Background Discussion

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) is disbursing available funding to local governments with projects deemed eligible for funding, but for which the State grant funding was not previously available.

FDEP Agreement 14ME4 for reimbursement of the Longboat Pass Inlet Management Study in the amount of $62,788 was executed by the Board on December 16, 2014.  Manatee County's total cost for the study was $186,999, which under the 75% State/25% Local cost share percentages would result in a reimbursement to Manatee County of $140,249.

Amendment #1 to the Agreement in the amount of $49,314 was executed by the Board on June 2, 2015.

Amendment #2 provides an additional $28,222 for reimbursement of the Longboat Pass Inlet Management Study and $114,687 for the 75% reimbursement of the cost of design, permitting, and engineering services for Longboat Pass Maintenance Dredging.

Adoption of Budget Resolution B-16-023 in the amount of $142,909 amending the FY 2016 annual budget of Manatee County is requested at this time.
