Background Discussion

Manatee County owns beach concessions on Anna Maria Island with Franchise License Agreements to operate the facilities.

The County receives revenue payments pursuant to the Concession Contracts and the Board of County Commissions has exercised its budgetary discretion to allocate revenues paid to the County under the Concessions Contract net of the baseline amount of $233,520 "Surplus Concession Revenues" to the funding of public projects that benefit Anna Maria Island (Resolution R-14-119).

A Joint Letter of Support including Mayors representing the Cities of Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and Anna Maria has been received in accordance with Resolution R-14-119.  The written request for a public capital project that serves a valid public purpose and benefits the entire Anna Maria Island is to purchase and install permanent outdoor fitness equipment to be placed along the fitness trail at Coquina Beach. Funding in the amount of $15,000 is to be utilized from Surplus Concession Revenues. 

The project will include four workout stations spread out along the east side of the trail, each providing a variety of exercise options (see attached).  Tan and blue color exercise equipment has been selected to blend with the beach and Coquina concession building.

Staff recommends approval. 

Adoption of  Budget Resolution B-18-028 is being requested.
