Approval of protocol for appointments to the Manatee County Housing Finance Authority.
Section 159.605, Florida Statutes
Manatee County Ordinance 79-06
Manatee County Ordinance 91-40
On October 20, 2015, the Board of County Commissioners discussed and expressed concerns about the manner in which members of the local Housing Finance Authority are appointed. It was determined at that time that the County Attorney would confer with counsel for the Authority and report back to the Board of County Commissioners with a recommended appointment protocol that would include advertising of vacancies on the Authority Board and a more formal application process.
Attached is a recommended protocol for filling vacancies on the Authority Board. The protocol was largely developed by counsel for the Authority (Angela Abbott, Esq.), with input from and minor recommendations made by the County Attorney.
The attached written protocol is recommended for formal approval by the Board of County Commissioners. If approved, this protocol will govern all future appointments to the Housing Finance Authority.
