Background Discussion

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) is disbursing available surplus 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. 

Total eligible cost of $140,249 less original agreement amount of $62,788 leaves a balance of  $77,461 for possible future reimbursement.  Additional funding from FDEP in the amount of $49,314 has become available.

The State notified Manatee County of this available funding on May 21, 2015.  Due to funding constraints and State imposed spending deadlines, this agreement must be approved and returned to the State by June 15, 2015.
