approval of the District Board of Supervisors as a normal course of business.
The Business Items section contains items for approval by the District Board of Supervisors that may require discussion, motion and votes on an item-by-item basis. Occasionally, certain items for decision within this section are required by Florida Statute to be held as a Public Hearing. During the Public Hearing portion of the agenda item, each member of the public will be permitted to provide one comment on the issue, prior to the Board of Supervisors’ discussion, motion and vote.

No motions or votes are made during workshops.
