Background Discussion
The Manatee County Sheriff's Office submitted a Request for Legal Services to the County Attorney's Office (CAO) on September 6, 2017, requesting amendment of the current ordinance that regulates secondhand dealers. Said ordinance would replace Sections 2-19-104 through 2-19-106 of the Manatee County Code of Ordinances, and would require secondhand dealers to meet more stringent standards of notification of sale after a holding period.

Assistant County Attorney Alexandria Nicodemi has prepared  Ordinance 17-54 for Board consideration, and same is attached. Pursuant to Section 125.66, Florida Statutes, a Notice of Public Hearing was published  in the Bradenton Herald on Tuesday, November 28, 2017.
