City of Sarasota Termination of Wastewater Sludge Processing Agreement


Contact and/or Presenter Information
Jeff Goodwin, Utilities Wastewater Division Manager.

Action Requested
Authorization for Chairman to execute the Termination of Agreement for the acceptance and processing of wastewater sludge with the City of Sarasota.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Section 125.01, Florida Statutes, and Chapter 63-1598, Laws of Florida.

Background Discussion
On January 8, 2013, Manatee County entered into an Agreement with the City of Sarasota for the acceptance and processing of wastewater sludge generated by the City's wastewater system.

The City of Sarasota would now like to cancel their Wastewater Sludge Processing Agreement with Manatee County that expires on September 30, 2017. The City has chosen to try another type of sludge processing utilizing a compost-like system (currently being used in Englewood).

The City desires to terminate the Agreement by mutual written consent of the parties in accordance with paragraph 4.b. of the Agreement.

Manatee County is willing to agree to the termination of Agreement by mutual written consent with the City.  The Termination of Agreement shall become effective upon execution by both parties.

On July 21, 2014, the City of Sarasota Commission will be approving the Termination of Agreement. All signed originals of the Termination of Agreement will be hand-delivered prior to the July 29, 2014, Board of County Commissioners meeting.
