Background Discussion
  • The DeSoto Center was previously a retail strip mall.  It now houses Supervisor of Elections and MSO Operations/Property and Evidence.
  • There are currently 19 meters serving the DeSoto Center Complex.
  • Adoption of Budget Resolution B-13-046 in the amount of $22,000 would allow Property Management  to eliminate the 19 individual meters and consolidate them down to one master meter.
  • Based on the accounts listed, the base charge each month is $945.93.  Under the proposed consolidation, the base charge per month would be $305.34, saving Manatee County $640.59 per month.
  • This savings will pay for this project in approximately 34 months.
  • Budget Resolution B-13-046 in the amount of $22,000 is hereby presented to the BCC for adoption.  $13,000 will come from rebates received from FPL for energy saving changes for lighting fixtures, the balance of $9,000 to come from Reserves in the General Fund.
