County Attorney 10/11/2007 Assigned Geri Bonzon-Keenan

Board of County Commissioners 10/2/2007 7E AMENDED Adopted as amended P
REPORT: First Assistant County Attorney Abigail Price-Williams read the foregoing proposed ordinance into the record. Commissioner Sorenson noted that this proposed ordinance needed to be amended to reconcile it with Agenda Item 7D, Legislative File No. 071813, which the Commission had adopted. Following Assistant County Attorney Geri Bonzon-Keenan advising the Commission regarding the necessary amendment to this proposed ordinance, it was moved by Commissioner Sorenson that this proposed ordinance be adopted as amended to delete all of the language in Section 2-8.2.10 following the word “project” on line 16, and to insert the following language following the word “project” on line 16: “the foregoing, notwithstanding, a municipality which elects to apply its own sustainable building program to a project shall not be required to apply the provisions of Section 9-71 through 9-75 to that project.” This motion was seconded by Commissioner Gimenez. Commissioner Edmonson announced that the first comprehensively constructed green, affordable house was under construction in her district. Responding to Commissioner Rolle’s request for an explanation regarding the relationship between Agenda Item 7D and this proposed ordinance, Assistant County Attorney Bonzon-Keenan clarified that Agenda Item 7D amended the Miami-Dade County Code of Ordinances (Code) to require a municipality to use the County’s small business programs for design and construction when a municipality constructed a building on behalf of the County; and that the proposed amendment to the Code would allow a municipality to use its own sustainable buildings program, if the municipality had such a program, when constructing a building on behalf of the County. Following discussion regarding Commissioners Diaz and Sosa’s concern regarding the County notifying municipalities regarding this proposed ordinance, Commissioner Sorenson pointed out that the Agenda indicated the County notified the municipalities on June 29, 2007. It was moved by Commissioner Sorenson that this proposed ordinance be adopted as amended to delete all of the language of Section 2-8.2.10 following the word “project” on line 16, and to insert the following language following the word “project” on line 16: “the foregoing, notwithstanding, a municipality which elects to apply its own sustainable building program to a project shall not be required to apply the provisions of Section 9-71 through 9-75 to that project.” This motion was seconded by Commissioner Gimenez, and upon being put to vote, passed 11-0. (Commissioners Diaz and Seijas were absent.)
