The Board of County Commissioners has approved this payment annually since that time.  Most recently, the Board approved a payment of $28,885.63 to the City of Bradenton for the 2015 tax bill at the meeting of  May 10, 2016.  It was requested by the Board at that time that a formal agreement be prepared between Manatee County and the City of Bradenton.
