TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR HIS DESIGNEE TO NEGOTIATE NECESSARY AGREEMENTS BETWEEN COUNTY AND CITY OF NORTH BAY VILLAGE REGARDING DEVELOPMENT OF REPLACEMENT FIRE RESCUE STATION, TO PRESENT SUCH AGREEMENTS TO THE BOARD FOR ITS CONSIDERATION, AND TO IDENTIFY AVAILABLE FUNDS TO FUND DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH FIRE RESCUE STATION, INCLUDING BUILDING BETTER COMMUNITIES GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND PROCEEDS

BODY
WHEREAS, the existing Fire Rescue Station 27 (“Station 27”) in the City of North Bay Village (the “City”) was leased by the City to the County for use by the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department (“MDFRD”) for $1 per year; and
WHEREAS, Station 27 is connected to another structure owned by the City and that structure has been condemned due to environmental concerns; and
WHEREAS, the MDFRD has made provisions to place temporary trailers at Pelican Harbor Marina to keep the existing engine and rescue available so as to prevent a disruption of services to the residents of the City; and
WHEREAS, it is necessary to replace Station 27 with a new fire rescue station that accommodates modern fire suppression and rescue apparatus and provides adequate living quarters for the firefighting personnel (“New Station 27”); and
WHEREAS, replacement of Station 27 with a New Station 27 is critical to the proper maintenance of public safety infrastructure; and
WHEREAS, on January 29, 2008, the voters of the City of North Bay Village authorized the issuance of general obligation bonds to “construct a Public Safety/City Hall Complex with Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, whereby Miami-Dade County will pay the Fire Rescue Station portion”; and
WHEREAS, the Board wishes to direct the County Mayor or his designee to negotiate the necessary agreements between the County and the City regarding the development of a New Station 27, to present such agreements to the Board for its consideration, and to identify available funds to fund such project, including Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond proceeds; and
WHEREAS, construction of this New Station 27 will not have an impact on the operating budget of the MDFRD,
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. The County Mayor or his designee is hereby directed to negotiate any necessary agreements by and between the County and the City regarding the development of a New Station 27 and to identify available funds to fund such project, including Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond proceeds. The County Mayor or his designee shall identify available funds to fund the New Station 27 and shall prepare and present the necessary agreements to this Board for its consideration within ninety (90) days from the effective date of this resolution; provided, however, if the County Mayor or his designee is unable to identify such funds and successfully negotiate the terms of such agreements within the requisite time period, a report detailing the status of the project shall be presented to this Board instead.
