BODY
WHEREAS, on January 12, 2010 a devastating earthquake hit Haiti, approximately 10 miles southwest of the city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti; and
WHEREAS, more than three million people -- a third of Haiti’s population -- have been affected by the earthquake; and
WHEREAS, the earthquake is the latest in a series of events that have hit Haiti in recent years, including four deadly storms that struck Haiti in 2008; and
WHEREAS, the people of Haiti are in dire need of disaster relief and this Board wants to make every effort to provide as much disaster relief as possible to the people of Haiti;
WHEREAS, Georgia Ayers, the Founder and Executive Director for The Alternative Program, Inc., also known as The Janet Reno New Chance Alternative School, owns a facility located at 151 NW 60th Street, Miami, FL (the “Georgia Ayers Facility”) and has volunteered to make this facility available to the County for earthquake disaster relief efforts for the people of Haiti; and
WHEREAS, this Board desires to direct the County Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to conduct a feasibility study which explores the utilization of the Georgia Ayers Facility for Haitian relief efforts,
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. This Board hereby directs the County Mayor or the Mayor’s designee to prepare a feasibility study for utilizing the Georgia Ayers building for Haitian relief efforts, including but not limited to, using such facility to provide temporary housing and/or programmatic services and to report to this Board the result of such study. The report detailing such alternatives shall be presented to the Board at the next scheduled meeting of the Board.
