Background Discussion
Interlocal Agreements have been submitted by Southern Manatee Fire Rescue District, East Manatee Fire Rescue, West Manatee Fire District, Parrish Fire District, Cedar Hammock Fire Control District, and North River Fire District to provide enhanced customer service for owners/applicants involved in construction  projects within Manatee County.  The Interlocal Agreements will streamline the plan review process and allow for the Fire District's user service fees to be collected in one location in conjunction with the County's collection of County user fees from owners/applicants.  Manatee County Building and Development Services Department will be designated as the collector of these fees. 

The Building and Development Services Department currently collects the Fire District Impact Fees on all building permits.  By acceptance of the attached Interlocal Agreements the County will collect all the fees for the Fire Districts and then remit those funds to the respective fire district.
