Enabling/Regulating Authority

318.1215, Florida Statutes, Ordinance 06-66, Resolution R-08-197

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 violation to fund driver education programs.

In October 2015, pursuant to resolution R-08-197, availability of FY2015-16 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 Board of Manatee County for services rendered during the period of  October 1, 2015, through September 30, 2016, in the amount of $150,642.
