Port Authority to reconsider responses to feasibility study

Citrus County, FL-- The Citrus County Port Authority will meet on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 9:30am at the Citrus County Courthouse, Room 100, to discuss and reconsider responses from nine applicants to the Authority’s request for qualifications for the development of a Port Citrus Feasibility Plan.  These responses were presented publically to the Authority back in the spring of 2012. 

The reason for this Port Authority meeting is that a sunshine law violation has been alleged and litigation filed against the Port Authority regarding the ranking process. In an abundance of caution, the Authority is taking this action to re-evaluate the responses.

The Port Authority will meet as outlined above to review and consider each firm’s response. The Port Authority will rank by open ballot the best-qualified applicant to complete the feasibility study for Port Citrus. 

Funds for the feasibility study are capped at $100,000 but the cost may be less depending on the scope of services negotiated with the top ranked firm.

This meeting is open to the public.  The Courthouse is located at 110 N. Apopka Ave., Inverness, FL 34450.
