|Special Item No. 1 AMENDED
|Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation as amended
|Commissioner Barreiro recommended Appendix A to Special Item No. 1 be changed to add a representative from the Historic Preservation Board as a member of the Economic Development Fund (EDF) Project Review Committee; and that all funding sources outlined in the Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program Administrative Rules Specified Project Allocations under Section 7 entitled, “Eligibility Requirements” be consistent; and that all funding recommendations be reviewed by the EDF Project Review Committee, the County Manager, the General Obligation Bond (GOB) Subcommittee, and then submitted for final approval by the Board of County Commissioners. In response to Commissioner Barreiro’s comments, Mr. Roger Hernstadt stated a supplemental report would be provided clarifying and outlining how the funding recommendations would be considered. Following a discussion of the project list for the first bond sale, Commissioner Seijas requested a status report on the list of projects for the first Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program Series 2005 sale. County Manager George Burgess stated, in response to Commissioner Seijas’ request, that staff would report to the Board when project lists originated, any changes to the lists and when the County Commission approved the lists. In response to Commissioner Rolle’s inquiry regarding whether the Miami-Dade County’s Strategic Plan was disseminated to community based organizations, Mr. Hernstadt stated that he would meet with Commissioner Rolle later to response to his question. Commissioner Jordan noted after receiving the report she requested on the “old water and sewer system” in Commission District 1 she may have to revisit the GOB program project list for District 1. Chairman Martinez stressed the need for staff to adhere to the Administrative Rules and the timelines for completion of the Building Better Communities Bond Program projects. Assistant County Attorney Heffernan advised the Committee that the GOB proceeds could only be used for capital projects. The Committee of the Whole forwarded the foregoing proposed resolution with a favorable recommendation with amendment to Appendix A to add the Historic Preservation Board and to clarify that all funding applications shall be reviewed by the GOB Subcommittee and submitted to the Board of County Commissioners for final approval.

Subject: Resolution for Administrative Rules and Interlocal Agreement for the Building Better Communities Bond Program
This substitute incorporates changes to Exhibit "A", the Administrative Rules approved by the Committee of the Whole to clarify that all funding applications shall be reviewed by the GOB Sub-committee and presented to the Board of County Commissioners for final approval and the addition of the Historic Preservation Board to Appendix "A".
It is recommended that the Board adopt the attached resolution authorizing the County Manager to establish the Administrative Rules for the Building Better Communities Bond Program. Additionally, this resolution approves the Interlocal and 501 (c)(3) Agreements for distribution to each beneficiary.
On November 2, 2004 the voters of Miami-Dade County approved a $2.9 billion General Obligation Bond Program that will finance over the next 15 years more than three hundred (300) capital projects, some of which will be built by the municipalities and other external stakeholders. This resolution establishes the Administrative Rules for the Building Better Communities Bond Program and allows the County to proceed as scheduled with the first bond sale this summer. Also, included in this resolution as Exhibit "C" are the forms for the Interlocal Agreement for municipalities and the 501 (c)(3) entities that will be entered into by Miami-Dade County and all beneficiaries of this bond sale.
