Travel Authorization for FY 2014-2015 for the Board of County Commissioners


Contact and/or Presenter Information

Mitchell O. Palmer, County Attorney

Patricia Nolan, Legal Office Administrator, ext. 3750

Action Requested
Adopt Resolution R-14-125 authorizing members of Board of County Commissioners to travel out of the County to conduct business for, and on behalf of, Manatee County for FY 2014-2015.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Board of County Commissioners Travel Policy currently requires approval for travel out of the County.

Background Discussion
Members of the Board of County Commissioners find it necessary to travel out of Manatee County on County business from time to time. Due to the necessity of this travel, the time constraints involved in getting specific travel approved, and the costs in time and materials in getting travel approved, it is appropriate to provide authority to travel out of Manatee County on County business on an annual basis.
