PAGE             ITEM

 

27                    3J3                  REVISED SUMMARY (PZB) Summary: The resolutions will authorize a County tax exemption for the following historic properties located within the City of West Palm Beach: 506 46th Street, (property is privately owned for residential use); 218 Edgewood Drive, (property is privately owned for residential use); 221 Wildermere Road, (property is privately owned for residential use); 223 Belmonte Road, (property is owned for residential use); and 3215 Vincent Road (property is privately owned for residential use). If granted, the tax exemptions shall take effect January 1, 2023, and shall remain in effect for 10 years, or until December 31, 2032. The exemption shall apply to 100 percent of the assessed value of all improvements to the historic property, which resulted from restoration, renovation, or rehabilitation of the property. For the property at 506 46th Street, due to the timing of this submittal (relative to that of the Municipal Tax Exemption), the Municipal Tax Exemption runs from January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2031 but the County’s Exemption would run from January 1, 2023 to December 31,2023. The estimated total tax exempted for the 10 years ending December 31, 2031, is $120,008.49 $103,977.49.  Actual exemption amounts will be based upon the Countywide Millage rate on a yearly basis. It is estimated that approximately $12,000.85 $10,397.75 tax dollars will be exempted annually based on the 2023 Countywide Millage Rate. Accompanying each resolution is a City of West Palm Beach approved restrictive covenant, which requires the qualifying improvements be maintained during the period that each tax exemption is granted.  District 2 & 7 (DL)

Summary: This agreement allows AARP to assign seniors aged 55 and over, whose annual incomes are at 125% of the poverty level or below to work experiences. AARP will utilize seniors in work assignments within the Community Services Department (CSD). Seniors are given opportunities to gain meaningful work experiences and are compensated through AARP for the hours worked per week. Seniors can work up to 20 hours per week. Each senior is matched with work assignments based on their skills, experience, knowledge and abilities and are utilized on an as needed basis.

2.         Staff recommends motion to approve: Amendment No. 2 to Contract for Provision of Services with Palm Beach County Substance Abuse Coalition, Inc. (PBCSAC) (R2021-1591), to extend the end date from September 30, 2023 to September 30, 2024 and to amend, revise and replace portions of the contract for the provision of recovery support services to individuals, families, and others directly impacted by opioid and substance use disorder and to increase the FY 2023 budget from $550,000 to an amount not-to-exceed $1,250,000, with a projected annual appropriation of $1,250,000 for FY 2024 contingent upon a budgetary appropriation by the Board of County Commissioners for the term of this contract.  Summary: Amendment No. 2 with PBCSAC is necessary in order to expand Palm Beach County’s current network of two (2) recovery community centers (RCC) and allied local recovery community organizations (RCO) in both Delray Beach and Lake Worth Beach. The amendment expands the network in both Riviera Beach and Belle Glade. The countywide RCO established by the grant facilitates the development process and provides ongoing technical and administrative assistance to the local organizations. RCCs have been found to provide a unique function in helping participants build recovery capital and thereby increasing their quality of life and self-esteem, while decreasing their psychological distress. The network of RCOs and RCCs is a critical underpinning to achieving the BCC’s goal of establishing a readily accessible, integrated and coordinated person-centered, recovery-oriented system of care. They are also consistent with the “Palm Beach County Behavioral Health, Substance Use, Co-Occurring Disorder Plan Update” (Plan Update) recommendation to implement recovery supports to ease transitions and continuity of care, remove barriers and improve long-term recovery outcomes.

3.         Summary: LIHWAP funds allow Community Action Programs across the country to provide financial assistance to low-income households experiencing a water utility service emergency. The LIHWAP Federally Funded Subgrant Agreement No. E2016 (R2021-0783) requires that Palm Beach County Community Action Program (CAP) have agreements with local water utility vendors. On July 12, 2022, CAP received a Notice of Grant Award/Funding Availability (NFA) Modification from The State of Florida, Department of Economic Opportunity (FDEO) in the amount of $2,234,474 in LIHWAP funds. On August 23, 2022, FDEO issued a second NFA Modification in the amount of $2,819,509 in LIHWAP funds, for a total amount of $5,053,983. The FDEO provided a waiver to Palm Beach County, which offered time for the County to enter into agreements with utility vendors, prevent gaps in services or avoid residents being without water. Therefore LIHWAP funding became effective August 1, 2022, and lasts for two years after the effective date of the last date signed of each program vendor agreement. These agreements with local water utility vendors will allow CAP to issue payments on behalf of low-income clients, therefore avoiding the disconnection of essential services for eligible participants. Funds will be provided directly to local water utility vendors to assist qualified households. In Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2022, water utility services were prevented from disconnection or restored through LIHWAP to a total of 466 households. Over the course of the agreements, the Community Action Program anticipates serving approximately 13,500 households in total. LIHWAP provides much-needed relief to low-income families that spend a high portion of their household income on water utility services. Under the Federally Funded Subgrant Umbrella Agreement No. E2016, Section 5, letter F – Funding Consideration, The State of Florida’s and DEO’s performance and obligation to pay under this Agreement is contingent upon an annual appropriation by the Legislature of the State of Florida. DEO shall have final authority as to both the availability of funds and what constitutes an “annual appropriation” of funds. The lack of appropriation or availability of funds shall not create DEO’s default under this Agreement. If there is a state or federal funding shortfall, then the funding otherwise made available under this Agreement may be reduced.

A) Family Promise of North/Central Palm Beach County, Inc. (Family Promise), for the provision of short-term emergency shelter via hotels/motels, employment case management, rental assistance, permanent housing placement/retention bonus, and other supportive services for families experiencing homelessness, in an amount not-to-exceed $458,000, of which $153,000 is budgeted in FY 2023 with an anticipated annual allocation of $305,000 in the subsequent fiscal year; and

 

B) The Lord’s Place, Inc.

            Summary: On July 12, 2022, the BCC approved funding allocations for the Financially Assisted Agencies (FAA) Program. The agreements recommended in this item reflect dollar amounts included in the FY 2023 budget. Family Promise is a new agency, and under this new program will serve annually approximately 20 unduplicated family households experiencing homelessness. TLP will serve annually approximately 10 unduplicated individuals experiencing homelessness in the parks under this new program. Tyrina Pinkney, an employee with TLP, is a member of the HIV CARE Council.

5.         Staff recommends motion to approve: two (2) Subrecipient Agreements with The Salvation Army (TSA), for the period October 1, 2022 through September 30, 2023, in an amount totaling $132,038 in Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and Emergency Solutions Grant – CARES Act (ESG-CV) program funds:

 

A) TSA, in an amount not-to-exceed $100,000 in ESG funds, to provide emergency shelter to families with minor children experiencing homelessness; and

 

B) TSA, in an amount not-to-exceed $32,038 in ESG-CV funds, to provide homeless prevention services to individuals and families who are at imminent risk of becoming homeless.

 

Summary: On July 12, 2022, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approved the Palm Beach County Action Plan for Fiscal Year 2022-2023, which allocated $459,404 in ESG program funds for nonprofit agencies to assist people experiencing homelessness or who are at risk of homelessness, including those fleeing domestic violence. Palm Beach County also received additional ESG-CV funding to prevent, prepare for and respond to the pandemic among homeless individuals and families receiving homeless prevention assistance services. The finalization of the agreements was delayed due to an extended review of the agency’s scope of work and budget and TSA’s requirement that all negotiations or changes go through their national headquarters before approval. Under the new ESG agreement, TSA is expected to serve 12 unduplicated households in its emergency shelters. Under the new ESG-CV agreement, TSA is expected to serve five (5) unduplicated households. These federal ESG funds require a matching contribution, which will be provided by the funded agency. No County match is required.

(SEFBHN) (R2021-0301), for the period October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2023, to increase the total amount by $142,558 for a new contract amount not-to-exceed $1,240,438, to continue services under the Department of Justice (DOJ) Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulants, Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP) demonstration program. Summary: The DOJ approved a one-time no-cost project period extension for the COSSAP Award #2019-AR-BX-K023 with Palm Beach County Community Services Department (CSD) to provide an additional 12 months to complete the research for COSSAP. The Board of County Commissioners (BCC) authorized staff to execute a two-year agreement with SEFBHN for the period October 1, 2020 through September 30, 2022 to implement the COSSAP demonstration program in Palm Beach County. The DOJ approved a no cost extension of the initial grant award, with a new end date of September 30, 2023 to allow for the demonstration program to be completed. The BCC approved Amendment 1 (R2022-0931) on September 13, 2022. To date, COSSAP funding has been used to support a care coordinator/housing specialist to assist program participants in securing a recovery housing placement through an established Recovery Housing Voucher Program and Recovery Residence Provider Network. Recovery support services have been provided by a peer recovery support specialist, who has access to Recovery Support Services Funds to further assist participants. This intervention program has prioritized and expedited recovery support services for individuals at high overdose risk. The CSD’s Behavioral Health and Substance Use Disorders COSSAP program focuses on a comprehensive, person-centered, recovery-oriented approach with the goal of ensuring housing stability to support persons involved with the criminal justice system who have a substance use disorder.

3.         Summary:  The total cost of the project identified in the FIND WAP grant application is $1,600,000. This grant application requests $800,000 to fund up to (50%) of the redevelopment of the southern portion of Bert Winters Park. Grant project elements include renovation of the existing day use docks, parking and construction of new picnic facilities, canoe/kayak launch, parking, lighting, landscaping and associated infrastructure. If the FIND grant is awarded, the County will provide matching funds using Infrastructure Sales Tax (IST) funding. Due to grant-related items requiring timely execution by the County, staff is requesting Board of County Commissioners (BCC) approval for the County Administrator or designee to approve grant documents and for the Parks and Recreation Director to act as the Project Director and Liaison Agent for this project. The grant requires a Restrictive Covenant be recorded in public records dedicated to public boating for a period of thirty (30) years from date of completion. District 1 (AH)

 

4.         Staff recommends motion to approve: a conservation easement in favor of Palm Beach County for three sites in Riverbend Park totaling 15.98 acres. Summary: On March 10, 2015, the County approved a 4.90 acre Declaration of Conservation Easement (R2015-0334), which required the County to establish an upland tree mitigation bank. The Parks and Recreation Department is working closely with the Environmental Resources Management Department (ERM) to expand the Riverbend upland preserve/tree conservation bank. The proposed expansion includes three additional sites totaling 15.98 acres, which would bring the expanded preserve/tree mitigation conservation bank to 20.88 acres within Riverbend Park. This upland preserve/tree conservation bank establishes upland tree credits which the Parks and Recreation Department can draw against for future park projects.  Credits from this tree conservation bank can only be used to satisfy County Unified Land Development Code (ULDC), Article 14, Chapter C, Vegetation Preservation and Protection requirements. The Preserve Area Management Plan (PAMP) outlines the duties and responsibilities for managing this Conservation Easement. The Conservation Easement allows passive recreation, such as hiking, biking, equestrian trails and other recreational uses which have minimal impact on the natural resource, and is consistent with the long range development plans for Riverbend Park. It also ensures the tree mitigation area will remain in a natural state and will be maintained by the County in perpetuity. District 1 (AH)

S.        FIRE RESCUE

 

1.         Staff recommends motion to:

 

A)  ratify a FY 2022 Staffing for Adequate Fire and Emergency Response (SAFER) Grant application, electronically submitted to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on March 17, 2023, requesting $8,091,025 to fund 100% in years 1, 2 and 3 for 27 new firefighters, for a term of three years from the date of award;

 

B) ratify the designation of the County Administrator, or designee, to act as the County’s representative for the purpose of electronically signing and submitting the FY 2022 SAFER grant application, including Assurances and Certifications via the DHS FEMA website; and

 

C) authorize the County Administrator, or designee, to accept, approve, execute and submit, electronically or otherwise, on County’s behalf the grant award, representations, certifications, acknowledgments, assurances, standard forms and documents, reimbursement requests, amendments, time frame changes, and other necessary documents, that do not materially change the general scope of terms and conditions of the grant.

 

Summary:  This grant application requests $8,091,025 from DHS FEMA to fund 27 new firefighters to increase the daily staffing of 6 aerial/ladder units from 3 people to 4 people on each unit, as part of a pilot program. The total project cost identified in the grant application is $8,091,025. There is no required match for this grant for all three years. Due to the personnel coverage factor, the total number of firefighters required is 27. These 27 positions will be eliminated at the end of the grant, and pending a thorough evaluation of the pilot program may be submitted as a supplemental request through the budget process prior to the expiration of the grant. If awarded, the grant will provide funding to increase the daily staffing on each aerial/ladder unit; by implementing this staffing, fewer units will be needed for an initial response, therefore increasing unit availability for concurrent calls, which is essential to meeting national safety standards and mitigating risks to the community through prompt response times and increased unit availability throughout our service area and automatic aid areas.  Due to the preparation time, submittal deadlines, and BCC meeting dates, the grant application had to be submitted prior to full Board approval.

Summary:  This project consists of replacing the oversize vehicle warning system  located on the entrance to the PBI Terminal with a new more robust system. The project was advertised utilizing the County's competitive bid process and presented to the Goal Setting Committee on November 30, 2022. The Committee established an Affirmative Procurement Initiative (API) of price preference for Small Business Enterprise (SBE) contractors if their bid is within 10% of the lowest non-small business bid. On February 7, 2023, three (3) bids were received for this project and two (2) were determined to be responsive. The certified small business bidder submitting the lowest responsive, responsible bid was more than 10% of the lowest responsive bid. Horsepower located in Dade County has been identified as the lowest responsible/ responsive bidder in the amount of $696,969. The S/M/WBE participation for this contract is 0%. Pursuant to changes to Chapter 332, Florida Statutes, effective October 1, 2020, a governing body of a commercial service airport may not approve purchases of contractual services in excess of the Category Five threshold amount of $325,000 provided in Section 287.017, Florida Statutes, on a consent agenda.

B)  direct staff to negotiate the funding agreement; and

 

C)  authorize the County Administrator, or designee, to execute the funding agreement, amendments thereto, and all other documents necessary for project implementation.

 

SUMMARY:  The Lord’s Place, Inc. is a local 501(c) not-for-profit organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness by providing innovative, compassionate and effective services to men, women, and children in our community. The Lord’s Place has entered into a contract to purchase from Community Partners of South Florida a one (1) acre residential property located at 2865 Melaleuca Drive in unincorporated West Palm Beach. The property includes an existing single-family home and six (6) cottages which The Lord’s Place will operate as “Bill’s Place” to provide permanent housing for 15 older adults experiencing homelessness and behavioral health conditions.  Residents will receive safe housing, case management, recovery support, life skills instruction, adult education, job training and placement, and other supportive services.  Staff recommends a forgivable loan of $1,630,785 through the CDBG-CV program, funds would be used for the acquisition and rehabilitation.  CDBG-CV was provided through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The County received $9,322,419 in CDBG-CV funding.  The Pulte Family Charitable Foundation has pledged $2,000,000 to fund operational costs of the facility, and The Lord’s Place will be responsible for securing all necessary operational funding throughout the period of affordability.  The property will be restricted for occupancy by CDBG-CV qualifying populations for no less than 30 years. The funding agreement and related documents pursuant to these County funds will be between the County and The Lord’s Place, Inc. or its respective successors and/or assigns. To facilitate project implementation, staff requests authorization for the County Administrator, or designee, to execute the funding agreement and related documents.  These are CDBG-CV grant funds that do not require a local match.  District 3 (HJF)
