Background Discussion

On a monthly basis, a number of departments provide current data for the promulgation of the dashboard report.  The dashboard report delineates the activity of certain departments and functions and provides a quick overview of the activities and/or revenues for selected parameters within the county.  We continue to adjust these parameters based on input and the value of the data.

Fiscal year-end totals for FY15 show increases in activity in many departments compared to the prior year:

  • The Citizens Action Center reported a 6.4% increase over the prior year and a 31% increase from FY13.
  • Tourism tax revenues were up 11%, Crosley Estate up 4% and the Convention Center up 8%.
  • Residential building permits increased 5%.
  • Final subdivision plats totaled 32, compared to 29 the year before.
  • Library materials usage increased 3.5%.
  • Emergency calls to the 911 Center increased 8% over the prior year and increased 16% compared to FY13.
  • The No-Kill Save Rate for Animal Services increased by three percentage points, from 88% in FY14 to 92% in FY15.
  • Transit revenues increased 11.4%.
  • Ridership on the AMI Trolley was up 7.5% over the prior year and up 17% compared to FY13.
  • Solid waste received at the Landfill increased 1.5% over the prior year and 10% over FY13.
  • Facility electrical usage shows a savings of $95,000 from the prior year due to the implementation of the FPLS ESCO project and other energy saving efforts.

The dashboards are reported in a fiscal year format so that we can offer a closer comparison of outcomes to the budget cycle. 

Dashboard reports are also available on the county web site at  www.mymanatee.org  on the County Administrator’s webpage under "County Progress Reports."
