Adoption of Resolution B-15-063 amending the Annual Budget of Manatee County, Florida, for FY 2014-2015.
In October 2013 staff submitted 6 proposals to SWFWMD under the Cooperative Funding Initiative for FY 2015 of which the Robinson Preserve-Phase 2 restoration project was the number one priority. The request was for $3,200,000 from the District with a land match of $3,200,000 from the County (through the donation of the land from the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast, who purchased the land with a donation of $3,200,000 from Mosaic Foundation).
The bid/construction documents have been prepared and will be issued once the grant has been accepted by the Board. Construction is expected to start in fall 2015.
