Background Discussion

A Contract for Permanent Easements was established through the efforts of the Manatee County Attorney's Office and consequently executed by Florida Power & Light Company for Easement Agreements required for roadway improvement projects at Ellenton-Gillette Road and Mendoza Road.

The roadways intersecting the railroad crossings have deteriorated, require rehabilitation, and upgrades to facilitate safe crossing.

An amount of $.52 per square foot was agreed upon for a 13,543 square foot easement parcel at the Ellenton-Gillette railroad crossing and a 17,619 square foot easement parcel at the Mendoza Road railroad crossing.  The agreed pricing is based on a comparative contract previously accepted by the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners on May 11, 2010 for a similar project with same ownership.
