If you want a say in how Gulf restoration funds are spent, you have a chance Wednesday night in St. Petersburg; the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council has released a draft of funding priorities using money from the settlement with Transocean after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

The meeting is at 100 Eighth Avenue Southeast in St. Petersburg, the FWC Fish & Wildlife Research Institute. It begins at 6:00 p.m.

Public Comment will be accepted until September 28 and release a final plan by the end of the year. If you can’t make it, you can comment on the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council website.

WMNF’s Seán Kinane interviewed Kendra Parson, director of external affairs for the Council.
