TITLE
RESOLUTION EXPRESSING INTENT OF THE COMMISSION REGARDING MIAMI-DADE FIRE RESCUE SUPPRESSION ASSESSMENT OPTION

BODY
WHEREAS, in accordance with previously adopted budget priorities, the County Manager was directed to explore other means of providing funding for fire services; and
WHEREAS, on Monday, December 8, 2008, the Health and Public Safety Committee considered a “Recommendation for Approval to Award Contract No. RFP628 Miami-Dade Fire Suppression Assessment” and a report entitled “Miami-Dade Fire Rescue District Fire Suppression Assessment Option”; and
WHEREAS, the proposed contract for professional services included the preparation of methodologies, analyses, reports and ultimately an assessment methodology and roll for implementation by the Board prior to completion of the 2009-2010 budget cycle of a Miami-Dade Fire Suppression Assessment; and
WHEREAS, the Health and Public Safety Committee did not accept the proposed contract to the Board; and
WHEREAS, the Health and Public Safety Committee approved a motion by Commissioner Heyman requesting that the Board comply with Florida Statues and express its intent as to whether the Mayor should further proceed with those steps necessary to maintain availability in the 2009-2010 and subsequent budget years of the option of partially funding fire services with special assessments levied within the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue District; and
WHEREAS, if the County intends to have available for consideration in conjunction with the 2009-2010 fiscal year budget the possibility of the Miami-Dade Fire Suppression Assessment, the County must take action, including advertising and adopting a resolution of intent to use the uniform method of collecting such assessments on or before March 1, 2009,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the Board expresses its desire for the Mayor or his designee to comply with Florida Statutes Section 197.3632 and to proceed with the review and analysis of alternatives, including utilization of special assessments and operating cost reductions to fund a portion of the 2009-2010 budget of the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue District.
