Background Discussion

During the 2016 legislative session, Section 125.001 Florida Statutes was amended relating to joint meetings with other county or municipal boards. The new legislation requires that public notice be provided in all participating jurisdictions; that no official vote may be taken at the joint meeting; and that, prior to the joint meeting, all parties must adopt resolutions authorizing their participation.

A joint meeting of the Manatee and Sarasota Boards of County Commissioners has been scheduled for March 21, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. at the Manatee County Public Safety Center.
