FlaWARN Committe - Hurricane Sally
Debra Englander
Published on: 9/15/2020
The FlaWARN Committee held a Zoom meeting to discuss the status of Hurricane Sally and its impact on the communities in the panhandle. We decided to place a Watch on this storm in place of making it an event until we receive further information from utilities needing assistance which will likely be more of a rain event than wind damage as it passes over the area. Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties ahead of Hurricane Sally's arrival on the Gulf Coast and it looks like pumps and possible generators will be the largest need so WATER Tracker will be open for any utilities to request needs. We will have another meeting tomorrow at 2:00 pm to give utilities time to make assessments and discuss next steps.

Article of Incorporation Amendment 01-12-2019
Published on: 1/12/2019
Amendment to Articles of Incorporation

President Darrow noted that ST Bishop had researched seemingly archaic Articles provisions requiring that FW&PCOA members be United States citizens and residents of Florida. ST Bishop presented a document replacing that section with a section which permits the FW&PCOA to establish and amend membership requirements as it deems appropriate.

Motion by XI/XIII to adopt proposed amendments to FW&PCOA Articles of Incorporation allowing the board of directors to establish and amend membership requirements from time to time, approved unanimously.
