Enabling/Regulating Authority
As authorized under Chapters 125, 489, and 553 Florida Statutes.

Background Discussion
  • The attached resolution and ordinances establish rules and regulations for licensed contractors, and repeal prior related Resolution 96-56 and Ordinances 96-05, 96-20, and 99-57.
  • The following changes have been recommended:
    • Reduces the Board Members from 11 to 7. It is becoming more difficult to find people willing to serve. Meetings have been scheduled and we did not have a quorum.
    • Reduces the requirements for a quorum from 7 to 4;
    • Eliminates the duplication of licensing by Manatee County and the State of Florida; and
    • Changes the contractor's qualification file with Manatee County expiration date of September 30 annually to August 31 annually, consistent with the State of Florida expiration date.
