Background Discussion

The terms of use of Manatee County's barge loading dock facility, located at the end of Anna Maria Island on Longboat Pass, are specified in a long standing interlocal agreement between Manatee County (County) and the City of Bradenton Beach (City). Over time, this agreement has been amended as necessary to allow other uses of the facility by the County and the City. The most recent amendment regarding use of the barge loading facility was executed by the County and the City on May 21, 2019, and is attached with Exhibit A depicting the authorized area of use.

The City again wishes to utilize the barge loading facility, according to the specified conditions, for: construction and environmental mitigation activities associated with the dredging of a channel (commonly described as the Bradenton Beach Access Channel); construction and environmental activities associated with the Bradenton Beach Living Shoreline Project; and construction and environmental activities associated with the Bradenton Beach City Historic Pier, Floating Dock, Finger Docks, and Dinghy Dock Project.

Execution of the amendment will extend the duration of the agreement to January 1, 2025, and allow sufficient time for the City to complete the projects.
