Action Requested
Motion to adopt proposed Resolution R-13-165, providing for distribution of proceeds of the County's Four Cent Local Option Fuel Tax.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes Section 336.025

Background Discussion
  • The four cent local option fuel tax was extended in July 2013, when the BCC adopted Ordinance 13-29.  According to FS 336.025, the County needs to redetermine the distribution of the gas tax when renewing or extending the existing gas tax.
  • According to FS 336.025(4)(a), the distribution of the proceeds of the tax shall be distributed among the county government and eligible municipalities based on the transportation expenditures of each for the immediately preceding 5 fiscal years, as a proportion of the total of such expenditures for the county and all municipalities within the county. 
  • With the distribution recalculated according to FS 336.025(4)(a), the following table shows the current percentages and the proposed new percentages using the new calculations.
