Section 125.01, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 63-1598, Laws of Florida, as amended.

Background Discussion

Manatee County has a biosolids dryer facility which has sufficient capacity to process approximately one hundred fifty (150) wet tons of wastewater sludge per day. The wastewater sludge is converted to fertilizer pellets and marketed to a contracted distributor thereby generating revenue for the County.

The County processes approximately eighty five (85) wet tons of wastewater sludge per day in support of their three water reclamation facilities.  The City of Sarasota generates approximately twenty (20) wet tons of wastewater sludge in their wastewater system. They wish to deliver their wastewater sludge to the County Biosolids facility for treatment at the rate approved by the Manatee County BOCC on August 7, 2012 (Rate Resolution R-12-163).

On December 12, 2012, the City of Sarasota Commission approved the Wastewater Sludge Processing Agreement drafted by the Manatee County Attorney’s office.

The City of Sarasota Wastewater Sludge Processing Agreement would commence upon execution by both parties and continue for five (5) years until the date of September 30, 2017.

The Agreement, subject to mutual written agreement by both parties, may be renewed for one (1) additional period of five (5) years, commencing on October 1, 2017, and expiring on September 30, 2022.
