County Attorney 12/20/2007 Assigned Henry N. Gillman

Board of County Commissioners 12/4/2007 7A AMENDED Adopted as amended P
REPORT: County Attorney Robert Cuevas read the foregoing proposed ordinance into the record. Commissioner Sorenson questioned what provisions would be waived if this proposed ordinance was adopted. County Attorney Cuevas advised the County would waive the other programs and procedures attached to procurement policies not listed in this proposed ordinance, such as Community Small Business Enterprise provisions, and other provisions of that nature. Commissioner Sorenson questioned whether the Inspector General would still have jurisdiction of the reverse osmosis water treatment plant in this proposed ordinance. Mayor Julio Robaina, City of Hialeah, explained the Inspector General would have jurisdiction over the funds proposed by the County, but not the City of Hialeah’s $80 million. Responding to Commissioner Sorenson’s request to ensure the Inspector General was included in this proposal, County Attorney Cuevas noted he would ensure the necessary provision was included and would apply to County funds. It was moved by Commissioner Diaz that the foregoing proposed ordinance be adopted as amended to include a provision clarifying the Inspector General's jurisdiction. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Seijas. In response to Commissioner Rolle’s inquiry concerning County liability for cost overruns, Mayor Robaina explained the County and the City of Hialeah would equally share any cost overruns or cost savings, and the City of Hialeah would come back to the County Commission to authorize expenditure for any cost overruns. Hearing no other questions or comments, the Commission proceeded to vote on this proposed ordinance as amended to include a provision clarifying the Inspector General’s jurisdiction.
