Background Discussion

On January 9, 2018, the Board approved the submittal of an application to the West Coast Inland Navigation District (WCIND) for grant funds to assist with the dock replacement.  The WCIND board approved the application on January 26, 2018.  The proposed project will remove and replace all wooden components of the docks including pilings, stringers, and decking. This will result in the greatly extended serviceable lifespan of the docking structures. The proposed cost of the project is $205,000.  This includes a $65,000 grant from WCIND, as well as $140,000 from the Florida Boating Improvement Fund for the $65,000 WCIND 50 % match requirement and $75,000 for design and permitting costs not eligible for WCIND funding.

Kingfish Boat Ramp is Manatee County’s most heavily used public boat ramp. As such, the wooden docks experience significant wear and tear from boats and the elements. Major damage to the eastern dock at the boat ramp was observed in summer of 2017 and the damaged section was removed for safety reasons. The current existing docks are nearing the end of their serviceable lifespan and need to be replaced in their entirety. Please note that this project addresses current maintenance requirements, this work is not part of the overall renovation of the entire boat ramp facility which is projected to occur sometime in the future.

Adoption of Budget Resolution B-18-045 amending the annual budget of Manatee County for FY 2018 is requested.
