Manatee Code of Laws 2-29-25  Tourist Development Plan

F.S.S. 125.0104  Authorized uses of Resort Tax Funds

Background Discussion
  • On October 17, 2016, the Manatee County Tourist Development Council unanimously recommended approval.
  • The Tourist Development Tax Plan presently authorizes $1,000,000 of Tourist Development Tax proceeds for the Pier via a previous Interlocal Agreement (ILA) approved by the County Commissioners on January 28, 2014.  The County has reimbursed approximately $832,000 of construction costs to the City of Bradenton Beach under that ILA, such that $168,000 of the original $1,000,000 remains unutilized.  Therefore, the Ordinance is not required to be amended for this project. 
  • This ILA allows a one-time reimbursement of up to one hundred twenty five thousand dollars ($125,000) for the Bradenton Beach Bridge Street Pier Floating Dock Project. 
  • Manatee County (CVB/TDC) will invest in a dollar for dollar match (up to $125,000) with the City of Bradenton Beach on a reimbursement basis. 
  • City of Bradenton Beach will oversee the entire floating dock project and will facilitate procurement process for general contractor services.
  • Post project, City of Bradenton Beach will have a preventative maintenance program that will be paid for by the City of Bradenton Beach.
  • This Agreement shall terminate January 1, 2019.
  • The floating dock at the iconic Bridge Street Pier will help generate marketplace impressions that will assist in tourism development.
  • Budget Amendment B-17-018 allows the transfer of $125,000 from reserves in the Tourist Development Tax fund for this expenditure/reimbursement.
  • All funds involved are tourism taxes, NOT ad valorem taxes.
