Nestle permit deleted from SRWMD agenda 2020-03-10

How does Nestlé appeal a decision that hasn’t been made yet? I guess we’re about to find out.

Meanwhile, I plan to go speak anyway, 9AM Tuesday 10 March 2020 at SRWMD HQ in Live Oak. How about you?

For inspiration, see the WWALS videos of the 32 speakers from December.

    What in the world? Can we contact the judge and voice our displeasure?
    I guess Nestlé is trying to pull a fast one. Such a giant and rich company. Scary.
    What can I do to help?
