Background Discussion
  • On January 13, 2009, Manatee County executed an agreement with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) for restoration activities at Hidden Harbour Park.  The agreement expired January 2014. 
  • Prior to the agreement expiring, SWFWMD issued Purchase Order 13PW0000092 in September 2013 for exotic plant species removal. 
  • On October 8, 2013, the Parks & Recreation Department was split and merged with the Natural Resources Department and the Property Management Department.  During this process the original purchase order was mislaid. 
  • The Southwest Florida Water Management District has extended the expiration date of the purchase order to May 31, 2015, so the work can be completed.
  • Adoption of Budget Resolution B-15-038 is requested.
