Former Polk County Commissioner John Hall has been appointed by Gov. Ron DeSantis to the Southwest Florida Water Management District Governing Board, subject to Florida Senate confirmation.
Hall’s name was submitted last year by the Polk Regional Water Cooperative at a time when there were numerous long-standing vacancies on this and other water boards around the state.
This is one of two seats on the board allocated for Polk County.
The other seat is held by Ashley Bell Barnett of Winter Haven, who was appointed in December.
