TITLE
RESOLUTION VACATING THE CURRENT AFFORDABLE HOUSING ADVISORY BOARD, IMPLEMENTING A NEW APPLICATION AND APPOINTMENT PROCESS WHEREBY THE ENTIRE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS IS CHARGED WITH NOMINATING AND APPOINTING NEW MEMBERS TO THE AHAB BOARD

BODY
WHEREAS, pursuant to the William E. Sadowski Affordable Housing Act (“Sadowski Act”) this Board adopted Section 17-106 of the Code creating the Affordable Housing Advisory Board (AHAB), and setting forth AHAB’s membership, composition, terms of office, qualifications, organization and procedure, applicability of County rules and procedures, powers and duties, reporting requirements and staff support; and
WHEREAS, AHAB serves as the County’s affordable housing committee and consists of fifteen (15) members, thirteen (13) of which are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC), one (1) is appointed by the Mayor, and one (1) is appointed by the Overall Tenant Advisory Council; and
WHEREAS, simultaneously with this Resolution this Board is amending the AHAB ordinance in an effort to maintain and strengthen the public’s confidence in the AHAB Board by preventing those who are connected to entities that receive AHAB funding from serving on the board; and
WHEREAS, this Board desires to maintain the integrity of the structure of the AHAB, in light of its recommendations to this Board; and
WHEREAS, in order to attain these goals this Board shall vacate the current AHAB Board within sixty (60) days from the date of this Resolution and, pursuant to §420.9076(2), Fla. Stat., nominate and appoint the new members of the AHAB as an entire Board, discontinuing the current practice of having individual Commissioners appoint and nominate members to the AHAB; and
WHEREAS, this Board shall require all those interested in serving on the AHAB to submit applications, which staff will develop, that will inform this Board of each applicant’s qualifications and any potential conflict issues,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Board of County Commissioners vacates the current membership of the AHAB, directs staff to develop an application for individuals who desire to serve on the AHAB, and changes the appointment from individual Commissioner appointments to requiring the entire Board to collectively nominate and appoint the requisite AHAB members, as outlined in §420.9076(2), Fla. Stat.
