Jeanne' Detweiler, Solid Waste Enforcement Superintendent, ext. 8013
Gus DiFonzo, Deputy Director, Utilities, ext. 5473
Mike Gore, Director, Utilities, ext. 5323

Action Requested
Authorize execution of debris management interlocal agreements with City of Bradenton, City of Palmetto, City of Bradenton Beach, City of Holmes Beach, and City of Anna Maria.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Section 163.01, Florida Statutes, the Florida Interlocal Cooperation Act of 1969 as amended.

Background Discussion
On October 25, 2005, Manatee County entered into interlocal agreements with the local municipalities to effectively coordinate debris collection and disposal post disaster such as a hurricane.

The agreements served to comply with FEMA requirements for reimbursement costs.

The 2005 interlocal agreements have become obsolete and new ones have been prepared and executed by each municipality.

There are no substantive changes in the new agreements. Contact information has been made less specific, incorporating a position or title rather than an actual named individual.

The Town of Longboat Key and Trailer Estates Special District have independent contracts with vendors for debris management services.

Authorization for the Chairman to execute the agreements is being requested in order to comply with FEMA requirements for post disaster reimbursement.
