Budgets are finalized, American Rescue Plan Act money is available, and November 1, 2021, is the deadline for Florida utilities to submit their plans for elimination of wastewater discharges to surface water. Jones Edmunds’ Terri Lowery served as a panelist on the Florida League of Cities August #FLCitiesStrong webinar which explored the budget and resource-planning puzzle that many utilities are facing since Senate Bill 64 was passed in June. The webinar included FLC webinar hosts Dr. Scott Paine and Shwanda Barnette along with expert panelists Laura Donaldson, a Shareholder with Florida based law firm Manson Bolves Donaldson Varn; Lisa Wilson-Davis, the Operations & Environmental Compliance Manager for the City of Boca Raton; Jan McLean, a Senior Assistant Attorney for the City of Tampa; and Terri Lowery, Senior Vice President of Jones Edmunds.
