Background Discussion
  • This is a requirement to allow the federal project for renourishment of Cortez Beach to proceed providing for access by a contractor retained by the Federal Government to work on County property.
  • Anna Maria Shore Project Project is a federally authorized and approved beach renourishment project scheduled to be completed on or before September 2014 for Anna Maria Island.  The project encompases work beginning at 79th St. in Holmes Beach and extends south to the third southern most beach erosion control groin along the County owned property known as Cortez Beach. Site map attached.
  • The attached Right-of-Entry agreement is an additional assurance required by the ACOE to allow a federal contractor to enter upon Cortez Beach to complete the federal renourishment project at the location. 
  • The County Attorney's Office has reviewed the Right-of-Entry agreement and has no objection to its approval. (See attached).
  • Time is of the essence to execute the document.  Please see attached leter dated August 30, 2013, from Charlie Hunsicker to ACOE.
