TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE METRO MIAMI ACTION PLAN TRUST (“MMAP”) OR ITS SUCCESSOR ENTITY TO CONDUCT A FEASIBILITY STUDY RELATING TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A FOUNDATION TO SECURE FUNDING FOR THE TRUST; AND DIRECTING MMAP TO PROVIDE A RECOMMENDATION OF ENTITIES OR ORGANIZATION TO WHICH TO TRANSFER THE TEEN COURT PROGRAM

BODY
WHEREAS, this Board adopted Resolution No. R-1271-08, which created the Metro Miami Action Plan Trust Oversight Review Board (“Oversight Board”); and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board was created to perform those certain duties and functions specified in Section 6 of said resolution, including but not limited to making final findings and recommendations regarding the oversight and management of Metro Miami Action Plan Trust (“MMAP”); and
WHEREAS, on June 30, 2009, the Oversight Board submitted to this Board their final findings and recommendations; and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board recommends that MMAP or its successor entity should be directed by this Board “to chart a course of action that will lessen its dependency on County General Funds”; and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board further recommends that this Board consider the establishment of a foundation to enhance MMAP or its successor entity’s ability to secure funds from philanthropic and other non-tax based sources; and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board also made recommendations related to MMAP’s Teen Court Program; and
WHEREAS, on December 15, 1998, this Board adopted Ordinance No. 98-185 pursuant to 938.19 of the Florida Statutes; and
WHEREAS, said ordinance imposes a three dollar ($3.00) court cost upon every person who pleads guilty or nolo contender to, or is convicted of, regardless of adjudication, a violation of a state criminal statute or county or municipal ordinance or who pays a civil penalty; and
WHEREAS, said ordinance also requires the Clerk of the Circuit Court to remit the three dollar ($3.00) assessment to the County’s Teen Court Program; and
WHEREAS, on December 15, 1998, the Board adopted a policy whereby it designated MMAP to be the entity to administer and operate the Teen Court Program in Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board recommends that the Teen Court Program remain under the jurisdiction of MMAP or its successor entity for no more than three (3) years; and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board recommends that at the end of the three-year period and pursuant to Florida Statute 938.19(6), the Board should authorize the transference of the administration of the Teen Court Program from MMAP or its successor entity to any of the following entities: a non-profit organization, a law enforcement agency, a court administrator, the Clerk of the Court, or any other similar agency; and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board further recommends that MMAP or its successor entity’s Board of Trustees should provide recommendations relating to the successor entity that should be responsible for the Teen Court Program to the Board; and
WHEREAS, the Oversight Board concludes that by transferring the Teen Court Program from MMAP or its successor entity it would allow MMAP or its successor entity to focus on the implementation of a structure that supports the organization’s proposed new focus on economic development; and
WHEREAS, this Board supports the recommendations of the Oversight Board as described herein,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Directs MMAP or its successor entity to conduct a feasibility study relating to the establishment of a foundation by this Board that will focus on enhancing MMAP or its successor entity’s ability to secure funds from philanthropic and other non-tax based sources.
Section 2. Directs MMAP or its successor entity’s Board of Trustees within three (3) years from the date of this resolution to provide this Board with their recommendation of a non-profit organization, a law enforcement agency, a court administrator, the Clerk of the Court, or any other similar agency to which to transfer the Teen Court Program.
