Manatee County Accepting Applications for Children


MANATEE COUNTY – Manatee County is accepting applications to fill three seats on the Children’s Services Advisory Board (CSAB) which advises and makes recommendations to the Board of County Commissioners regarding priorities and expenditures of the County's dedicated millage for children’s services.

The CSAB is comprised of 13 members who are appointed by the Commission to serve three-year terms.  The following positions are open:

  • Two child advocates not affiliated with any agency receiving County funds; and
  • One member of the NAACP.

Members serve on a volunteer basis.  Members must be residents of Manatee County and meet the qualifications of an elector.  Members of the CSAB are governed by the State of Florida Code of Ethics, which requires disclosure of conflicts of interest and prohibits voting on measures or participating in matters which present a conflict.

Members must disclose any employment with or position as an officer or director of any entity that applies for or receives funds from the County millage dedicated to children’s services.  Members must also disclose any affiliation of the member or the member’s spouse with any organization that has applied for children’s services funding within the last calendar year.

The CSAB meets the third Wednesday of each month at 3 p.m. on the fourth floor of the Manatee County Administrative Center, 1112 Manatee Ave. West, Bradenton.  The board may also meet weekly on Wednesdays during the annual program funding review process (March through May).

Applications are due Friday, Sept. 5, 2014, and are available online at http://www.mymanatee.org/home/government/board-of-commissioners/advisory-boards.html.  Additional information concerning the Children’s Services Advisory Board may be obtained by calling Andy Guyre or Susan Ford at (941) 749-3030, or by emailing andy.guyre@mymanatee.org or susan.ford@mymanatee.org.
