Recreation & Cultural Affairs Committee 4/16/2003 1C1 Presented
REPORT: Commissioner Heyman noted the foregoing proposed fee waiver guidelines had been developed specifically for park and recreation and cultural facilitates, equipment, and services. She asked that these guidelines be forwarded to each commissioner who was not a member of the Recreation and Cultural Affairs (RCA) committee, along with a memorandum requesting that any input, suggestions, or changes to the proposed guidelines be submitted to her office by May 1, 2003. She said guidelines would be presented as a committee item for consideration at the May 5, 2003 Regular Commission meeting. Commissioner Heyman asked that the guidelines be corrected to eliminate scrivener's errors. She noted the committee had formalized the proposed Draft. She thanked Assistant County Manager Alina Tejeda Hudak and Ms. Vivian Rodriquez, Director, Miami-Dade County Park and Recreation Department for their assistance and developing the proposed guidelines. Commissioner Sorenson pointed out that the proposed guidelines were not legally binding. She questioned whether it would be sufficient without an enforcement mechanism. Commissioner Heyman noted she anticipated that the process would be a slow one that would require consistency; however, it was an initial step towards establishing guidelines and justification for approving fee waivers. She said she envisioned that this proposal would cause a change in behaviors or practices. Commissioner Moss noted he supported the proposed guidelines. He noted, for the record, that he would continue to support fee waiver requests for events in his District (Commission District 9). Assistant County Manager Alina Tejeda Hudak noted approximately 80 percent of fee waiver requests were placed on the agenda by a commissioner. She inquired whether it was the committee's intent that commissioners receiving requests for fee waivers would also conduct reviews before submitting them for placement on agendas. Commissioner Heyman concurred with Ms. Hudak. She asked that appropriate language be prepared to accomplish this intent and be submitted for her consideration on May 1st for inclusion in the guidelines. Appropriate language to identify the department director and other individuals submitting fee waiver requests for approval by the County Commission. She suggested this language be incorporated on page 3, under Item No. 8.
