(R2003-1543) in the amount of $1,475,068.27 to increase the cost of the PBSO Aviation Unit Facility establishing a total Guarantee Maximum Price (GMP) of $5,650,000.  Summary:  This project consists of a new hangar for PBSO (with a sublease to West Palm Beach Police) and relocation of the existing fuel facility to a location acceptable to the Department of Airports.  On September 12, 2006, the Board approved Amendment No. 10 with Catalfumo Construction, Ltd. (R2006-2007) for construction management services for the construction of a 16,320 square foot Aviation Unit Facility, in the amount of $4,174,931.73.  This price was based on a conceptual program absent of detailed plans.  Subsequent to approval, the design development process unveiled unforeseen code requirements, additional operational considerations, and airport-related constructability issues which impacted the scope of the project.  These factors resulted in increased costs beyond those established in the original price. Amendment No. 12 encompasses these additional costs with a revised completion time of 335 days for the hangar and 90 additional days for the fuel tank relocation.  The SBE goal for this project is 15%.  Catalfumo is aware of the SBE requirement and has reconfirmed to staff its commitment to exceed that goal.  Catalfumo’s builder’s risk insurance will include wind coverage with a 10% deductible, which has been approved by Risk Management.  (Capital Improvements Division)  District 2  (JM)

4.         PUBLIC HEARINGS - 9:30 A.M.  (Motion to receive and file: Proof of publication)

 

 

            A.        Staff recommends motion to adopt:  an Ordinance of the Board of County Commissioners of Palm Beach County, Florida, granting an exemption from certain ad valorem taxation to encourage economic development in the County for Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc., an expansion of an existing business; providing for a finding that requirements have been met; providing for the amount of revenue available from ad valorem tax sources for the current fiscal year; providing for the amount of revenue lost by virtue of the economic development ad valorem tax exemptions currently in effect; providing for the estimated revenue lost attributable to the exemption granted to Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc.; providing for the period of time for which the exemption will remain in effect and the expiration date of the exemption; providing for annual reporting requirement; providing for applicability; providing for inclusion in the Code of Laws and Ordinances; providing for severability; providing for repeal of laws in conflict; and providing for an effective date.  SUMMARY:  The Economic Development Ad Valorem Tax Exemption Ordinance for Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc. will grant an ad valorem tax exemption for 100% of the assessed value of all qualifying tangible personal property acquired and added improvements to real property for four (4) years, excluding land.  The Property Appraiser certified Florida Turbine Technologies, Inc. as an expansion of an existing business and estimated that $26,153 in expansion revenues would be lost during the current fiscal year.  The approximate revenue lost over four (4) years would be $104,612.  However, the actual revenue lost in the years 2007 – 2010 may differ because the millage rate and the Property Appraiser’s value of the improvement may vary.  The applicant requested an exemption for ten (10) years, which is the maximum period permitted under the program.  The applicant qualifies for an exemption for five (5) year based upon a formula of jobs created and salaries paid.  Staff recommends an exemption for four (4) years.  The estimate of assessed taxable value on the tax roll is identified as $5,159,958 for improvements to real property and $950,545 for personal property, but the estimate of actual tax dollars lost to the County if the exemption is granted is $26,153 for the year 2007.  Countywide  (DW)

B)  approve a Work Authorization No. 2 to AKA Services, Inc., under the Water Utilities Department Continuing Construction Contract (R2007-0357) in the amount of $90,645.

 

SUMMARY:  Petitions in favor of the installation of a potable water main have been provided by 75% of the property owners in the Evans Lane project area.  The project will serve nine (9) residential properties currently on private wells.  Individual assessments of $108.39 per front foot are based on 100% of the assessable cost and may be paid over twenty (20) years with equal annual payments of principal and 6½% interest.  The total project cost is $104,762.36 and includes the costs of surveying, design, drafting, permitting, construction, inspection, administration and construction contingency.  The Water Utilities Capital Fund will cover the $27,541 cost to connect the water main along Evans Lane.  The project will be constructed utilizing a Work Authorization under the Water Utilities Department Continuing Construction Contract with AKA, Inc. (R2007-0357).  (WUD Project No. 06-190)  District 5  (MJ)

A.        ADMINISTRATION

 

                                    TIME CERTAIN - 11:00A.M.

                        1.         Welcome to the Keith Allan, HM Consul General; Ximena Prelle, Vice Consul Trade and Investment; and Ilian Marticorena, Vice Consul Trade and Investment from the British Consulate.  The World Trade Center of Palm Beach is hosting the FAM Tour.

 

 

                        2.         Staff recommends motion to approve:  an Amendment to the local policies developed to initiate and administer a revolving business loan program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development=s (HUD) Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Section 108 Loan Guarantee Program.  SUMMARY:  HUD approved Palm Beach County's request for Section 108 funding on September 26, 2002.  The program was developed to create a dedicated source of loan funding for use by businesses, investors, communities and non-profit community and economic development organizations to implement business ventures which will create well-paying jobs and help to revitalize local communities.  The proposed Amendment to these policies is intended to institute a change in the mission statement and program objectives to reflect that the program will be solely administered by the Office of Economic Development. Additionally, the changes will provide additional safeguards to the County and will make the program more user-friendly to the business community.  Other changes will provide clarity on the loan fees and costs and on the eligible activities permitted by the program.  Because this Amendment will not impact Palm Beach County's HUD-approved underwriting guidelines, HUD review and approval is not required.  The proposed Amendment will also create a change in the format and layout of the existing Community Development Business Loan Application. Countywide  (DW) 

 

 

            B.        ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT

 

                        1.         Staff recommends motion to accept:  the Donation of a 78.2-acre preserve area from Carleton Oaks Homeowners Association, Inc. (the HOA) to be incorporated into the Loxahatchee Slough Natural Area (LOS) and managed by the County’s Department of Environmental Resources Management (ERM), subject to: 1) the preserve area being brought into compliance with the applicable South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACOE) permits; 2) the HOA making a $20,000 one time contribution towards the perpetual maintenance of the preserve; and 3) satisfactory completion of County due diligence.  Summary:  On November 10, 2006, the HOA submitted an Application for the Acceptance of Conservation Lands for their 78.2-acre preserve area.  As proposed in their application and conditioned above, the HOA will meet all of the nine (9) primary criteria listed in the policy prior to closing, except for only partially meeting the financial commitment (No. 8) and public access (No. 7).  The one time donation of $20,000 will not be sufficient to fund perpetual land management (currently estimated at $15,000 per year) and the conservation easement will be modified post-closing to allow for public access.

A)  an Agreement between Palm Beach County and Frenchman’s Yacht Club Developers, LLC, for resolution of a breach of contract claim arising out of a settlement in the eminent domain matter styled Palm Beach County v. Hartsel Ranch Corp, et al., Case No. 501996CK008184XXXXMB, in the amount of $100,000; and

 

B)  a Budget Amendment of $100,000 in the County Transportation Trust Fund to recognize the developer contribution and increase the appropriation to fund the Agreement.

 

SUMMARY:  The County acquired Parcels 1, 2, 123, 1E and 2C for improvement to the southeast corner of Prosperity Farms Road and Donald Ross Road pursuant to an Agreed Order of Taking entered on January 28, 1997.  A Stipulated Final Judgment was entered on September 3, 1997, with the stipulation that the County was to install and maintain a fully directional traffic signal, with turn arrows at the existing main entrance to Frenchman’s Marina (n/k/a Frenchman’s Yacht Club Developers, LLC) on Donald Ross Road.  Subsequently, the City of Palm Beach Gardens required that the signal be a mast-arm type, which is considerably more expensive than what the County envisioned (but did not identify) in the Stipulated Final Judgment.  The parties have reached a conditional settlement whereby Frenchman’s will pay $100,000 towards the cost of the mast-arm signal, subject to the approval of the Board of County Commissioners.  District 1  (AJM)

(Callery) and Seminole Improvement District for acquisition of .446 acres, at no cost, in connection with construction of the County’s Acreage Communities’ facilities.  Summary:  On June 20, 2006, the Board approved a Settlement Agreement (R2006-1177) with Callery and on September 5, 2006, the County acquired a total of approximately 12.66 acres (12.02 site and .644 access road) from Callery for development of County facilities (fire station and library).  The property is located west of Seminole Pratt across from the Grove Market Shopping Center, in unincorporated Loxahatchee.  As provided in the Settlement Agreement, the County and Callery agreed to relocate the proposed fire station approximately 200 feet west which requires a 200 foot (.446 acres) extension to the currently designated access road. This Road Extension Agreement provides for Callery to convey the additional right-of-way required for the road extension.  Callery will have the first right of refusal to repurchase the property, at the then current fair market value, should the County decide to sell all or any portion of the road within the first 20 years from the date of conveyance.  This Road Extension Agreement provides for Callery to pay all closing costs and to reimburse the County $51,069.35 at closing for the re-design costs associated with the relocation of the fire station.  Closing is scheduled to occur within ten (10) days of Board approval.  Subsequent to the conveyance to the County, the entire access road will be dedicated for use as public road right-of-way.  Should Callery develop its property adjacent to the access road, the County will convey the entire access road property to Seminole Improvement District.  (PREM)  District 6  (JMB)

                        2.         Staff recommends motion to:

 

A)  approve a First Amendment to Lease Agreement (R2001-0582) with Bedner Farm, Inc. for 262 acres in the Ag Reserve; and

 

B)  adopt a Resolution finding that an extension of the Lease Agreement with Bedner Farm, Inc. is in the best interest of the County.

 

Summary:  On June 19, 2001, the Board approved a contract with Bedner Farm, Inc. to acquire approximately 262 acres in the Ag Reserve (R2001-0582).  Simultaneously with the closing, the County leased the property back to Bedner Farm for a term of ten (10) years at an initial rental rate of $550/acre/year.  Rent is currently $600/acre/year.  The Lease will expire in 2011.  Bedner Farm is operated by the Bedner family which wants to ensure that the younger members of the family will have the ability to continue farming.  In addition, they desire to make improvements to their facilities in order to meet current more stringent FDA requirements for food handling and processing.  Their planned expansion and renovation of their packing plant will require a significant financial investment which can not be recovered over the four (4) years remaining on their Lease.  Consequently, the Bedner’s have requested an extension of their Lease for an additional twelve (12) years until 2023.  This First Amendment to Lease Agreement provides Bedner Farm, Inc. twelve (12) additional options to extend the term of the Lease, each for a period of one (1) year.  Rent during the extended term will be adjusted to fair market value as determined by appraisal and updated every 3-5 years.  The Resolution finds that the extension of the Bedner Lease is in the best interests of the County based upon the following facts: 1) a major element of the Ag Reserve Acquisition Program was to ensure continued agricultural operations in the Ag Reserve; 2) continuity of farming operations assists in preserving agricultural operations in the Ag Reserve;  3) extension of the Bedner Lease to maintain continuity of existing farming operations; and  4) the County will receive fair market value rent as determined by appraisal during the extensions.  (PREM)  District 5  (HJF)
