Background Discussion

The Board of County Commissioners executed a Master Agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) on September 17, 2002, for the operation and maintenance of the traffic signals located on State Highways within the unincorporated portion of Manatee County.  The agreement requires the County to operate and maintain the traffic signals on State Highways in compliance with the rules and standards of the FDOT in exchange for compensation to the County by a statewide formula developed by the FDOT.

Each year the FDOT submits a revised Exhibit 'A' to the Master Agreement that establishes the current list of traffic signals and device locations and the amount of compensation due for each device location under the formula for the Board's review and approval.

On June 16, 2017, the Board and the FDOT executed an amendment to this Master Agreement. This amendment included new maintenance requirements and compensation for additional devices above and beyond what was included within the previous agreement.

The total compensation for FY 17/18 was $453,672.

The proposed total compensation for FY 18/19 is $476,819.

Public Works staff has reviewed the FY 18/19 Exhibit 'A' and agree it is a complete and accurate listing of the traffic control devices operated and maintained by the County under the terms of the Agreement with FDOT.

Staff recommends the Board approve the new FY 18/19 Agreement.
