Background Discussion
1. On December 6, 2011, The Board of County Commissioners adopted R-11-243 establishing a fee schedule for the use of Manatee County Parks, Recreational Facilities, and Programs.
2. On January 19, 2014, a check in the amount of $370.00 for the registration of a softball team to participate in league play was returned by the bank for insufficient funds.
3. On February 4, 2014, the customer came in with the attached letter from Hancock Bank stating the check was returned due to a bank processing error. The customer paid $370.00 in cash to replace the returned check and asked that the NSF fee of $40.00 be waived due to said bank error.
