Budget, Planning and Sustainability Committee 9/28/2010 2D Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Martin Sybblis read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Commissioner Gimenez asked that he be listed as a co-sponsor. Chairwoman Sorenson questioned the process used to select South Florida Autism Charter Schools, Inc. and Voices For Children Foundation, Inc. as the recipients of these funds. Special Assistant to the County Manager Jennifer Glazer-Moon noted the County had not developed a process for allocating revenue generated from the issuance of parking permits for persons transporting young children and strollers. Commissioner Heyman asked Special Assistant to the County Manager Jennifer Glazer-Moon to provide her with a report reflecting the names of all organizations that received funding from fees collected from the issuance of parking permits for persons transporting young children and strollers. Commissioner Heyman expressed concern that this proposed resolution would impact the budgets for organizations that previously received these funds from the County. Hearing no other questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote. Chairwoman Sorenson explained she supported the organizations; however, she was voting “No” because she did not support the process used to select these organizations.
