    GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE CONSIDERED: To receive testimony and public comment and take final action on management of the FY 2008 State Revolving Fund priority list for water pollution control loan projects under Chapter 62-503, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), management of the FY 2006 Financially Disadvantaged Small Community Grants priority list under Chapter 62-505, F.A.C., and adoption of the FY 2008 Small Community Wastewater Facilities Grants priority list under Chapter 62-505, F.A.C.

    Projects qualifying under Chapter 62-503, F.A.C. for wastewater, stormwater, or non-point source loans will be ranked and added to the FY 2008 priority list if requests and required documentation are received by September 10, 2007, and approved by the Department by September 25, 2007. Pursuant to subsection 62-503.600(4), F.A.C., the Department’s funding commitment to projects currently assigned to the water pollution control loan priority list may be withdrawn at the hearing if a local government is delinquent in submitting documents as scheduled.

    Eligible grant amounts may be adjusted for projects already listed on the FY 2006 Financially Disadvantaged Small Community Grants priority list which remain incompletely funded. New projects qualifying under Chapter 62-505, F.A.C. for grants will be ranked and placed on the FY 2008 Small Community Wastewater Facilities Grants priority list if requests and required documentation were received and approved by the Department prior to July 1, 2007.

    Prior to Department action at the hearing, all interested persons will have the opportunity to testify regarding the lists and any proposed actions. The Department may adopt, modify, or deny the proposed actions at the hearing.

    After the hearing, the Department will file the written Record of Final Agency Action.
