TITLE
RESOLUTION RELATING TO COMMISSION EFFICIENCY AND ATTENDANCE

BODY
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners, at virtually every meeting, has a large agenda comprised of items that directly affect the lives of the residents of Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, it is the desire of this Board, as it reorganizes itself under the newly-adopted charter provisions, to conduct its meetings more expeditiously; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to express its respect for the legislative process and the time demands placed on the commission members as well as the busy schedules of those citizens attending County Commission meetings; and
WHEREAS, one easily implemented procedure to achieve efficiency would be for County Commission meetings to start promptly and to resume promptly after recesses; and
WHEREAS, this Board is desirous of implementing a procedure to achieve this end,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. Whenever the County Commission requires a quorum, the Clerk of the Board shall call the roll every five minutes.
Section 2. Each time a commissioner is not present when the Clerk calls the roll, that commissioner shall pay $5.00.
Section 3. Each time a commissioner is not present at the time a quorum is achieved, that commissioner shall pay $20.00.
Section 4. Maximum payment. Payments shall be capped at $20.00 for any single application of Sections 2 and 3, inclusive, of this Resolution.
Section 5. Exceptions. The provisions of this Resolution shall not apply if (a) an absence is excused by the Chairperson, or (b) an absence is required by the Conflict of Interest and Code of Ethics Ordinance.
Section 6. The Clerk of the Board shall maintain a running account of all payments due. At the end of each month, the Clerk shall deliver the total amount paid for that month to a charity that is a Miami-Dade County service provider with 501(c)(3) status under the Internal Revenue Code. Each county commissioner shall select a qualifying charity, and each charity shall be eligible to receive the funds generated by the application of this Resolution on a rotating monthly basis.
