Intergovernmental Relations and Interlocal Agreements in Florida
Published by Florida Association of Special Districts

This two-hour course is part of the Certified District Officials (CDO) Program and will cover three general areas:

Part 1: Examines the roles and powers of special districts in the structure of Florida government. Where does your power come from? What are the limits of your power? How do your powers relate to those of other governments, such as the state, counties and municipalities?

Part 2: Explores the factors that create conflict and promote intergovernmental cooperation. What do governments fight about? Why cooperate? What is your role as an elected official in resolving intergovernmental conflict? What options or tools are available to you to overcome conflict?

Part 3: Reviews the advantages and disadvantages of the primary types of intergovernmental agreements, especially “handshake agreements”, memoranda of understanding (“MOUs”) and formal interlocal agreements (“ILAs”).

This course is geared to needs and interests of elected officials serving on the governing boards of special districts in the State of Florida, with particular emphasis on Drainage, Water Control and Improvement Districts (Chapter 298, F.S.), Fire Control and Rescue Districts (Chapter 191, F.S.), and Community Development Districts (Chapter 190, F.S.). These three categories of districts (of more than 75 recognized by the State) make up the principal membership of FASD.
