Beach Renourishment Funding
Contact and/or Presenter Information
Charlie Hunsicker, Director, Parks and Natural Resources
Adoption of Resolution R-14-054 supporting a County application for beach renourishment state funding.
State rules mandate that the County submit a resolution for funding eligibility
Manatee County participates with the State of Florida and the federal government to cost share for beach renourishment as the local project sponsor for beach renourishment on Anna Maria Island.
Each year the State of Florida prepares a long-range beach management budget for all eligible and anticipated projects along the state coastline. As part of the application process, a current and updated resolution for the eligible government entity which includes statements of their support of the project, willingness to serve as the local sponsor, and a statement of the extent of their ability and willingness to provide the necessary local funding to implement the project is required. In addition, the resolution identifies the source of the matching funds, in this case the Tourist Development Tax.
This information, along with the other application materials, currently being prepared by the County's engineering consultant, CBI, is used by the State to prioritize and rank projects for funding. Attached as an informational item is a copy of the 2014-2015 application.
Manatee County has been successful in the past in securing funding to match local expenditures from the dedicated one cent Tourist Development Tax. State competition for funding remains high as federal and state matching funding may be reduced in the future due to other national and state priorities.
