Board of County Commissioners 5/11/2004 7P2B Adopted P
REPORT: Commissioner Martinez requested that staff keep him abreast of the progress of the Safe Lite Monitoring Pilot Program. Assistant County Manager Pete Hernandez stated a report would be provided to the Governmental Operations and Environment Committee and the full Board on how the program will be implemented. In response to Commissioner Moss’ comment regarding the fiscal impact, Assistant County Manager Hernandez stated that the foregoing proposed resolution directed the County Manager to perform a fiscal impact study comparing countywide installation of Safe Lite Monitoring system at one time with phased installation. Discussion ensued among the members of the Board and staff regarding the success and expansion of the Safe Lite Monitoring System Pilot Program. Following Commissioner Diaz’ comments regarding the cost to implement the pilot program, Assistant County Manager Hernandez stated that the company Horsepower Electric, Inc. met with staff and willingly proffered to expand the pilot program. He noted that the company would be paid the funding available in the amount of $250,000 and the remaining cost would be paid in the next fiscal year which included funding under the Public Works Department Street Lighting Retrofit Program through the People’s Transportation Plan (PTP) subject to the Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust and the County Commission approval. Following further discussion of the Safe Lite Monitoring Pilot Program to address flood-prone areas of the county, the Board by motion duly made, seconded and carried, adopted the foregoing proposed resolution as presented. In response to Chairperson Carey-Shuler’s comments pertaining to who would determine which areas to address, Assistant County Manager Hernandez stated that this fiscal year 2003-04 budget for the department had $250,000 and the remaining funding would be allocated from the Street Lighting Retrofit Program which is part of the PTP that included approximately $3.5 million for the Public Works Department.

TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MANAGER TO TAKE APPROPRIATE STEPS TO IMPLEMENT THE SAFE LITE MONITORING SYSTEM COUNTYWIDE, EXPAND THE SAFE LITE MONITORING PILOT PROGRAM IN FLOOD-PRONE AREAS AND PERFORM FISCAL IMPACT STUDY COMPARING COUNTYWIDE INSTALLATION OF SAFE LITE MONITORING SYSTEM AT ONE TIME WITH PHASED INSTALLATION

BODY
WHEREAS, on June 18, 2002, this Board approved Resolution No. 687-02 (copy attached) authorizing the County Manager to negotiate a contract with Horsepower Electric, Inc. ("Horsepower") for a Pilot Program to study the "Safe Lite Monitoring System" ("System") developed by Horsepower; and
WHEREAS, the Pilot Program included the test of ten circuits consisting of 385 street lights and was completed in February, 2004; and
WHEREAS, on February 24, 2004, the County's independent consultant submitted a report on the operation of the System for street lighting installations; and
WHEREAS, the consultant concluded that the System dramatically increases the level of safety for street lighting installation and may eliminate electrocutions due to metal poles becoming accidentally energized; and
WHEREAS, on April 20, 2004, the Governmental Operations and Environment Committee accepted the consultant's report and approved a motion directing the County Manager to implement the System countywide, expand the pilot program in the most flood-prone areas of the county and to perform a fiscal impact study comparing countywide installation of System at one time with phased installation.

NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA that the County Manager is hereby directed to take appropriate steps to implement the Safe Lite Monitoring System countywide, expand the Safe Lite Monitoring Pilot Program in the county's most flood-prone areas pending implementation of the System and to perform a fiscal impact study comparing countywide installation of the System at one time with phased installation.
