Action Requested
Authorize the Chairman to sign  Amendment No. 2 to Joint Participation Agreement (JPA) between the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Manatee County for the Manatee TMC design and installation of a redundant fiber connection.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes 339.12

Background Discussion
  • In May 2005, the Florida Department of Transportation, Sarasota County, Manatee County, City of Sarasota, and City of Bradenton entered into an Interlocal Agreement for cooperation and coordination in the operation of a Unified Intelligent Transportation Management System.
  • On May 8, 2012, Manatee County entered into a Joint Participation Agreement with FDOT for the TMC design and installation of a redundant fiber connection for $86,310.00.
  • Because the received design and construction estimate was received higher than estimated, the County requested an amendment to the JPA which increases the agreement from $86,310.00 to $116,310.00.
  • On September 25, 2012, the BOCC executed Amendment No.1.
  • The County requested additional funding due primarily to utility conflicts identified by the consultant.  This will require the proposed conduit to be "directional bore" which was not accounted for in the pre-design estimate.
  • Amendment No. 2 to the JPA increases FDOT's participation from $116,310.00 to $199,310.00.
