Background Discussion
• On July 30, 2014, a request was made by the Board to draft a regulation controlling and regulating Donation Boxes in the unincorporated areas of Manatee County.
• On October 31, 2014, the County Attorney’s Office prepared Ordinance 14-52 “Manatee County Unattended Donation Boxes Ordinance” which included input from Building and Development Services.
• On December 9, 2014, Building and Development Services presented the requested proposed Ordinance at the Commission Morning Work Session. The Commission had dialogue and asked the County Attorney’s Office to incorporate the suggestions discussed.
• The County Attorney’s Office prepared Ordinance 15-09 (previously Ordinance 14-52) which reflect the recommendations provided at the December 9, 1014 Commission Morning Work Session.
