Motion to adopt proposed Resolution R-15-103 providing for distribution of proceeds of the County's Five and Six-Cent Local Option Fuel Tax.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes Section 336.025

Background Discussion
  • The five and six-cent local option fuel tax was extended on July 28, 2015, when the Board adopted Ordinance 15-28. According to FS 336.025, the County needs to redetermine the distribution of the gas tax when renewing or extending the existing gas tax.
  • According to FS 336.025(4)(a), the distribution of the proceeds of the tax shall be distributed among the county government and eligible municipalities based on the transportation expenditures of each for the immediately preceding five fiscal years, as a proportion of the total of such expenditures for the county and all municipalities within the county.
  • With the distribution recalculated according to FS 336.025(4)(a), the following table shows the current percentages and the proposed new percentages using the new calculations.
          Municipality   Current Distribution Recalculated Distribution
          Anna Maria             0.51%                       1.07%
