REPORT: (See Agenda Item 11A24 Amended; Legislative No. 061923 for the amended version.)

Infrastructure and Land Use Committee 5/16/2006 3K Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Hearing no objection, the Committee considered Agenda Item Nos. 3K and 3L simultaneously. Commissioner Diaz asked Commissioner Jordan how Agenda Item No. 3K would be implemented. In response, Commissioner Jordan noted that staff would decide how to implement this resolution. She added that over 90 sites had been identified with illegal dumping problems. Assistant County Manager Roger Carlton noted that the Miami-Dade Police Department would enforce this resolution. He also noted he would submit a report to the Committee with a breakdown of the funding and program measurements. Regarding Agenda Item No. 3L, Commissioner Edmonson asked what benchmarks would be used to determine adverse impact on a not-for-profit business and what amount of funding was needed to mitigate adverse effects. In response to Commissioner Edmonson’s previous question, Mr. Roger Hernstadt, Director of the Office of Capital Improvements, noted that each business would complete an application showing lost revenues impacted by construction projects. Following evaluation of each application, a recommendation regarding loan to the business up to $35,000 would then be made, he pointed out. Mr. Hernstadt also pointed out that a process for appealing the recommendation was available. He noted the funding source would be the same as that used on the construction project and if use of this funding source was prohibited by law, an alternate funding source was used. Hearing no other discussion, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolutions.

WHEREAS, illegal dumping leads to blight, eyesore, vermin and other impacts on the community; and
WHEREAS, removing illegally dumped material is an expense borne by the taxpayers and landowners of Miami-Dade County; and

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Manager is directed to conduct a study to determine the feasibility of the use of 25 cameras on a rotating basis at the various "hot spots" within Miami-Dade County for the detection and punishment of people involved in illegal dumping and that a report of this study shall be provided to this Board of County Commissioners within forty-five (45) days of the date of this resolution.
