NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board approves the County Manager’s action to apply for State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Historic Preservation, Grants and Education funds, in the approximate amount of $350,000 for the “Dade County Courthouse 75th Anniversary Courtroom Restoration Project,” to restore Courtroom 6-1; and authorizes the County Manager to receive and expend grant funds; execute such contracts and agreements as required by grant guidelines or to further the purposes described in the funding request, following approval by the County Attorney’s Office; to expend any and all monies received for the purposes described in the funding request; to apply for, receive and expend subsequent funds that might become available during the term of the grant; to file and execute any necessary amendments to the application for and on behalf of Miami-Dade County, Florida; to exercise amendments, modifications, renewal, cancellation and termination clauses of any contracts and agreements on behalf of Miami-Dade County, Florida; and receive and expend matching funds pledged by the Dade County Bar Association.

Grant Application

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that the Board retroactively adopt the attached resolution, which approves the County Manager’s action to apply for State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Historical Resources, Bureau of Historic Preservation, Grants and Education funds in the approximate amount of $350,000. It is also recommended that the Board authorize the County Manager to receive grants and education funding; execute such contracts and agreements as required by the grant guidelines following approval by the County Attorney’s Office; receive and expend any additional funds that might become available during the term of the grant; file and execute any necessary amendments to the application for and on behalf of the County; and exercise amendment, modification, renewal, cancellation, and termination clauses of any contracts and agreements on behalf of the County. Further, it is recommended that the Board authorize the County Manager to receive and expend grant required matching funds pledged by the Dade County Bar Association, in an amount not to exceed $350,000. Funds are intended for use in the “Dade County Courthouse 75th Anniversary Courtroom Restoration Project,” to restore Courtroom 6-1, located in the Historic Dade County Courthouse, 75 West Flagler Street, in Miami-Dade County, Florida.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
The Historic Dade County Courthouse is located downtown in the City of Miami, in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and is home to the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court of the State of Florida. Trials are held in Courtroom 6-1, as well as ceremonial investitures and special judicial events. The Courtroom, however, has deteriorated through the years and is in need of an environmental and aesthetic "makeover.” Funding from this grant, with the required match, will total approximately $700,000 and will underwrite the complete restoration of Courtroom 6-1.

The award period for this grant is 24 months. The grant period is July 1, 2005 to June 30, 2007. The short turn around time imposed by the application deadline, of May 31, 2004, did not allow sufficient time for the processing of the resolution and its submission to the Board prior to the submission of the proposal.
