Background Discussion
The Manatee County Sheriff's Office submitted a Request for Legal Services to the County Attorney's Office (CAO) on September 6, 2017, requesting amendment of the current ordinance that regulates secondhand dealers. Said ordinance would replace Sections 2-19-104 through 2-19-106 of the Manatee County Code of Ordinances, and would require secondhand dealers to meet more stringent standards of documentation of transactions and notification of sale after a holding period.

This matter was previously scheduled for a hearing before the Board of County Commissioners for the December 12, 2017 regular meeting. At the request of Manatee County Sheriff's Office, the first draft ordinance was removed from the agenda on December 11, 2017.

Assistant County Attorney Alexandria Nicodemi has prepared  Ordinance No.18-26 for Board consideration, and same is attached. Permission is requested to advertise for a public hearing to consider adoption of this Ordinance.
