Board of County Commissioners 4/27/2004 10A5 AMENDED Adopted as amended P
REPORT: Commissioner Diaz requested to be listed as a co-sponsor to the foregoing proposed resolution. In response to Commissioner Ferguson, Assistant County Attorney Robert Cuevas explained that the foregoing resolution would only apply to the special pool Community Based Organization (CBO) funds; that it did not involve any permanent changes. Commissioner Sosa asked that this proposed resolution be amended to ensure that commissioners could use the funds to serve the needs of the senior citizens in their Districts. Commissioner Martinez explained that the resolution would keep excess budget funds in the same district for use for other needs, rather than another district. Commissioner Sosa requested to be listed as a co-sponsor to the foregoing resolution. Commissioner Sosa explained that some Community Centers were operated by municipalities and the municipality’s budget funds. She noted that some centers did not have enough funds to feed senior citizens. Assistant County Attorney Cuevas responded to Commissioner Seijas’ question regarding the definition of a CBO, noting a CBO was defined as a not-for-profit agency, group, organization, society, association, corporation, partnership, or individual that provides a community service designed to improve or enhance the well being of the community at large, or certain individuals with special needs. Discussion ensued in connection with the issue of whether or not the surplus funds could be used for municipal CBOs. Assistant County Attorney Cuevas noted that an amendment or new resolution would be necessary to use the funds for municipal CBOs. It was moved by Commissioner Sosa that this proposed resolution be amended to allow CBO’s and other municipalities to use the funds provided they were not used for administrative costs.

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that Resolution No. R-985-03 is amended to provide that any district whose share of special pool CBO funds remains unallocated as a result of the initial Mini-RFP process may have a second RFP process conducted to allocate its remaining share of such funds prior to any portion thereof becoming eligible for allocation to another district under Section 3 of the Resolution.
