6A RESOLUTIONS  
6B POLICY MATTERS FOR DISCUSSION BY THE BOARD  
6B1  
  100739 Discussion Item     Carlos A. Gimenez        
  DISCUSSION ON THE DETAILS OF THE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING OR OTHER WRITTEN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE COUNTY AND JMH REGARDING THE $80 MILLION CASH ADVANCE AND MANAGEMENT WATCH Presented
6B2  
  100868 Discussion Item     Dennis C. Moss        
  DISCCUSSION RE: FY 2009-10 EXPENDITURE REDUCTIONS Presented
  REPORT: Chairman Moss commented on the Administration’s recommendation to close the Boot Camp and requested the County Attorney address Commissioner’s concerns during discussion of that item (agenda item 11A12).

Commissioner Martinez noted the Boot Camp program was successful in the Correction’s system and asked for an explanation on the fund appropriations.

County Attorney Cuevas explained the budget adopted by the County Commission is considered a direction to a County department to implement that budget. He further noted policy prerogatives that County Administration had to follow were based on decisions made by the County Commission, which, in turn, determined what action(s) had to be taken by a particular department.

Following a discussion on County Administration’s flexibility in making budgetary decisions and the need to maintain funding for the Boot Camp, County Attorney Cuevas clarified that County Administration recommended to discontinue funding for that program and without policy direction from the County Commission the Administration had the ability to do so.

Commissioner Heyman suggested the Boot Camp funding be taken from another area in the Correction’s Department that was not working effectively.

A discussion ensued regarding County Administration’s authority to administer funds within the confines of the budget approved by the County Commission.

With regards to the Boot Camp funding, County Attorney Cuevas noted it was not a specific line item but was included in a program category with a particular amount attached to that category.

County Manager Burgess explained that money was not being shifted; that these were reductions that had to be made in order to maintain a balanced budget and legislation that obligated funding for a Boot Camp would be unenforceable.

Concerns were expressed with County Administration’s recommendation to discontinue funding for the Boot Camp program in the middle of the budget year without prior discussion with the County Commission.

Based on comments on the need for the County Commission to specify particular programs that they wished to maintain funding for prior to approving the County’s budget, County Attorney Cuevas advised that any policy directives made by the County Commission at that time were binding and County Administration was obligated to abide by them.

Following further discussion on the budget process, Commissioner Jordan asked the County Attorney to prepare legislation under her sponsorship requiring that future mid-year budget adjustments or expenditure reductions be submitted for County Commission approval before being implemented.

  REPORT: Commissioner Martinez noted that Boot Camp was an excellent program; however, the County Commission needed to take funds from another program in order to maintain it.

Chairman Moss expressed support for funding the Boot Camp through the end of the current fiscal year and noted future funding needed to be secured through the County’s budget process.

Commissioner Heyman noted that Boot Camp was a sentencing option for judges to use as an alternative to youth detention the program should be supported on its success. She expressed support for funding this program through the end of the fiscal year. She asked County Manager Burgess to identify alternatives for the Corrections Department to reduce costs and to provide her with a report identifying the revenue that the Boot Camp saved from other departments.

Commissioner Sorenson noted she supported the Boot Camp’s continuation provided the County Commission identified a funding source. She suggested the Police Department’s budget be considered as a funding source, noting the Corrections Department was not adequately funded and could not absorb this expense.

Chairman Moss commented that the Mayor and County Manager needed to recommend a funding source to the County Commission.

Commissioner Seijas said she did not support the Boot Camp because the number of participants and the age of the population served had dramatically increased over the years; however, stopping Boot Camp would be detrimental to the current participants and to the judicial system. She suggested that Boot Camp be continued through the end of the fiscal year and encouraged the judicial department to stop referring new participants.

Mr. Timothy Ryan, Director, Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department (CRD) responded to Commissioner Seijas’ question about current Boot Camp programs. He noted that 57 individuals were currently being served by the Boot Camp program in two programs. Mr. Ryan explained that Phase 1 of Program 1 began in January 2010; Phase 2 would finish at the end of May 2010; participants would then complete a 10 month program in cooperation with the probation department; Phase 1 of Program 2 would finish in May 2010; and Phase 2 of Program 2 would end in July 2010. He said a third program was anticipated to begin April 15, 2010 with 38 inmates; however, those inmates had not yet been selected.

Commissioner Seijas suggested the current Boot Camp programs be completed and the third program scheduled for April 15, 2010 be discontinued.
Mayor Carlos Alvarez clarified that Boot Camp participants were adults who were convicted of a felony and not juveniles. He noted that anyone under 18 who was tried and convicted as an adult committed a very violent crime or had numerous arrests.

Chairman Moss noted Boot Camp should not be immediately shut down; however, any future funding decision needed to go through the regular budget process so that the County Commission could determine whether the program remained a priority.

Commissioner Jordan commented that although Boot Camp participants were convicted of a felony, this was their first offense.

Mayor Alvarez responded that it was not necessarily their first offense and some of the crimes they were convicted of were rather violent.

Commissioner Jordan said she was an advocate for giving young people a second chance. She mentioned that Boot Camp originally received $3 million funding through the General Fund. She noted the responsibility for Boot Camp shifted to the Corrections Department due to the nature of the work and expressed concern over departments having to shift costs to other programs outside of their department’s mission. She said the CRD needed to cut other services to maintain Boot Camp and the County Commission needed to determine whether this program was important enough to fund without harming another department in the process.

Commissioner Gimenez expressed support for the foregoing proposed resolution. He said he was more interested in the Boot Camps success rate and what happened after participants left the program, rather than their age and the number of convictions. Commissioner Gimenez asked Mr. Ryan to meet with him to explain why the Boot Camp program was selected to be eliminated over other departmental expenditures. He also asked Mr. Ryan to provide him with a report on the recidivism rate of Boot Camp participants versus the rate for other corrections and rehabilitation programs.

In response to Commissioner Martinez’ question regarding Boot camp eligibility, Mr. Ryan explained that after being convicted of a felony a negotiation process took place between the defense, the judge, and the prosecution when deciding appropriate sentencing options and prison was the first element of that sentence.

Commissioner Martinez noted it was his understanding that eligibility for the Boot Camp required that the individual could not have a previous conviction or be sentenced to prison.

Mr. Donald Coffey, Chief, CRD explained that a person could have been convicted and served prison time and still participate in Boot Camp.

Commissioner Martinez questioned whether someone convicted of murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny, auto theft, or arson would be eligible for Boot Camp. He proceed to ask Mr. Ryan to provide him with a report explaining who was eligible for the Boot Camp program and the type of crimes committed by people housed in Boot Camps. Commissioner Martinez commented that people were sentenced to Boot Camp because maybe the Department of Criminal Justice and other programs did not work and this program did. He noted programs like this, that worked, were a good thing and helped reduce costs by keeping someone out of prison. Commissioner Martinez proceeded to inquire about Boot Camp’s costs compared to traditional incarceration methods.

Mr. Ryan responded that $134 per day was the average cost of incarceration per inmate across the system; $243 per day for Boot Camp; and $217 per day for the Women’s Detention facility, noting that Boot Camp was the most expensive program.

Commissioner Martinez noted that increased costs would be made up on its own with Boot Camp’s 83% recidivism rate and individuals not coming back into the system as often. He proceeded to point out several CRD line item expenditures which could be eliminated or reduced. Commissioner Martinez said Boot Camp costs should remain with the CRD, noting the core mission of Boot Camp was care, custody and control.

County Manager George Burgess explained that the CRD budget was being reduced by $5 to $6 million dollars and the Boot Camp was a Jail System program that CRD supported. County Manager Burgess said that the County was committed to incarcerating inmates; however, was in the process of evaluating the costs per inmate and the cost effectiveness of such programs.

Upon inquiry by Commissioner Martinez on the rationale for eliminating the Boot Camp, County Manager Burgess responded that the recommendations for reductions were made in cooperation with departments across the entire County organization. He noted there was limited revenue and difficult choices were necessary as to which programs to fund. County Manager Burgess noted the costs associated with housing a detainee in the County jail as opposed to the individual serving time in a State facility, at the State’s expense, was a factor in the thought process for making the decision to eliminate funding for the Boot Camp.

Commissioner Martinez inquired where the funding would come from to keep Boot Camp open for the remainder of this fiscal year.

County Manager Burgess said the entire County operations would be reviewed and a decision made to make adjustments within the revenues allocated.

Commissioner Martinez questioned the impact on people currently in Boot Camp.

Mr. Ryan responded that new inmates were scheduled to enter Boot Camp on April 15, 2010 and that all programs would be completed by the end of July.

Commissioner Martinez inquired whether it was intended to complete the existing programs or to begin a new program in April.

Chairman Moss noted this was an issue which needed to go through the budget process; however, he did not want to see any impact upon anyone currently being served in the program.

Commissioner Martinez commented that both programs would be completed before the end of the current fiscal year.

Chairman Moss said he believed current program participants should complete the program and the County Commission in the meantime would make a budget recommendation moving forward. He noted the Commission should not be forced into a position where it would try to continue the program next year without going through the budget process.

Commissioner Martinez proposed that the foregoing proposed resolution be amended to identify funds that would only allow Boot Camp’s current participants to complete the program.

Assistant County Attorney Geri Bonzon-Keenan suggested the amendment read as follows: the resolution establishing County policy to continue Phase 1 and 2 of the Boot Camp program for Fiscal Year 2009-10.

Commissioner Sosa said she believed additional savings could be found in Agenda Item 801C and applied to the Boot Camp program, noting the DCR was requesting $936,000 funding for appliance purchase and repair services. She commented on the value Boot Camp brought to the program participants and their families and expressed support for the proposed resolution as amended by Commissioner Martinez. She also asked County Manager Burgess to provide her with a report explaining who set the guidelines for the Boot Camp program; whether those guidelines could be adapted; what would be the cost for housing a repeat offender versus a one-time offender in the Boot Camp program; and what the County needed to do to capitalize on available State of Florida programs.

Commissioner Rolle asked the County Attorney whether Commissioner Martinez’ amendment covered the remainder of the fiscal year or through the end of July.

Assistant County Attorney Bonzon responded that the proposed amendment would limit Boot Camp to participants in Phase 1 and 2 programs and all of those participants would complete the program by the end of July 2010.

Commissioner Rolle asked Mr. Ryan if Boot Camp was considered to be a failed or a successful program. He also asked whether Boot Camp was the first program CRD considered for budget reductions or were other alternative cost savings considered.

Mr. Ryan responded that Boot Camp was an outstanding program with positive results. He noted that the DCR’s identified $7 million in budget reductions and that many operations, programs and their impacts were considered. Mr. Ryan clarified that $1.8 million was needed to fund Boot Camp through September 2010.

Commissioner Rolle noted his support of the original proposed resolution which provided funding through the end of the current fiscal year.

At this time, Commissioner Jordan presented a motion to extend the meeting. This motion was seconded by Chairman Moss and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 9-1 (Commissioner Seijas voted No)(Commissioners Diaz, Edmonson, and Barreiro were absent).

Commissioner Jordan opined that Boot Camp was created to give first time offenders between the ages of 18-23 a second chance and noted she was unaware of any changes to that mission.

Mayor Alvarez responded that Boot Camp’s mission of serving first time offenders who committed non-violent crimes changed many years ago after an individual who committed a violent crime was inadvertently placed in Boot Camp. He noted, upon further evaluation, it was determined that repeat offenders and individuals who committed violent crimes would benefit from the Boot Camp program.

Commissioner Jordan noted she wanted legislation to clarify that Boot Camp was restored to its original intent to serve first time offenders should this program remain. She spoke about the need for funding decisions to be made through the budget cycle and the budget process and said she supported the original proposed resolution because the program in its original intent was worth saving.

Commissioner Sorenson commented that people were better members of society with recidivism down, rather than being sent to prison for the rest of their lives, and the Boot Camp served a good public purpose and was worth supporting. Commissioner Sorenson said she did not support Commissioner Martinez’ amendment to the proposed resolution because it would cause the program to end. She stressed the need to invest more in education, pre-kindergarten, parenting programs, drug rehabilitation, after school programs, mental health intervention, anger management, and other human service programs which would further reduce the prison population.

Commissioner Sorenson noted that the average homeowner would pay an average of $200 less per year in property taxes and more programs would be cut during the next budget cycle. She noted different choices were necessary; but it would require the County Commission to make some hard decisions. Commissioner Sorenson said it was good public policy to continue programs that worked; that Boot Camp should be continued; and appropriate funding be allocated.

Commissioner Gimenez inquired when the projected April class would complete Phase 2.

Mr. Ryan responded that it was a six month program that would complete in September.

Commissioner Gimenez noted his support for the original proposed resolution because Boot Camp the proposed amended would stop the program in July and it would then have to be restarted. Commissioner Gimenez said Boot Camp was averting more crimes, resulting in fewer victims of those crimes.

Commissioner Martinez withdrew his prior amendment and proposed that the original resolution be amended to remove the requirement that Boot Camp be funded in prospective fiscal years.

Commissioner Seijas questioned how recidivism was measured.

Mr. Ryan responded that recidivism was measured by the number of new arrests from the time of enrollment in the 10 month program through the completion of a 12 month probationary period. He said that records were not maintained on any arrests after the 22 month period.

Commissioner Sorenson asked for the County Manager’s recommendation on a funding source for the Boot Camp.

County Manager Burgess responded that funding would not be limited to the Corrections Department and the entire County operation would be evaluated.

There being no further discussion, the Board proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution as amended.

  RESOLUTION APPROVING AND RATIFYING EXECUTION OF THE 2008-2011 COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT BETWEEN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY AND THE TRANSPORT WORKERS UNION, LOCAL 291 (SEE AGENDA ITEM NO. 9A7)(Human Resources) Adopted

  REPORT: County Manager Burgess noted he met with the Transit Workers Union (TWU) leadership after the last County Commission meeting March 16, 2010. He explained that the County and TWU had successfully negotiated some slight modifications to the previous proposal. He clarified that the changes to the TWU agreement were two fold: 1) the addition of two days of bereavement leave, and 2) the ability to cash out accumulated sick leave after 20 years, which was good economics for the County. County Manager Burgess pointed out that another item on today’s (4/6) agenda recommended the County extend two additional days of bereavement to all County employees. He noted TWU membership voted on this recommended agreement and supported it by a 2 to 1 margin.

Mr. Francisco Garcia, President, TWU Local 291, noted the union membership passed the agreement in this proposed resolution on April 1, 2010, by a margin close to 3 to 1.

Commissioner Sosa questioned whether this proposal included incentive pay to help reduce the absentee rate among Miami-Dade Transit Agency (MDT) employees.

Mayor Alvarez noted the incentive pay was part of this proposal.

Commissioner Sosa requested clarification regarding the differences between this proposal and the previous proposal. She questioned whether the incentive pay was included in the County’s collective bargaining agreements with the other unions.

County Manager Burgess clarified that this proposal suspended premium pay and flex pay for one year, and that the union agreed to a five percent health insurance contribution. He noted a program to reduce absenteeism, a unique issue in TWU, would require the entire membership to have an average reduction of three percent in absenteeism from 19.9 percent to 16.9 percent. He pointed out that each member of TWU would receive $1000 if the absenteeism rate was reduced by three percent. County Manager Burgess explained that TWU members would receive gradually less incentive pay if the three percent goal was not reached (up to $500 for a two percent reduction). He noted the TWU members would not receive any incentive pay if absenteeism was reduced by less than two percent.

Commissioner Sosa noted TWU members would be rewarded for coming to work. She questioned whether this proposal included any penalty for not coming to work.

Mayor Alvarez noted that any County employee who abused sick time would be subject to the established disciplinary process. He pointed out that MDT had an absentee rate of almost 20 percent, therefore, the incentive pay was added.

Commissioner Sosa noted the County would save money with this incentive by not paying employees overtime pay.

Mayor Alvarez noted the incentive pay program helped both the County and the TWU members.

Commissioner Sorenson expressed concern regarding the incentive pay program. She questioned whether working in MDT had been shown to make employees ill more frequently than County employees in other departments.

County Manager Burgess noted the absenteeism issue was not related to an environmental health issue. He suggested that the reason was due to the nature of the contract and the way it was structured, and that maybe the nature of the work was another reason. He pointed out that the incentive was fairly aggressive and it would require a very, very significant effort for the entire TWU membership to average a three percent reduction in absenteeism. County Manager Burgess pointed out that the County would realize saving through overtime reduction that exceeded what would be paid out.

Commissioner Sorenson noted she understood that the incentive program was pragmatic. She clarified that she hated the idea of rewarding people for showing up for work when they were already paid employees. She questioned whether this agreement would have to be reopened in one year.

Mr. Mark Deutsch, Labor Relations, Human Resources, noted the incentive pay was a one year pilot program.

County Manager Burgess explained that this proposed contract did not have a reopen clause. He clarified that this contract would be funded through grant money, fare box revenues, half-penny sales tax, and maintenance of effort. He noted the County was trying to diligently honor the commitment to increase maintenance of effort by 3.5 percent each year. He explained that the County could easily honor the commitment in this proposal to not lay off any MDT employees for 18 months.

Commissioner Gimenez questioned whether the County could not lay off any employees if it received Federal funds for transportation.

County Manager Burgess noted the County could lay off employees depending on why the lay offs were made. He clarified that the issue over lay offs was with the Metrorail project. He noted that the County was not precluded from laying off any employees, however, it was very difficult.

Commissioner Gimenez questioned whether Federal law precluded the County from laying off employees in MDT because the County accepted Federal funds.

Assistant County Attorney Lee Kraftchick advised that Federal law did not prevent lay offs. He explained that provision 13.C in the Urban Mass Transit Act protected employees in the agencies that received federal funds. He advised that Federal funds should not be used to adversely affect employees. Mr. Kraftchick advised that the County signed a 13.C agreement every time it received these funds, and that this agreement stated that in the event of a layoff that is caused by the Federal project an allowance must be paid to the adversely affected employee(s). He clarified that the County could layoff employees, however, the layoffs had a cost associated with them.

Commissioner Gimenez questioned the number of MDT employees protected by 13.C agreements.

Assistant County Attorney Kraftchick advised that every employee impacted by the federally funded project would be protected. He clarified that the question would be in each particular instance did the project cause the layoff.

Commissioner Gimenez questioned whether this protection against layoffs was provided to all MDT employees or only TWU members.

Assistant County Attorney Kraftchick advised that all MDT employees were protected. He clarified that the specific protections would vary from unit to unit depending on which agreement their union negotiated.

Commissioner Gimenez questioned whether the MDT employees who were laid off and had successfully sued the County for damages were part of a bargaining unit.

Assistant County Attorney Kraftchick advised the MDT employee was part of a bargaining unit.

Commissioner Gimenez questioned whether the 19.9 percent absentee rate included vacation and scheduled absenteeism.

Mr. Deutsch noted the 19.9 percent rate included all forms of absenteeism.

Commissioner Gimenez questioned what portion of absenteeism was scheduled absences.

Mr. Deutsch noted 13 percent of absenteeism was unscheduled absences.

Commissioner Gimenez expressed concern regarding the provision that would give employees a pay raise in one year. He expressed concern that MDT was funded, in part, by the general fund.

Chairman Moss pointed out that absenteeism was an issue for transit agencies nationwide. Chairman Moss asked Assistant County Manager Llort to provide him with a breakdown of Miami-Dade Transit Agency (MDT) employee leave usage including a breakdown of the scheduled annual/sick leave versus non-scheduled leave used by MDT employees. He also asked that the Administration work with the unions to address concerns regarding abuse of sick leave.

Commissioner Seijas pointed out that MDT employees were exposed to people who could be carrying infectious diseases, just like police and fire employees. She noted solid waste employees were exposed to issues as well. She explained that this exposure could be impacting the absenteeism.

Commissioner Gimenez asked that the breakdown of scheduled versus non-scheduled leave also be broken down by the day of the week.

Hearing no other questions or comments, the Commission proceeded to vote.
