Background Discussion

The School Board of Manatee County on June 14, 2016, approved a resolution (Resolution 2016-03 attached to the County resolution as Exhibit A) requesting that a referendum for a half-cent sales surtax for acquisition, renovation, and construction of educational facilities be placed on the ballot on the election to be held on November 8, 2016.

State statutes require that the governing body of the County must place the ballot question on the ballot.  Adoption of this Resolution R-16-109 will so advise the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections to place the question on the ballot.
