Meet the Building and Development Services (BADS) Online Services Go-Live Team




We’re taking our customer service to another level by offering Manatee County Online Services, a new web-based tool that will allow you to do business with the Building and Development Services Department (BADS) without ever having to come to our offices. These new Onlines Services will be available to everyone, including homeowners, permitting services, agents and contractors.


For the first time, we’ll be offering all BADS services online and you’ll be able to:


  • remotely submit applications and payments for permitting, licensing, planning and zoning

  • track your project’s progress from submittal through final approval from the convenience of your connected home/office computers or mobile devices.


Anyone who prefers to do business with us the old-fashioned way, in person, will still have that option at either our downtown location or at the North River Annex in Ellenton. However, we think after you try our new Online Services, you’ll discover it’s an easy-to-use system that will save you time and travel. 


You may experience longer-than-usual wait times in our lobby as our staff begins transition the new system. To minimize any inconvenience, we encourage you to visit us in the morning before 10 a.m., and to avoid peak hours between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
