Work session (Workshop) - no actions
The Manatee County School Board and the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners are each considering proposals to place a referendum for a local sales tax on a ballot.
The School Board currently has a one-half cent local sales tax in place that was approved by the voters in 2002 and will expire on December 31, 2017.
The Board of County Commissioners recently received a recommendation from a citizen advisory committee to place a one-half cent local infrastructure sales tax referendum question on the November 2016 ballot.
This workshop is to discuss what is the best way for the School Board and County Commission to work together to achieve community goals.
