REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Martin Sybblis read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Commissioner Gimenez noted that he had presented a similar proposal directing the County Mayor or his designee to prepare a report identifying the requirements, permits, and fees necessary to begin operating a business in Miami-Dade County; and recommendations of redundant requirements, permits, and fees to eliminate, which was still pending. He said he would continue to support this item. Assistant County Manager Alex Munoz responded that staff was responding to Commissioner Gimenez’ request; that the initial draft required corrections; and that the report would be combined with this proposed resolution when considered by the Board. There being no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing resolution as presented.

TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR TO PREPARE A REPORT OUTLINING THE REQUIREMENTS AND COSTS TO OPEN A NEW BUSINESS IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

BODY

WHEREAS, it is imperative to recognize that private business and entrepreneurs drive the research and development, jobs, and opportunities of tomorrow, thereby forming the backbone of the United States’ economy; and
WHEREAS, especially during the current economic downturn, entrepreneurs in Miami-Dade County must be encouraged to form new businesses, and existing business entities must be encouraged to relocate operations to Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, this Board desires that Miami-Dade County stay focused on a specific goal and mentality that new business, new entrepreneurship, and new investment in our County is valuable, encouraged, and desperately needed; and
WHEREAS, in furtherance of this goal, this Board desires to provide entrepreneurs with as much information as possible to facilitate the creation of new businesses and jobs in Miami-Dade County,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board directs the County Mayor or Mayor’s designee to prepare a written report outlining: (1) the step-by-step process(es) required to open a new business in Miami-Dade County; (2) a summary of the involvement, if any, of each individual County department involved in the process(es) of opening a new business in Miami-Dade County; and (3) the estimated cost of opening a new business in unincorporated Miami-Dade County, as well as, an estimate of the cost of opening a

new business within the boundaries of each municipality. These cost estimates shall include all estimated fees and permits associated with opening a new business, and in addition, shall include estimates for a multi-range of business sizes (including small, medium, and large). For purposes of this report a new business shall be a business that does not currently have any offices or locations within Miami-Dade County and is seeking to either relocate to Miami-Dade County or to newly incorporate in Miami-Dade County. The County Mayor or Mayor’s designee is further directed to present this report to the Board within sixty (60) days after the adoption of this resolution.
