Action Requested

Enabling/Regulating Authority
FS 125

Background Discussion

The Longboat Pass Jetty has deteriorated and poses a threat to public safety; as well as no longer performs as an erosion control structure. A new structure is needed to help prevent the loss of sand along the shore and filling in the pass creating a navigational hazard.The feasibility jetty re-design study will determine what effects a jetty repair and/or replacement may have on Longboat Pass.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) Agreement No. 17ME3 provides 75% ($131,250) of State funding for this project.  Manatee County share is 25% ($43,750). 

Though the County Attorney's office has made some recommendations for paragraphs 22.B and 41, FDEP cannot make those changes. Staff recommends acceptance of the agreement.

Adoption of Budget Resolution B-17-060 is requested.
