Managing hydrilla in Lake Kissimmee will be the topic of a public meeting tonight in Lake Wales.
The meeting hosted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will be held in the Lake Wales commission chambers, 201 Central Ave. W. It begins at 6 p.m.
FWC officials are seeking input from the wide variety of user groups on Lake Kissimmee to create a well-balanced approach to managing hydrilla on the lake.
“We want to know what business owners, property owners, anglers, hunters, bird watchers, airboaters and others who have a vested interest in the lake think; and now is the time to get involved,” said Danielle Schobl, an FWC invasive plant management biologist.
