Hurricane Shutters
Shutters can only be installed, opened, or ready for use if and when the
National Weather Service has issued a hurricane watch for Manatee County.  All storm shutters must be removed from visible site within 72 hours after such hurricane watch expires or is otherwise no longer in effect.
