BODY

WHEREAS, on January 21, 2010, the Board of County Commissioners passed Resolution No. 56-10 setting policy related to conflict waiver requests by County contract lobbyist, a copy of which is attached and incorporated by reference; and
WHEREAS, Resolution No. 56-10 provided, among other things, that any conflict waiver request shall be submitted directly to the Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners who shall place the request on the next available agenda of a Board of County Commissioners meeting; and
WHEREAS, the purpose of this resolution is to have contract lobbyist conflict waiver requests submitted to the Clerk of the Board, rather than the Chairman of the Board, with the Clerk placing such requests on the next available Board agenda under the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs heading; and

WHEREAS, on June 3, 2010, the Board passed Resolution No. 632-10, requesting that the staff of the Commission on Ethics and Public Trust review any contract lobbyist conflict waiver request, and provide the Board a report and recommendation on whether a conflict is presented when such conflict waiver request goes before the Board, a copy of which is attached and incorporated by reference; and
WHEREAS, a process should be put in place for the Clerk of the Board not only to place contract lobbyist conflict waiver requests on the next available Board agenda, but also to transmit contract lobbyist conflict waiver requests to the Executive Director of the Commission on Ethics and Public Trust so the staff of the Ethics Commission can conduct the review required by Resolution No. 632-10,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that Resolution No. 56-10 is hereby amended to provide that any contract lobbyist conflict waiver request shall be submitted directly to the Clerk of the Board who shall place the request on the agenda of the next available Board of County Commissioners meeting under the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs heading; further providing that the Clerk shall provide a copy of the request to the Executive Director of the Commission on Ethics and Public Trust so Ethics Commission staff can conduct the review required by Resolution No. 632-10. >>The Clerk shall also place the Ethics Commissionís report on the commission agenda with the conflict waiver request.<<1

1 The differences between the substitute and the original item are indicated as follows: words stricken through and/or [[double bracketed]] shall be deleted, words underscored and/or >>double arrowed<< constitute the amendment proposed.
