The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will meet April 19-20 at the Florida Public Safety Institute, 85 Academy Drive, Havana, FL 32333. The Institute is west of Midway on U.S. 90. Both sessions are open to the public.

The meeting both days starts at 8:30 a.m., and the public will be provided opportunities to speak on agenda items both days.

The FWC is committed to providing ample opportunity for public input at each Commission meeting. As standard practice, the Commission will welcome public input regarding agenda items using the approved speaker registration process and time limits. To accommodate as much input as possible from those attending, the Chairman reserves the right to designate the amount of time given to each speaker, including time donation to other speakers. With regard to public comment on subjects that are not on the agenda, the Commission will have time on the agenda at the end of the second day, April 20. Those who wish to offer comments during this period will be asked to make sure their comments are not related to any agenda item. For future meetings, the day for comment regarding items not on the agenda will be identified when the agenda is posted.

For the full April 19-20 agenda and links to background reports, go to MyFWC.com/Commission and select “Commission Meetings.”
