TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING COUNTY MAYOR OR MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO INITIATE DIALOGUE WITH FLORIDA MARLINS, L.P. AND CITY OF MIAMI TO DETERMINE WHETHER PARTIES WOULD MUTUALLY AGREE TO AMEND STADIUM AGREEMENTS TO REDUCE PUBLIC’S CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS CONSTRUCTION OR OPERATION OF NEW MARLINS’ BALLPARK

BODY
WHEREAS, the County, the City of Miami (the “City”) and the Florida Marlins, L.P. (the “Marlins”) and its affiliates have entered into a number of agreements related to the design, construction, operation and management of a new ballpark, including a Construction Administration Agreement (as amended), an Operating Agreement, a City Parking Agreement, a Non-Relocation Agreement and an Assurance Agreement by and among the County, the City and the Marlins (hereafter collectively referred to as the “Stadium Agreements”); and
WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of the Stadium Agreements, the County and the City will contribute all funding for the public infrastructure for the ballpark, $361 million towards the ballpark’s construction costs, and annual contributions towards a capital replacement account; and
WHEREAS, the County’s $347,500,000 contribution towards the ballpark’s construction costs is funded in part by $50,000,000 of Building Better Communities general obligation bond proceeds; and
WHEREAS, the Board wishes to direct the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee to initiate dialogue with the Marlins and the City to determine whether the parties would mutually agree to amend the appropriate Stadium Agreements to reduce the public’s contribution towards the construction and/or the operation of the ballpark,
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. The County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee is hereby directed to initiate dialogue with the Marlins and the City to determine whether the parties would mutually agree to amend the appropriate Stadium Agreements to reduce the public’s contribution towards the construction and/or the operation of the ballpark. The County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee is directed to present the amended Stadium Agreements to this Board for its consideration within sixty (60) days from the effective date of this resolution; provided, however, if the parties are unable to mutually agree to the terms of such amendment(s) within the requisite time period, a report detailing the status of the negotiations shall be presented to this Board instead.
