Background Discussion
  • On December 4, 2017, the Manatee County Tourist Development Council unanimously recommended approval.
  • In September, 2017, The Anna Maria City Pier suffered severe damage from Hurricane Irma.  City of Anna Maria has applied for FEMA grant monies for the renovation process.
  • This agreement allows a one-time reimbursement of up to one million five hundred thousand dollars ($1,500,000.00) of the estimated $3.2 Million dollar project, less the FEMA grant dollars received by City of Anna Maria.
  • Manatee County CVB/TDC will invest in a dollar for dollar match (up to $1.5 Million).
  • City of Anna Maria will oversee the entire pier renovation project and will facilitate procurement process for general contractor services.
  • Post renovation, City of Anna Maria will have a preventative maintenance program that will be paid for by their municipality.
  • The anticipated service life of the newly renovated pier will be 75 - 100 years. 
  • This agreement shall terminate January 1, 2020.
  • This 100 year old pier is iconic in our community, and will help generate marketplace impressions that will assist in tourism development.
  • This Budget Amendment (B-18-023) allows transfer of $1.5 Million from reserves in the Tourist Development Tax Fund for this expenditure.
  • All funds involved are tourism taxes, NOT ad valorem taxes.
