Background Discussion

On or about April 23, 2003, the County entered into a Grant Award Agreement with Florida Communities Trust (FCT). Proceeds from the FCT grant to Manatee County were used to acquire land, defined as "Parcel A" on a portion of Bennett Park. Staff recently discovered a scrivener's error in the Grant Award Agreement which incorrectly bound Parcel B to the stipulations and requirements of the Agreement. Since Parcel B is not subject to the provisions of the Agreement, the parties have agreed to Amendment II which corrects the incorrect reference to Parcel B.
