Action Requested

Authorization for the County Administrator to execute FY 2016-2017 Slosberg Funding Agreement with The School District of Manatee County for the time period October 1, 2016, through September 30, 2017, and to adopt Budget Resolution B-17-031.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

F.S. 125

Background Discussion

In 2002 the Florida Legislature created the Dori Slosberg Driver Education Safety Act (F.S. 318.1215), which authorized county commissioners to adopt a local option fee to be collected on all civil traffic fines to be administered by the county to fund "driver education programs in public and non-public schools."

On October 24, 2006, the Board adopted Ordinance No. 06-66, providing additional penalty for civil traffic violations to fund driver education programs.

In October 2016, pursuant to resolution R-08-197, availability of FY 2016-17 funding was publicly noticed to both public and non-public schools in Manatee County, which have "secondary" level students (high school) and are eligible to receive these funds.

An agreement is needed at this time to reimburse the School District of Manatee County for services rendered and the purchase of one fleet vehicle during the period of October 1, 2016, through September 30, 2017, in the amount of $175,000.
