TITLE
RESOLUTION REQUIRING THE COUNTY TO UTILIZE LOCAL SKILLED AND UNSKILLED LABORERS FOR COUNTY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECTS AND DIRECTING THE MANAGER TO INCLUDE THIS REQUIREMENT IN COUNTY CONTRACTS PROVIDING FUNDING FOR SUCH PROJECTS, TO THE EXTENT ALLOWED BY LAW

BODY
WHEREAS, unemployment in Miami-Dade County affects the local economy in a negative way and places an undue strain on this community's resources; and
WHEREAS, recent statistics indicate that 3.5 percent of the County's labor force of nearly 1.18 million people were unemployed in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, there is a significant supply of unskilled and skilled laborers who are available for employment opportunities in connection with community development and affordable housing projects underway and upcoming in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, certain state and federal programs restrain the County from including a local preference in community development and affordable housing projects for which the County provides pass-through funding; and
WHEREAS, this Board believes that all other projects, which are not subject to such restrictions, should utilize local skilled and unskilled laborers to the extent legally possible for community development and affordable housing projects,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that it is the policy of this Board that the County shall utilize local skilled and unskilled labor to the extent available for County community development and affordable housing projects, and the Manager is hereby directed to include this requirement in any County contract providing funding for such projects, to the extent allowed by law.
