The Contractor is a Palm Beach County business.  The Small Business Enterprise (SBE) goal for the Project is 15%.  The SBE participation committed for the Project by the Contractor is 5% overall.

5.         Staff recommends motion to approve:

(Contractor), the lowest, responsive, responsible bidder, in the amount of $321,705 for the Glades Citizens Villas (Project), Project No. 2007905, located near the City of Pahokee contingent upon approval of the Contract documents by the State of Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO); and

SUMMARY: Approval of this Contract will allow for the construction of new storm sewers and drainage structures.  After review of the contingent items, AT&T advised that they would protect, adjust and support their facilities (bid items 26 & 27) thereby reducing the total Contract award amount by $5,000, from the original total of $326,705.  The Contractor is a Palm Beach County business and is applying for SBE certification. The construction contract, except for the utility work, is funded with Federal grant funds; therefore the Small Business Enterprise Ordinance does not apply to this Project.  Approval of this Contract is contingent upon DEO’s approval of the Contract documents.

3.         CONSENT AGENDA APPROVAL

 

 

D.        COUNTY ATTORNEY

 

1.         Staff recommends motion to approve:

 

A) a Settlement Agreement with Florida Airmotive, Inc., for an amount not to exceed $275,000; and

 

B) a Budget Transfer of $275,000 in the Airports Improvement and Development Fund from Reserves to provide budget to fund the settlement purchase of buildings and hangars.

 

SUMMARY:  Florida Airmotive is the fixed base operator of the Palm Beach County Park Airport (“Lantana Airport”) pursuant to a Lease Agreement (R86-712) (“Lease”) with the County. Florida Airmotive claims ownership of approximately 28 metal buildings and aircraft hangars located at the Lantana Airport based upon provisions in the Lease that allow Florida Airmotive to remove certain types of improvements at the end of the Lease term. The County filed suit against Florida Airmotive seeking declaratory judgment to determine whether the County or Florida Airmotive owns the disputed improvements at the Lantana Airport. The proposed Settlement Agreement provides for the purchase by the County of any interest that Florida Airmotive may have in the disputed improvements. Florida Airmotive will also attempt to obtain signed statements from current subtenants, disclaiming any ownership interest in the improvements (“Disclaimer of Interest”). The full settlement amount for all disputed improvements is $275,000. The settlement amount has been pro-rated on a per square foot basis to establish a price per building/hangar. For those improvements where a Disclaimer of Interest has not been obtained, the County will pay a reduced settlement amount of approximately 50% of the pro-rata purchase price. The disputed improvements range in size from approximately 1,558 to 10,292 square feet, comprising a total of approximately 128,708 square feet of improved building space.  Countywide (ATP)

Payment for the legal services in connection with the bond issuance will be as provided for in the Agreement.  Countywide (PFK)

 

 

3.         Staff recommends motion to approve: Amendment No. 2 to the Agreement (R2010-1324) with the law firm of Edwards Wildman Palmer LLP (formerly known as Edwards Angell Palmer & Dodge LLP) (“Attorney”), to provide bond counsel and related legal services for the refunding of Public Improvement Revenue Bonds, Series 2004, 2004A (Biomedical Research Park Project), and 2005A (Biomedical Research Park Project).  SUMMARY:  The law firm was selected as bond counsel for the above financing by the County Financing Committee at the February 14, 2012 meeting.  This Amendment No. 2 confirms that selection by amending the existing Agreement for bond counsel and related services between Palm Beach County and the law firm.  Payment for the legal services in connection with the bond issuance will be as provided for in the Agreement.

(R2011-1018), providing for the elimination of the minimum monthly guarantee. SUMMARY: This Amendment eliminates the provision in the Agreement that provided for payment of a minimum monthly guarantee of $2,500 per month.  Cloud 9 Wireless has determined that it is unable to guarantee monthly payments, but is willing to continue providing advertising sales services on a per campaign basis through the expiration of the Agreement on July 31, 2012.  All other terms and conditions of the Agreement will remain the same for the remainder of the contract, including the provision for payment of advertising concession fees on a per campaign basis.  Advertising campaigns have tended to be short term, making future revenues difficult to predict. The Agreement allows either party to terminate the Agreement for convenience.  If this Amendment is not approved, Cloud 9 Wireless has indicated that it will terminate the Agreement. If approved, it is anticipated that the concession will continue to generate revenues to the County of approximately $1,000 to $1,500 per month. The Agreement was approved as a one-year pilot program.  In the event the Department desires to continue to offer the concession opportunity after evaluating the results of the pilot program, a competitive solicitation will be issued.

S.        FIRE RESCUE 

 

1.         Staff recommends motion to approve: an Interlocal Agreement for Fire Vehicle Maintenance with the Town of Palm Beach for a period of ten (10) years. SUMMARY: This Agreement provides for the maintenance and emergency repair of the Town of Palm Beach’s Fire-Rescue emergency response apparatus by Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Support Services personnel.  Labor shall be calculated using the hourly rate listed as the Warranty Rate on the County’s Rate Schedule for Warranty, Vehicle and Staff charges in effect at the time of service.  Labor, parts, commercial repair and reimbursable insurance repairs will generate approximately $116,000 in external revenues which are expected to exceed the cost of the additional related operating expenses, estimated at $47,500 for FY 2012.  Countywide (SB)

 

 

U.        INFORMATION SYSTEMS SERVICES

 

1.         Staff recommends motion to approve:  an Interlocal Agreement with the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), an independent taxing district, at an estimated first year net revenue of $21,816, for an initial term of one (1) year, with automatic (1) year renewals unless notice given by any party.  SUMMARY: This Interlocal Agreement allows the SFWMD to access Palm Beach County (the “County”) network services on a cost sharing basis similar to the existing Interlocal Agreements between the County and various municipalities, Children’s Services Council, and the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.  There are two (2) planned connections to the County’s network. The first will serve as the SFWMDs’ backup Internet access and the second will provide connectivity to the SFWMD disaster recovery equipment located in the Network Access Point (NAP) of the Americas data center located in Miami.  In addition to the revenues the County will receive, it is estimated that this agreement will reduce SFWMD’s costs by $50K annually.  Florida LambdaRail will provide termination equipment and connection services at the NAP of the Americas. These monthly charges will be billed to SFWMD by the County. As this additional service requires an amendment to the existing FLR-PBC contract, that amendment is being submitted as a separate Agenda item.  The County will not incur any costs associated with this project other than staff time involved in planning and managing the project.  This agreement is similar to existing agreements with other municipalities and educational institutions for network services.  This Interlocal Agreement provides for disclosure of Article XII, Section 2-422, Palm Beach County Code, establishing the Office of the Inspector General.

2.         Staff recommends motion to approve: 

 

A) renewal of the County’s Excess Property, Liability and Workers’ Compensation  Insurance Program for the period April 1, 2012, through March 31, 2013, purchased through the County’s contracted broker, Arthur J. Gallagher Risk Management Services, Inc., under Contract No. 10-042R/LJ, for a total cost not-to-exceed $12,318,000; and

 

B) the County Self-Insured Retention Plan Document, as Amended and Restated.

 

SUMMARY: The County’s expiring Excess Property, Liability and Workers’ Compensation Insurance Program provides excess layers of property insurance totaling $200 Million inclusive of the County’s $1,000,000 self-insured retention, excess layers of liability insurance totaling $5 Million excess of the County’s $500,000 self-insured retention, and $2,000,000 of excess coverage for workers’ compensation inclusive of a $1,000,000 self-insured retention. The Program also includes various ancillary excess insurance policies covering damage to County-owned property resulting from flood, terrorism, boiler & machinery, and employee dishonesty. The coverage structure has been analyzed and configured to provide the best coverage terms at the most competitive prices.  The Self-Insured Retention Plan Document has been amended and restated to reflect corresponding excess coverages currently in effect. The projected 2012-2013 renewal figures reflect a much harder market in which some adjustments to existing coverage must be evaluated in order to procure the highest amount of insurance possible, while keeping costs as close to expiring premiums as possible.  The hardening market is attributable to worldwide catastrophic losses, and a newer, more conservative CAT modeling system that has been adopted by the insurance industry and the State of Florida. The County’s total insurable values have increased less than 1% this year to approximately $2.39 Billion. The cost of the program is also impacted by a variety of State-mandated surcharges and assessments that have increased in 2012. The total not-to-exceed cost of $12,318,000 represents no increase over the actual expiring premium.  Sufficient funds are budgeted in FY 2012 for this coverage. Countywide (TKF)

At start up, the Contractor will remove all existing advertising benches and replace them with modern American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant benches (with two waste containers for recycling). In addition, the surface areas at the benches will be brought up to current ADA standards all at no cost to the County. Thereafter the Contractor will maintain the benches, surrounding area, and handle waste pick up.  Monthly payment to the County will be based on the number of advertising benches in service each month.  Countywide (DR)

C.        Staff recommends motion to adopt: an Ordinance of the Board of County Commissioners of Palm Beach County, Florida, repealing Ordinance 2009-001 Palm Beach County Amendments to the Florida Building Code, 2007 Edition, Chapter 1 “Administration” and Section and Figure 1609.1 Basic Wind Speed Map of Palm Beach County, Appendix F “Proposed Construction Building Codes for Turf and Landscape Irrigation Systems” of the 2007 Florida Building Code, Plumbing Volume, with Palm Beach County Amendments “Exhibit A” of Ordinance 2009-002, and Sub-Section 7-36(B) of Article III,  Sections 7-52, 7-53 and 7-55 Of Article IV,  and Articles V, VII, VIII, X, And XI of the Palm Beach County Code of Ordinances; adopting the Palm Beach County Amendments to the Florida Building Codes (FBC) 2010 Edition Chapter 1 “Administration” (FBC-Building) and Flood and Wind Provisions (FBC-Building and Residential), and Appendix F “Construction Building Codes for Turf and Landscape Irrigation Systems” (FBC-Plumbing) WITH Palm Beach County Amendments, and Sub-Section 7-36(b) of Article III Palm Beach County Code of Ordinances; providing for applicability; providing for repeal of laws in conflict; providing for inclusion in the Code of Laws and Ordinances; providing for a savings clause; providing for severability; and providing for an effective date. SUMMARY: The Legislature adopted F.S. 553.73, mandating a Statewide Florida Building Code (FBC), and allowing local governments to adopt their own Administrative Chapter of the FBC, 2010 Edition, applicable in the unincorporated area of Palm Beach County, and those municipalities having an Interlocal Agreement for the provision of County plan review and inspection services. Significant change in this administrative chapter is the ability to place a non-ad valorem assessment on a property for costs associated with abatement of unsafe buildings and other entities. This chapter is based upon recommendations of the Palm Beach County Building Code Advisory Board.  Figures 1609 A, B, and C in the FBC are accurate for basic wind design to the County, and provides for local government to establish specific wind speed/wind borne debris lines using physical landmarks, whenever possible. As a result of landscape irrigation regulations adopted in the last code cycle, many cross connections of drinking water and irrigation systems have been abated, and proper water conservation designs have been implemented. Practical application brought forth some few areas where there was a redundancy of proper regulation. Those redundancies are being eliminated. The 2010 FBC will include flood resistant provisions applicable in flood hazard areas, a change from previous editions. The code refers to local floodplain management ordinances, that are required to be incorporated into the FBC 2010 Edition, in accordance with new legislation in 553.73, F.S. Unincorporated (AH)

SUMMARY:  Adoption of this Resolution will allow Palm Beach County (County) to assess the property owners of 181st Street North and 182nd Road North $20 per abutting foot for the water main improvements.

Assessments will be payable in 20 equal annual installments. The Town of Jupiter (Town) agreed to advance the funds for design and permits for the Project and will also fund the construction. The County has received a positive response from a majority of the property owners on both streets, indicating their willingness to be assessed for the water main.

A.        ADMINISTRATION (Cont’d)

 

2.         Staff recommends motion to: 

 

A) direct staff, following contractual presuit notice and dispute resolution requirements, to initiate litigation seeking a Declaratory Judgment Action and supplemental relief, including but not limited to the appointment of an independent receiver, as appropriate to resolve the County’s conflict over the Interlocal Agreement (R2009-1034) establishing the Glades Utility Authority (GUA);

 

B) adopt a Resolution of the Board of County Commissioners of Palm Beach County, Florida, declaring its intent to initiate presuit notice and dispute resolution procedures pursuant to Section 7.13 of the Interlocal Agreement, and to initiate intergovernmental conflict resolution procedures with the GUA, the City of South Bay, the City of Belle Glade, and the City of Pahokee, pursuant to Chapter 164, Florida Statutes (2012), in the event it is determined to be applicable to the present conflict; and declaring that an immediate danger to the health, safety, and welfare of the public requires immediate action, and that significant legal rights will be compromised if a court proceeding does not take place before complying with the provisions of the Florida Governmental Conflict Resolution Act; and

 

C) direct staff to initiate intergovernmental conflict resolution procedures during the pendency of litigation.

 

Summary:  To date, the GUA has not adopted a surcharge to address revenue shortfalls and therefore does not have a FY 2011-2012 budget.  The GUA remains in a perilous fiscal condition.  On January 24, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved all seven (7) negotiated absorption conditions agreed to by the Cities of Belle Glade and Pahokee, and established a deadline of February 15, 2012, for the City of South Bay to pass a Resolution agreeing to the absorption conditions with no additional requirements.  The City of South Bay failed to pass a Resolution by the February 15, 2012, date.  The BCC also further directed Staff to have no further negotiations with the Tri-Cities concerning absorption and to bring options to protect the Public interest with respect to the GUA, to the March 20, 2012, BCC meeting. 

 

Staff has reviewed all legal options with the County Attorney’s Office and believes seeking a Declaratory Judgment Action is in the best interest of the Public due to the failure of the City of South Bay to pass the required Resolution which would have avoided this litigation.

            B.        AIRPORTS

 

1.         Staff requests Board direction on:

 

A) renewal of Airport Ground Transportation Concession Agreement (Amendment) with Southeastern Florida Transportation Group, LLC (SEFTG) (R2005-1774), for three (3) additional years through September 30, 2015; or

 

B) issuance of a competitive solicitation for a ground transportation concession agreement for the provision of on-demand ground transportation services, including taxicabs, executive sedans, limousines and shared ride services, at the Palm Beach International Airport (PBIA).

 

SUMMARY:  The current agreement for on-demand airport ground transportation services expires on September 30, 2012.  The current agreement provides for an initial term of seven (7) years with one (1) – three (3) year option to renew at the County’s sole option. The Department is requesting the Board to approve: (i) the renewal of the current agreement; or (ii) the issuance of a competitive solicitation by the Department for a new agreement for on-demand ground transportation services.  The current agreement, or any new agreement, will require the concessionaire to provide a sufficient number of taxicabs, executive sedans, sedans, limousines and share ride services to meet the requirements of all persons requesting such services, during daily peak and non-peak periods and periods of heavy seasonal and holiday passenger traffic. If approved, the Amendment would renew the current agreement through September 30, 2015.  The current agreement requires SEFTG to pay concession fees equal to the greater of a per capita charge of $0.0885 per deplaned passenger or a minimum annual guarantee of $266,959; provides for adjustment of the per capita charge based on increases to SEFTG’s fares and rates; and provides for adjustment of the minimum annual guarantee based upon increases to the number of deplaned passengers. If the Board elects to approve the issuance of competitive solicitation in lieu of extending the current agreement, the solicitation will establish, as a minimum requirement, payment of concession fees at least equal to the amounts paid under the current agreement. The Amendment updates non-discrimination provisions to ensure compliance with recent changes to 49 CFR Part 23, which regulates airport disadvantage business enterprise (ACDBE) programs. The current agreement has an annual 17% ACDBE participation goal. SEFTG reported 20.67% ACDBE participation for Fiscal Year 2011.  If the Board approves issuance of a competitive solicitation, the solicitation will include an ACDBE goal established in accordance with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 23.  Regardless of whether the Board approves renewal of the current agreement or issuance of a competitive solicitation, non-concessionaire ground transportation providers will continue to be permitted to operate at PBIA on a pre-arranged basis subject to compliance with applicable Airport Rules and Regulations.

1.         Staff recommends motion to:

 

A) approve a phased opening beginning July 2, 2012, for the Senator Philip D. Lewis Center (Lewis Center);

 

B) authorize staff to complete contract negotiations with the following service providers and present contracts for BCC consideration within 30 days:  Gulfstream Goodwill Industries, Inc., Adopt-A-Family, Inc., and The Lord’s Place, Inc.; and

 

C) approve Budget Transfer of $1,208,184 in the Human Services, General Fund to establish FY 2012 funding for the Lewis Center, with $216,213 transferred from existing Financially Assisted Agencies (FAA) budget and the balance of $991,971 funded from the General Fund Contingency Reserve.

 

SUMMARY:  The Lewis Center will serve as the main point of access for homeless services in central Palm Beach County.  Facility operations and service provision will be contracted to three local non-profit organizations that are currently serving the homeless population in Palm Beach County and have demonstrated a strong commitment to the goals established in the BCC adopted Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness.  Gulfstream Goodwill Industries, Inc. will be the lead facility operator and will provide individual housing placement; ongoing support and oversight of the on-site interim housing.  Adopt-A-Family, Inc. will provide family engagement, housing placement and ongoing support; and The Lord’s Place, Inc. will provide navigation and employment services.  The County’s Homeless Outreach (HOT) teams and a Health Department staffed medical facility will also be located on site. A projected expenditure and revenue budget is included with this item.  Staff is recommending a budget of $1,312,532 for FY 2012 which includes start up costs and partial year funding for Lewis Center operations and required off-campus supportive housing. The estimated total annual operating cost for FY 2013 is approximately $4.8 Million and will be addressed in the FY 2013 budget process.   A portion of the funds required for FY 2012 is allocated in the current budget and the remainder of the required funding is being requested from general fund reserves.  The phasing plan anticipates opening all on-site services and one-third of the available beds on July 2, 2012, an additional one-third on October 1, 2012, and the final one-third open by January 2, 2013.

D.        ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY

 

1.         Staff recommends motion to adopt: a Resolution authorizing the Department of Economic Sustainability (DES) to submit a Section 108 Loan Fund Application for $7,240,130 to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD); authorizing the acceptance of awarded funds in order to assist established businesses in Palm Beach County; and, authorizing the County Administrator, or his designee, to execute the Loan Application documents.  SUMMARY:  This Application will increase the allocation for the County’s Section 108 Loan Program (Program) by $7,240,130.  The Program provides gap financing to businesses seeking to locate or expand in the County in order to create new jobs and help revitalize communities.  The Program gives priority to businesses in distressed areas of unincorporated Palm Beach County and then to businesses in distressed areas within municipalities in the County. To date, approximately $14 Million in loans have been made, generating 828 jobs and a five-year Economic Sustainability Impact of $602 Million.  An additional $5.5 Million in loans is currently being processed and is projected to generate 375 jobs and a five-year Economic Sustainability Impact of $119 Million.  The funding being applied for is projected to create 214 jobs and have a five-year Economic Sustainability Impact of $206 Million.  The Section 108 Loan funds are Federal grant funds which require no local match and the staff costs to implement the program are funded from are Ad Valorem sources.

E.        WATER UTILITIES

 

1.         Staff recommends motion to approve: Contract with Atlantic Environmental Systems, Inc. for the Royal Palm Beach Lift Station Remote Telemetry Unit (RTU) Upgrade in an amount of $753,125.  SUMMARY:  On December 13, 2011, five (5) bids were received for the Royal Palm Beach Lift station RTU Upgrade with Engineer Service Corporation (Jacksonville, Florida company) being the lowest bidder in the amount of $738,000. The second low bid was received from Atlantic Environmental (Palm Beach County Company) in the amount of $753,125. The Palm Beach County Local Preference Ordinance provides for award to the local company if the first and second bidders are within 5%. Accordingly, Staff is recommending award to Atlantic Environmental Systems, Inc. in accordance with the Local Preference Ordinance. This Contract will replace 41 lift stations RTU’s and associated lift station controls to match the Water Utilities standards.  The Small Business Enterprise (SBE) participation goal established by the SBE Ordinance is 15% overall.  This Contract with Atlantic Environmental Systems, Inc. provides for SBE participation of 100% overall.  Atlantic Environmental Systems, Inc. is a Palm Beach County company and certified SBE contractor.

                                    TIME CERTAIN 11:00 A.M.

1.         Staff requests Board direction regarding: a request by the Supervisor of Election (SOE) to immediately exercise the renewal option on a SubLease with Huttig Building Products (R2009-1211) for warehouse space utilized by the SOE for support operations and election day vote tabulation.  SUMMARY:  On July 21, 2009, the Board entered into a SubLease with Huttig for approximately 76,000 sf of warehouse space for the SOE for a term of five (5) years with a renewal option ending June 21, 2016.  At the same time, the Board entered into a Consent to SubLease with RREEF America REIT II Corp (RREEF or Landlord R2009-1212).  The Broker for the transaction was Robert Goldstein, President Hospitality Consultants Realty Services (HCRS) and the broker fees are owed by Huttig, pursuant to an agreement to which the County is not a party.  For the last several months, HCRS has been requesting that the County exercise the renewal option so that HCRS can be paid its brokerage fee. In addition, HCRS and SOE believe that by exercising the renewal option early, there will be financial benefits to the County, will relieve the County from liability, and better protect the SOE from the potential interruption in the use of the space in the event of Huttig’s bankruptcy. It is Staff’s position that there are no benefits to the County or SOE in exercising the option early.  On January 24, 2012, the Board directed Staff to open negotiations with RREEF regarding options beyond 2016; however, RREEF is unwilling to discuss an extension at this early date. Staff believes that RREEF’s refusal to open negotiations are for the same reasons that Staff desires to postpone negotiations - preservation of negotiating position based on  conditions and needs  just prior to the time that the option has to be exercised. For this reason, Staff is recommending that the plans for accommodating the SOE’s needs beyond June 2016 occur in the summer of 2013, and based on the conclusion of those discussions, consider exercising the option at that time.

2.         Staff recommends motion to approve:

 

A) a Second Amendment to Sub-Lease Agreement (R2011-1595, R2001-0656) with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County, Inc. (BGCPBC) for the Bill Bailey Community Center in Belle Glade to: (i) assign responsibility for payment of the water, wastewater and electricity to the County for the period of April 1, 2012, through September 30, 2012 (“County Obligations”), and (ii) obligate BGCPBC to reimburse the County for any expenditures on County Obligations in excess of $21,000; and 

 

B) a First Amendment to Agreement (R2001-0657) with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) for the operation of a Police Athletic League  (PAL) Program to provide for the payment of a use fee in the amount of $21,000 for the period of  April 1, 2012, through September 30, 2012.

 

SUMMARY:  On October 18, 2011, the Board approved a First Amendment to Sub-Lease Agreement with BGCPBC that provided for a lease extension to the Sub-Lease through October 30, 2015, for BGCPBC’s operation of various community based youth programs from the County’s Bill Bailey Community Center Gymnasium located within the City of Belle Glade.  PBSO also uses the premises for the operation of the PAL programs.  On December 16, 2011, BGCPBC notified the County of funding shortfalls which jeopardize the continuation of programs from this particular facility.  Staff believes it is important that the services continue to be provided from this facility not only for the youth, but also for community benefits as the only indoor recreational facility in this area and one of just a couple public assembly buildings in the Western Communities which can be used for post disaster recovery needs.  In order to address the funding shortfall through the end of this budget year, PBSO/PAL will pay the County a $21,000 use fee from non ad valorem sources. Between now and September 30, 2012, BGCPBC as well as the County and PBSO Staff will attempt to identify alternate sources of funding for the utility costs (approximately $80,000 annually) which will likely include the requests of the BGCPBC for financial assistance through other County programs and/or Staff identifying these costs as an unfunded existing program requirement for the Board to consider as part of the budget process.  After September 30, 2012, the funding obligations of both the County and PBSO/PAL will expire and BGCPBC will once again be obligated to pay for the utilities, which may force a decision on whether BGCPBC can continue its programming.  All other terms of both the Sub-Lease and the PBSO/PAL Agreement remain in effect and unchanged.  (FDO Admin) District 6 (HJF)

3.         Staff recommends motion to authorize:

 

A) Staff to negotiate an option agreement with NewKita Group, Inc., for the donation of an 11.8 acre parcel of land adjacent to the Palm Glades Apartment Complex in unincorporated Belle Glade for the development of a multi-use recreational and community center complex; and

 

B) Staff to obtain an appraisal of the County property at the County’s expense, estimated not to exceed $5,000.

 

SUMMARY:  The County owns an 11.8 acre parcel of vacant property adjacent to Palm Glades Apartment Complex in unincorporated Belle Glade.  The County has no identified use for the property, and it is unlikely that the property could be sold in the foreseeable future for anywhere close to its appraised value of $373,000.  NewKita Group is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to enhance personal enrichment and community unity through recreational activities, sports, health, fitness, entertainment and education. NewKita has submitted a proposal to develop a multi-use complex which would consist of a two-part 50,000 square foot building which will house 3,400 to 4,000 theatre style seats, two (2) full size multi-purpose courts to accommodate tennis, basketball, volleyball, soccer, dance, skating, arena football as well as a hospitality area, fitness center, conference rooms, youth activity center, and two (2) full service locker rooms. NewKita’s proposal is extremely aggressive but due to the lack of indoor recreational and public assembly facilities in the Western Communities, the budget limitations which prevent the County or City from providing such facilities at any time in the future combined with low probability of a sale of the property for anywhere near its assessed value; Staff believes that it is in the community’s best interest to allow NewKita the opportunity to reach its goal. The option agreement envisioned would commit the County to a donation of the property in the event that NewKita met specific timing and fundraising milestones. Because the assessed value of the property exceeds $25,000, an appraisal is required.  NewKita has requested that Staff seek Board approval for the funding required for the appraisal. Funding is available in the Public Building Improvement Fund Account identified for appraisals and due diligence on otherwise unfunded projects. Based on the outcome of the appraisal, it is possible that the Option Agreement will need to be reviewed by the Property Review Committee in advance of it being presented to the Board for consideration.

13                    3E-3                REVISED SUMMARY: Staff recommends motion to approve: A) Amendments to two (2) Financially Assisted Agencies contracts extending the contracts to September 30, 2012 and increasing funding by $339,156, for the indicated services: B)SUMMARY: The information submitted reflects part of the total $13,229,511 funding approved by the Board of County Commissioners for the Financially Assisted Agencies Program for FY 2012. Funds for the services provided by Comprehensive Alcoholism Rehabilitation Programs and The Lord’s Place are part of the Homeless Resource Center allocation in the Homelessness Service Category.  The use of these funds is recommended to ensure continuity of services prior to and during the Homeless Resource Center start-up. The AAA funds are provided annually, in an amount determined by the BCC, to secure state and federal grant funds for programs serving seniors.  Countywide (TKF) (Community Services)

 

16                    3H-1               REVISED SUMMARY: This License Agreement will allow SFWMD to utilize up to seventy-five (75) parking spaces at Lake Lytal Park while SFWMD works on a permanent plan to provide for its parking needs at its administrative headquarters complex, which is located adjacent to Lake Lytal Park.  Use will be limited to employees for the parking of personal automobiles between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., excluding weekends and County holidays. SFWMD’s use of the parking spaces is during the times of day and week that do not interfere with the public’s use of the facilities at Lake Lytal Park.

17                    3I-1                 REVISED TITLE: Staff recommends motion to approve: an Agreement with Oxygen Development, L.L.C. (Oxygen) in the amount of $100,000 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds for the period March 6, 2012 March 20, 2012, to March 6, 2013 March 19, 2013.  (DES)

 

17                    3I-2                 REVISED TITLE:    Staff recommends motion to approve: an Agreement with the City of Belle Glade in the amount of $336,000 for the period of March 20, 2012, to November 15, 2013 December 15, 2013.  (DES)

(Admin/OSBA) (Waiting for executed contracts from vendor)

 


37                    5G-1               ADD-ON: Staff requests Board direction: regarding a proposed settlement agreement and ordinance amendments to the Inspector General Ordinance. Should the Board direct staff to accept the settlement and ordinance amendments, the Board should also appoint two (2) individuals to serve on the Ordinance Drafting Committee to expedite the ordinance amendment process. SUMMARY: Proposed amendments to the ordinance would provide for a contract fee to defray in part the expenses of the Inspector General (IG) office.  As a regulatory fee, the contract fees collected can only be used to pay for IG inspection, audit and other oversight operations tied to contract activities of the County and cities.  The cities have refused to pay any amount to fund the IG Office beyond the contract fees they would collect, leaving the County to fund the balance of IG operations.  Dade County employs the contract fee as a method of partially offsetting IG operation costs.  The contract fee was originally employed by the County Commission to apply to County government operations only, but was discontinued several months after implementation due to administrative costs. The proposed settlement agreement would end all litigation between the cities, the Clerk and Comptroller, and the County.  As part of the settlement, the cities have tentatively offered to provide some amount of funding to offset the operational costs of the IG office pending full implementation of the contract fee system. As of this writing, however, no concrete proposal to provide such funding has been offered.  Countywide (LB) (County Attorney)
