Once again, Polk County and her 17 municipalities

Polk County City of Fort Meade Town of Lake Hamilton
City of Auburndale City of Frostproof City of Lake Wales
City of Bartow Haines City City of Lakeland
City of Davenport Town of Hillcrest Heights City of Mulberry
Town of Dundee Village of Highland Park Polk City
City of Eagle Lake City of Lake Alfred City of Winter Haven

came together for the second meeting in the creation of the Polk Regional Water Cooperative. This is an historic time and I am honored to be serving in a small capacity to ensure we continue down the path of formation.

With our water supply resources being taxed, it is time to look at a regional entity to ensure a continued water supply for the future.

As the Pacific Institute acknowledges in their paper, SERVING THE PUBLIC INTEREST: CORPORATE WATER STEWARDSHIP AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT Government and our leaders must work more effectively and efficiently together in order for the private-sector to believe in what we do. This cooperative could be an opportunity to show this cooperation.
