Enabling/Regulating Authority

Background Discussion
  • This is an annual event in which Manatee County participates for the benefit of Manatee County citizens. The City of Palmetto contracts to provide the fireworks display and the costs are shared equally between the City of Palmetto, City of Bradenton and Manatee County Government.
  • Resolution R-13-091 was approved by the Board on May 21, 2013, approving annual payments up to $10,000. Funding levels have remained consistent for 15 years.  An increase to allow up to  $15,000 is necessary to provide a satisfactory fireworks display and celebration for the community.  For the current year the county's share is $13,333.33.
  • Annual approvals will not be required by adopting Resolution R-16-121, which will supersede Resolution R-13-091.
