Manatee County has announced a new program to maintain local canals and waterways impacted by the August red tide outbreak. The Nets to Neighbors campaign will provide local homeowner associations and neighborhoods with nets and buckets for local cleanup efforts. Manatee County will continue its daily cleanup of public beaches and parks on Anna Maria Island. The County now will move to a maintenance effort. Neighborhoods or homeowner associations can join the Nets to Neighbors campaign or request a dumpster by calling the County's red tide hotline, (941) 749-3547. With fewer incoming calls the County's red tide hotline will no longer be staffed on weekends. Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources will host another volunteer cleanup event of Palma Sola Causeway on Sat., September 1 at Palma Sola Causeway boat ramp from 7:30am to 9am. Parks and Natural Resources staff will provide basic masks, buckets and gloves. The County’s public resource for updates on these cleanup efforts are posted daily at the website below.
