Motion to adopt Ordinance 14-06 and to adopt Resolution 14-11.
Florida Statute 165.043
Based on the apparent intent of the County Commission in 1973 to have the DeSoto boat logo become the Official Seal of Manatee County, and to ensure that its Official Seal has the legal protections afforded to seals, the Official Seal must be adopted by formal ordinance.
On Jan. 29, 2013, the Board extended the use of that campaign by approving the use of a similar branding package for Manatee County Area Transit buses, benches, and bus shelters.
In an effort to broaden the campaign and ensure County Government assets, marketing materials, and communication pieces have a consistent design with that of the CVB and MCAT, a new logo is being presented to the Board for consideration.
No special expenses are projected to be incurred as part of the new County branding. The new logo will be incorporated on new letterhead, business card, and presentations templates for staff use, and the new logo will replace the longstanding DeSoto ship symbol whenever fleet vehicles, uniforms, and facility signs are being re-ordered and updated as part of their routine replacement schedule.
