Sarasota County has retained an independent registered municipal advisor. Sarasota County is represented by and will rely on its municipal advisor Public Financial Management, Inc. / PFM Financial Advisors LLC (PFM) to provide advice on proposals from financial services firms concerning the issuance of municipal securities and in specific limited circumstances municipal financial products. This certificate may be relied upon until May 21, 2018. Proposals may be addressed to Sarasota County Office of Financial Management, 1660 Ringling Blvd., 4th Floor, Sarasota, FL, 34236. If the proposal received will be seriously considered by Sarasota County, the entity will share the document with its municipal advisor.
