Action Requested

Adoption of Resolution R-17-93 and approval of the Updated Phosphate Mining Fee Schedule.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Ordinance 04-39, Manatee County Phosphate Mining Code

Background Discussion

The existing phosphate mining fee schedule (Resolution 07-231) has not been amended since it was adopted on December 18, 2007.  The intent of the fee schedule is to recover administrative costs in reviewing applications/submittals related to phosphate mining activities.

The proposed fee schedule is based on a comprehensive fee study by Fiscal Choice Consulting, LLC, which considered direct staff effort, indirect expenses, and adjustment for severance tax.  Based on the results of this fee study, increases are proposed to all current fees and four (4) additional fees have been added. These new fees are calculated based on labor and indirect costs associated with recently performed tasks or estimated based on best professional judgment.

The new fee schedule would become effective on October 1, 2017.
