Background Discussion

On October 21, 2013, the Manatee County Tourist Development Council unanimously recommended approval.

On January 7, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners revised the Tourist Tax Ordinance to allow this expenditure.

This agreement allows a one-time reimbursement of up to one million dollars ($1,000,000) for the Bradenton Beach (Bridge Street) Pier renovation project (which is estimated to cost a total of $2,000,000). 

Manatee County (CVB/TDC) will invest in a dollar for dollar match (up to $1 million) with the City of Bradenton Beach.

City of Bradenton Beach will oversee the entire pier renovation project and will facilitate procurement process for general contractor services. 

Post renovation, City of Bradenton Beach will have a preventative maintenance program that will be paid for by the City of Bradenton Beach.

This agreement shall terminate January 1, 2016.

This iconic pier will help generate marketplace impressions that will assist in tourism development.

Budget Amendment B-14-034 allows transfer of $1,000,000 from reserves in the Tourist Development Tax fund for this expenditure/reimbursement.


All funds involved are tourism taxes, NOT ad valorem taxes.
