Background Discussion
  • The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has encouraged the creation of, and has agreed to provide funds toward, a unified regional Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) for Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
  • In May 2005, the Florida Department of Transportation, Sarasota County, Manatee County, the City of Sarasota, and the City of Bradenton entered into an Interlocal Agreement for cooperation and coordination in the operation of a Unified Intelligent Transportation Management System. The May 2005 Interlocal Agreement defines a proportional share and allocation of costs, based on population.
  • City of Palmetto will have the ability to conduct traffic signal management out of the Traffic Management Center located within Manatee County's Public Safety building.
  • City of Palmetto has agreed to participate in the operation and maintenance of the communication network and connected traffic control devices.
  • Interlocal Agreements between Manatee County and other stakeholders were approved by the Board of County Commissioners on June 7, 2011 (City of Bradenton) and November 19, 2013 (Sarasota County and City of Sarasota).
  • City of Palmetto and the Manatee County Public Works staff have negotiated the terms and conditions of this Agreement.
  • City of Palmetto and Manatee County desire to enter into an Interlocal Agreement providing for the participation and sharing of personnel engaged in the operation and maintenance of the Traffic Management Center and related infrastructure. City of Palmetto will bear its proportional share of the ongoing operational and maintenance costs of the Traffic Management Center associated with such operation, and proportional allocation shall be based upon population pursuant to the May 2005 Interlocal Agreement.
