Background Discussion
  • At work sessions on August 4, 2015, and September 15, 2015, staff presented the concept of establishing a Manatee County Healthcare Advisory Board (Advisory Board) to the Board of County Commissioners and staff was requested to bring back documentation to establish the Manatee County Healthcare Advisory Board.
  • At the October 6, 2015, meeting the Advisory Board was discussed; however, there was insufficient time to bring the issue to closure.
  • The proposed resolution outlines the creation of the Advisory Board, the purpose of the Advisory Board, the authority of the Advisory Board, the membership of the Advisory Board, the terms and eligibility, and sets an effective date. 
  • Membership is delineated in the draft resolution as a maximum of 11 members representing health care, mental health care, substance abuse care, social services, higher education, medically needy consumer(s) of healthcare, and representatives of the business community. These members would be selected by the Board of County Commissioners through the regular advisory board application process.
