Board of County Commissioners 6/3/2008 7D Adopted P

Governmental Operations and Environment Committee 5/13/2008 3A Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: The foregoing proposed ordinance was read into the record by Assistant County Attorney Geri Bonzon-Keenan. Hearing no objection, Item 3D was heard simultaneously with Agenda Item 3A. Chairwoman Seijas opened the public hearing, and the following individual(s) appeared in connection with this ordinance: Mayor Kevin Burns, City of North Miami, appeared in support of the annexation. He noted this property was located in both the City of North Miami and Unincorporated Miami-Dade County’s jurisdictions, and would be used for affordable housing development. He expressed concern that the residents living in this development would have two providers (the City and the County) for garbage service, and recommended they have only one. Seeing no other person to appear, Chairwoman Seijas closed the public hearing. Commissioner Gimenez questioned whether the language in this ordinance providing for retention of garbage/refuse collection and disposal meant the County would retain the garbage collection service. Mr. Vicente Castro, Deputy Director, Solid Waste Management (SWM), noted an Interlocal Agreement between the County and the City of North Miami (City) would determine the provider; however, SWM had no problem with the City continuing to collect the garbage since it disposed of its garbage at the County’s disposable facilities anyway. In response to Commissioner Diaz’ inquiry whether the provision stated in this ordinance posed any legal issues, Assistant County Attorney Craig Coller noted pursuant to County Code 20-8.4 regarding annexations, the County was required to retain the garbage collection services. He noted this ordinance did not provide an exception in its title; therefore, it could not be modified. He suggested the garbage collection issue be resolved through a subsequent interlocal agreement. Commissioner Rolle expressed concern that exhibits/maps provided in agenda packages were often illegible and asked in which district was this property located. Chairwoman Seijas suggested whoever prepared the agenda kits be more conscientious in providing legible copies of maps/exhibits. Mr. George Fernandez, Office of Strategic Business Management, apologized for the obscure maps, and noted he would correct this in future agendas. He noted the property was located in District 2, in response to Commissioner Rolle’s question. Assistant County Attorney Coller noted he reviewed the Code again, and found it expressly provided that collection services could be worked out through an interlocal agreement, and should not be an issue with this ordinance. In response to Commissioner Diaz’ question regarding differences in the City’s costs per residence versus the County’s cost to provide this service, Mr. Fernandez noted the properties were currently vacant, hence, no cost. Chairwoman Seijas asked Mr. Jorge Fernandez, OSBM, for future references, to provide a report on the measurement (in tons) of garbage collected by municipalities and disposed of in County facilities. She also asked that this information, as it pertained to the City of North Miami, be provided to the District Commissioner, as well as the City Administration, before this item was presented before the County Commission. Hearing no further comments or questions, the committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed ordinance as presented. Commissioner Gimenez asked that staff provide maps and graphic attachments in color, to the agenda coordinator’s office for inclusion in the Committee and Board of County Commissioner agenda packages.
