TITLE
RESOLUTION APPOINTING INTERIM BOARD OF TRUSTEES TO THE METRO MIAMI ACTION PLAN TRUST; AND APPROVING THE NOMINATING COUNCIL PROCEDURES FOR SELECTION OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

BODY
WHEREAS, on November 20, 2008, this Board adopted Resolution No. R-1271-08, which created the eleven member Metro Miami Action Plan Trust Oversight Review Board (‘’Oversight Board’’); and
WHEREAS, pursuant to that resolution the Board also removed all of the Board of Trustees of Metro Miami Action Plan Trust (‘’MMAP’’) and further directed the MMAP Nominating Council to convene within ten days of the date of that resolution; and
WHEREAS, this Board expressed concerns that an interim Board of Trustees be appointed in order to avoid a lengthy period of time elapsing by which MMAP is without a Board of Trustees; and
WHEREAS, this Board further agreed that the interim Board of Trustees could be selected from the membership of the Oversight Board; and
WHEREAS, on December 10, 2008, the Nominating Council convened a meeting of its members pursuant to Section 2-503(a) of the Code of Miami-Dade County (“Code”) to recommend the names of the interim MMAP Board of Trustees; and
WHEREAS, Robert Holland, Esq., Reverend Richard P. Dunn, and Reverend Walter T. Richardson were previously appointed by the Board to serve as members of the Oversight Board; and
WHEREAS, Robert Holland, Esq., Reverend Richard P. Dunn, and Reverend Walter T. Richardson have agreed that they will serve, subject to this Board approval, as interim Board of Trustees in lieu of serving on the Oversight Board and the Oversight Board membership shall be reduced from 11 to 7 members and quorum of such board shall be the majority of such membership; and
WHEREAS, the Nominating Council voted unanimously to nominate and recommend the appointment of Robert Holland, Esq., Miguel De Grandy, Esq. Reverend Richard P. Dunn, Reverend Walter T. Richardson and Reverend Canon Richard Livingston Marquese-Barry, whose resumes are attached hereto as Exhibit A, to serve as interim MMAP Board of Trustees; and
WHEREAS, the Nominating Council, pursuant to the Code, has also developed procedures for the selection of the Board of Trustees, which are attached hereto as Exhibit B and which are subject to the approval of this Board,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, the Board:
Section 1. Pursuant to the Code hereby appoints the following persons to serve as interim MMAP Board of Trustees:
