Budget, Planning and Sustainability Committee 5/12/2009 2T Forwarded to BCC without a recommendation P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Jess McCarty read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. It was moved by Commissioner Jordan that this proposed resolution be forwarded to the County Commission with a favorable recommendation. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Gimenez, and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 5-0 (Commissioner Edmonson was absent). It was moved by Commissioner Heyman that this proposed resolution be reconsidered. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Sorenson, and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 5-0 (Commissioner Edmonson was absent). Special Assistant to the County Manager Jennifer Glazer-Moon requested this proposed resolution be amended to add language that the information requested in this proposed resolution would be provided only when legislation designated a particular funding source that was not already approved in the adopted budget. Chairwoman Sorenson clarified this proposed resolution would be cumbersome without this requested amendment. Commissioner Gimenez noted he could not support the foregoing requested amendment. Special Assistant Glazer-Moon noted Commissioner Edmonson had indicated that the intent of this proposed resolution was to have this information for expenses that were not contemplated in the adopted budget. It was moved by Commissioner Jordan that this proposed resolution be forwarded to the County Commission without recommendation with committee amendment(s) to add language that the information requested would be provided only when legislation designated a particular funding source that was not already approved in the adopted budget. Commissioner Gimenez noted he would not support the foregoing motion. It was moved by Commissioner Jordan that this proposed resolution be forwarded to the County Commission without recommendation as presented. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Heyman.

TITLE
RESOLUTION REQUIRING CURRENT INFORMATION REGARDING PARTICULAR FUNDING SOURCE BE PRESENTED TO BOARD AT TIME LEGISLATION DESIGNATING USE OF SUCH FUNDING SOURCE IS CONSIDERED

BODY
WHEREAS, it is crucial that the Board be given as much pertinent information as possible when deciding on a matter that will have a fiscal impact to the County; and
WHEREAS, having a clear understanding of the amount of funding available in the source being used for the allocation will enhance the Board’s ability to fully assess the impact of the proposed item; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to review certain current information regarding a particular funding source at the time it considers legislation that designates the use of such funding source by requiring that the accompanying memorandum, as supplemented if necessary, list the available balance of such funding source and/or the available capacity of such funding source using reasonable interest rates if the issuance of debt is contemplated,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the memorandum that accompanies legislation which designates the use of a particular funding source shall identify the available balance of such funding source and/or the available capacity using reasonable interest rate assumptions if the issuance of debt is contemplated and shall be supplemented by the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee when it is necessary, to update such information prior to the Board’s final consideration of the legislation.
