Board of County Commissioners 3/6/2007 11A9 Adopted P

Governmental Operations and Environment Committee 2/13/2007 3H Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: The foregoing proposed resolution was read into the record by Assistant County Attorney Joni Armstrong-Coffey. Commissioner Martinez noted the sunset review of County Boards was recommended in the report of the Governmental Structure Task Force. He questioned whether the Board should consider the sunset of County Boards now or defer them. Commissioner Gimenez asked if the County had a process in place to eliminate some of these boards. He noted he served on a City of Miami Committee to review boards/committees where he was able to eliminate many of the boards. He suggested a committee be created to review the County’s various boards. He said he would volunteer to participate on this committee. Following further discussion, Chairwoman Seijas stated she would meet with newly elected Commission Chair Barreiro in a sunshine meeting to discuss the possibility of establishing a committee and designating some commissioners to review the County’s various boards. She noted if Chairman Barreiro desired to do this through Committee, she would then ask Commissioner Gimenez to Chair the subcommittee. Hearing no comments or discussion, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing resolution as presented.
