In July 2002, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners approved Ordinance 02-116, imposing a half percent Charter County Transit System surtax, and Ordinance 02-117, creating the Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust, contingent on the outcome of the November 5, 2002 referendum.
Ordinance 02-116 defines how the surtax is to be spent which includes a list of transit and road projects known as the People’s Transportation Plan.
Ordinance 02-117 creates a Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust (CITT) with certain powers over the use and expenditure of the surtax proceeds. See Ordinance 02-117.
The ordinance also calls for 20 percent of surtax proceeds to be distributed to municipalities based on population. Each municipality must use at least 20 percent of their share of the surtax on transit-related improvements. Title XIV, Chapter 212 of Florida Statutes defines the purposes for which municipalities may expend their portion of surtax proceeds.
