Flood legislation to be topic of discussion

Representatives of Weeki Wachee, Hernando Beach, Aripeka, Palm Grove Colony, Pine Island and Port Richey coastal residents and the Hernando Beach Property Owners Association will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Weeki Wachee Area Club on Shoal Line Boulevard.

The purpose of the meeting is to organize support for bills sponsored by state Sen. Ginny Brown-Waite, R-Brooksville, and state Rep. Nancy Argenziano, R-Dunnellon, that would redefine the meaning of "substantial improvement" when determining whether flood-damaged homes must be elevated. Information will be provided, and petitions will be circulated.
