TITLE
RESOLUTION APPROVING SIGNIFICANT MODIFICATION TO BUILDING BETTER COMMUNITIES GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND PROGRAM PROJECT NO. 212-UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI (UM)/JACKSON MEMORIAL HOSPITAL (JMH) CENTER OF EXCELLENCE FOR HEARING AND COMMUNICATION DISORDERS AS IDENTIFIED IN APPENDIX A TO RESOLUTION NO. R-916-04 AFTER A PUBLIC HEARING

BODY
WHEREAS, pursuant to Resolution No. R-916-04 (the “Authorizing Resolution”), the voters approved the issuance of general obligation bonds to construct and improve emergency and healthcare facilities in an amount not to exceed $171,281,000; and
WHEREAS, Appendix A to the Authorizing Resolution (“Appendix A”) lists projects eligible for funding from the Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program (the “BBC Program”) by project number, municipal project location, BCC district, project name, project description, street address and funding allocation; and
WHEREAS, all additions, deletions and significant modifications to individual projects or to Appendix A require a majority vote of the Board after a public hearing; and
WHEREAS, one of the healthcare facilities listed in Appendix A and approved by the voters for funding is Project No. 212-“University of Miami (UM)/Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH) Center of Excellence For Hearing and Communication Disorders” (“Project No. 212”); and
WHEREAS, the original project description for BBC Program Project No. 212, as included in the Authorizing Resolution, states: “Provide twenty percent funding match for the development of a self-funding UM/JMH medical center for the diagnosis and treatment for children and adults with hearing loss and related communication disorders”; and
WHEREAS, Project No. 212 also includes an allocation amount of $5,000,000; and
WHEREAS, although the total cost for this project will not be known until project completion, it is expected to exceed $25,000,000 which would result in a conflict between the “twenty percent funding match” in the description and the allocation cap of $5,000,000; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to reconcile the conflict with a modification to the description of Project No. 212 which will result in the BBC Program funding $5,000,000 of the total project cost; and
WHEREAS, the University of Miami has stated, in writing, that it is fully committed to provide the necessary funds in excess of the $25 million cost (approximately $20 million) to complete Project No. 212; and
WHEREAS, the original street address for BBC Program Project No. 212 states: “1611 N.W. 12th Avenue”; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to approve a significant modification to the street address for Project No. 212,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that:
Section 1. The foregoing recitals are incorporated in this resolution and are approved.
Section 2. After conducting a public hearing, this Board approves the following significant modification to BBC Program Project No. 212 – “University of Miami (UM)/Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH) Center of Excellence For Hearing and Communication Disorders” identified in Appendix A to the Authorizing Resolution: the Project Description shall read “To acquire, construct and/or rehabilitate the University of Miami (UM)/Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH) Center of Excellence for the Diagnosis of Communication Disorders” and the street address shall read “To Be Determined.” All other provisions in Appendix A to the Authorizing Resolution with respect to Project No. 212 shall remain unchanged.
