The Governing Board of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint Stakeholders plans to hold its second meeting Feb. 25-26 in Apalachicola, Fla.

“This meeting will recommend specific work plans developed by each of the standing committees that contribute to the mission and goals as defined in the (organization’s) charter,” said Wilton Rooks, executive committee chairman.

Volunteers throughout the ACF Basin, which includes Lake Lanier, “have spent hundreds of hours developing these work plans,” added Rooks, also vice president of the Lake Lanier Association.

The meetings will begin at 10 a.m. Feb. 25 and end at 1 p.m. Feb. 26 at the restored Old Cotton Warehouse on Water Street.
The meeting is open to the public.

The group was founded in 2009 to seek common ground amid a tri-state political and legal battle over water usage in the basin.

Georgia, Florida and Alabama governors since have agreed to meet to work out differences.
