MANATEE COUNTY, FL (April 16, 2020) – Manatee County Commissioners will hold another virtual meeting tomorrow, April 17 at 1 p.m. to consider a seven-day extension of a supplemental local emergency resolution intended to protect public safety by preventing the spread of COVID-19.

As part of the measures Manatee County Government is taking to protect public health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, Manatee County Board of County Commissioners are holding virtual meetings via video conference. Members of the public and media can watch the meeting live on and on Manatee Government Access (MGA) Spectrum channel 644, Verizon channel 30 and Comcast channel 20.

Commissioners will hold their first regular meeting via video conference on Tuesday, April 21. The agenda for that meeting will be posted later today on the County's website.

To enter your comments into the public record this and upcoming meetings, members of the public may do so in one of two ways:

  • You may deliver your comments in person to Commissioners during the meeting in the first floor Patricia M. Glass County Commission Chambers of the Manatee County Administrative Building, 1112 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton. If you choose this option, you must adhere to the CDC's social distancing guidelines.
  • You may fill out an online comment form in advance of the meeting. Be sure to include your name and submit your remarks by the meeting deadline. County Commissioners may not receive your comments before the meeting if the form is submitted after the deadline.

The supplemental emergency resolution created a temporary local curfew and provides local law enforcement agencies the ability to enforce group gathering restrictions on public property, in conjunction with Governor DeSantis' Executive Order 20-91 & 20-92.
