Chapter 374 Florida Statutes, West Coast Inland Navigation District
Rule 66a-2 Florida Administrative Code
Manatee County is authorized by Rule 66A-2, Florida Administrative Code, to approve and administer waterway projects as a member of WCIND. Rule 66A G.A.C. also requires the submission of applications no later than May 31st of each year. The following funding categories have been established for WCIND projects: Law Enforcement; Navigation Improvement; Environmental Education; Boating Safety and Education; and Boating Recreation.
A total of 7 applications were received which met the criteria.
Per previous Board direction for no new starts, staff recommends approving the following continuing service applications:
The continuing services requests total: $505,000
WCIND funding is, along with Florida Boater Improvement Fees (FBIP), the primary source of funds for projects to renovate or add new boat ramps. In previous presentations to the Board, staff has shown that we are already facing a shortfall in meeting needed renovations to our existing boat ramps from projected available WCIND and FBIP funds. Staff is therefore not recommending any new application requests be approved to come from WCIND funds. To preserve available funding for boat ramp renovation projects the following new application requests are not recommended for funding:
The total of new start requests is: $146,242.89
The combined total of funding application requests is: $651,242.89
After these applications are submitted, WCIND will review for approval by their September 2018 meeting and formal agreements will be executed. They will also approve and sign all amendments/extensions for those grantees that request a one-year extension, which is allowed under Rule 66A-2 F.A.C. There are also sub-agreements and amendments between the County and City grantees.
