Background Discussion

Manatee County and the Florida Department of Health/Manatee County Health Department entered into an agreement effective 10/1/2015 (Executed 10/20/2015).  The funds were to be dispersed quarterly for specific services.

The Department of Health desires to amend the contract to be paid monthly and to permit the funds to be used for capital improvements which will improve the previously approved services.  All services included in the executed Agreement will continue to be provided, without interruption.  Select portions of the facility will be redesigned for renovation that will improve the overall function of the Facility and reduce operation costs by use of sustainable and more energy efficient construction materials and products. The facility improvements will also provide ADA compliance with 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design and bring the air conditioning, life safety, and electrical systems into compliance with current building and energy codes.

The Health Department facility is owned by the County and leased to the Department of Health.
