Action Requested

Authorization for Chairman to execute "Agreement for Temporary Wastewater Service" between Manatee County, Sarasota County, and Schroeder-Manatee Ranch.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Section 125.01, Florida Statutes; Chapter 153, Florida Statutes; and Chapter 63-1598, Laws of Florida, as amended.

Background Discussion

Schroeder-Manatee Ranch wishes to develop property just south of University Parkway in Sarasota County to which Sarasota County cannot yet provide water and wastewater service. Sarasota County wishes to utilize potable water from the existing water supply agreement with Manatee County to serve this area. A separate agreement for temporary provision of wholesale wastewater service to the area is also being requested. These services will be provided to this area by Sarasota County when their facilities are available. The water agreement is set to terminate in 2025 and the proposed wastewater agreement will terminate in 10 years (2028) unless Sarasota County facilities are available earlier.

The agreement calls for Manatee County to receive up to 30,000 gallons per day of wastewater into its wastewater system for transmission and treatment at Manatee County facilities. Sarasota County will pay Manatee County for wholesale wastewater service (a monthly customer charge plus a volumetric charge based on metered wastewater flow) per the Manatee County rate resolution in effect. Schroeder-Manatee Ranch will construct transmission facilities to direct the flow to the Manatee County system, will dedicate the improvements to Manatee County, and will pay the Facility Investment Fees required.

A similar agreement was entered into by these parties in 1996 to serve SMR property development in Sarasota County just east of I-75 before Sarasota County facilities were available.
