Mr. Frank Green, Attorney of Ocala, representing Libby & Company, owners of a large acreage of groves at Howey, and Mr. Roberts, Mr. Jones and Mr. Campbell, represented by Mr. Walton Hunter, Attorney, appeared before the Board re: The drainage of Little Everglades. Mr. Green stated that the Little Everglades have partially been drained by a pump installed by Mr. Jones, and that the land is not all owned by Roberts, Jones and Campbell, and they have trespassed on lands of Libby and Company. A dragline has deepened the ditch last year and this year. This ditch was originally built for water control and originally was one foot, but is now 4 feet. The culverts under the old Groveland road have been lowered about 3 feet. The bottom level of the ditch has been lowered and draws off water very rapidly. Mr. Green asked the Board to make an investigation and restore the culverts to former levels and stated they also expect Mr. Jones to stop pumping water off their land and drying up the natural pond.
Dr. W. Husmann, Manager of the Apshawa groves, also appeared before the Board, and protested the action of the parties draining the Little Everglades.

Mr. Jones stated this project was started in 1953 and the former owner of the Libby lands – C. V. Griffin – was fully informed of what would happen and he was satisfied with this.
After the foregoing discussion, Mr. Duncan, Attorney for the Board, stated the only way for this matter to be settled, would be to get the facts together and probably have them settled in Court. Until the Board knows all facts, do not think it can take any position. Mr. Green again asked that the Board investigate the matter and give them a report. Mr. Duncan stated he understands the State Road Department has put in the culverts and any investigation should include the State Road Department engineers.
