Action Requested
  • Authorization to execute and record Partial Release and Clarification of Land from Schroeder - Manatee Ranch, Inc.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Florida Statutes Chapter 125. Land Development Code 531.37.D.14.f. A written instrument executed by the owner or operator granting Manatee County to enter the real property on which the site is located and remove the abandoned telecommunications tower at the owners expense following enforcement action.

Background Discussion

In 1999, a License Agreement was given to the County by Schroeder Manatee Ranch (SMR) for the purpose of entering the property and removing the telecommunications tower if deemed abandoned. Unfortunately an error in the legal description of the License Agreement caused the License Agreement to encompass the entire Section 36 instead of just the area necessary to access and remove the tower. The proposed new legal description and sketch will define a new access route and fall zone in which to accomplish the removal of an abandoned tower.
