TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MANAGER TO COLLECT AIR CONDITIONING UNIT SERIAL NUMBERS WHEN CONDUCTING FINAL INSPECTIONS AT SINGLE-FAMILY AND FEE SIMPLE TOWNHOMES IN UNINCORPORATED MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

BODY
WHEREAS, theft of residential air conditioning units has been rising in Miami-Dade County due to the rising number of new housing developments; and
WHEREAS, efforts to have construction companies voluntarily make changes to help prevent the theft of air conditioners have been unsuccessful and costly; and
WHEREAS, the Miami-Dade Police Department has recognized that there is a large number of “inside jobs” whereby installers are removing components following installation for re-sale at other job locations; and
WHEREAS, currently, there is no documentation of serial numbers of air conditioning units being installed in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, documentation of a unit’s serial number will allow the Miami-Dade Police Department to track a unit’s whereabouts after theft and possibly identify the perpetrators,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the County Manager to collect air conditioning unit serial numbers when conducting final inspections at single-family and fee simple townhomes in unincorporated Miami-Dade County and to keep said records in accordance with the public records laws contained in Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes.
