When Charlotte County Commissioners send their legislative delegation to Tallahassee on Nov. 20, it will seek $46 million in funding for various infrastructure projects and send letters of support for a school, nonprofit and water authority.

During Thursday’s regular and land-use meetings, commissioners decided to ask for the $2.5 million for flood monitoring and a response network.
