NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Urges the Florida Legislature at its earliest opportunity to amend Fla. Stat. Ch. 121, pertaining to the Florida Retirement System, to provide special risk retirement benefits to public employees working as ocean lifeguards.
Section 2. Directs the Clerk of the Board to transmit a certified copy of this resolution to the Chair and members of the Miami- Dade County State Legislative Delegation.
Section 3. Directs the County's state lobbyists to advocate for the passage of the legislation set forth in Section 1 above, and directs the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs to include this item in the 2006 State Legislative Package.
