About West Lakeland Water Control District

The West Lakeland Water Control District (“District”) is an independent local unit of special-purpose government created pursuant to and existing under the provisions of Chapter 298, Florida Statutes and became effective on December 1,1978.

The West Lakeland Water Control District is organized similar to other local governments in Florida, in that the legislative body is composed of a three-member board known as the Board of Supervisors. The Board establishes the policy of the District in accordance with Florida law. The Board, by law, must hire a District Manager and District Counsel. Staff members operate utilizing the same formalities as a County Administrator and County Attorney. The Board, through review of advertised Requests for Qualifications, ranks and selects a District Engineer to perform the engineering needs of the District. District Management staff and the District Attorney administer the operations of the District and implement the Board’s policies and contracts.

The West Lakeland Water Control District operates within the ethics provisions as outlined by the Florida Commission on Ethics.
