SVCA Government Affairs Committee

Committee Chair Steve Suau reports:The SVCA through its Governmental Affairs Committee (GAC) have facilitated and supported residents efforts in the southern portion of South Venice, located in Englewood Water District (EWD).  Although the overwhelming majority of residents were opposed to EWD’s plans to sewer the area and EWD could not identify an environmental need for the project, the EWD Board of Supervisors voted 4 to 1 to proceed with project. The affected South Venice homeowner’s in the V9-C have formed an Ad-Hoc Committee: “The South Venice Homeowners Affected by Sewer Expansion (SVHASE)” with the support of the SVCA GAC.  Their group, called SVHASE, are pursuing financial assistance options with the local and State legislature as well as legal options with legal council.
