STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution authorizing the execution of an Air Pollution Control Specific Operating Agreement with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for cooperative air pollution control program management in Miami-Dade County.

Scope
This agreement will involve countywide environmental permitting and regulation.

Track Record/Monitor
The Director of the Department of Environmental Resources Management will monitor this agreement.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Since the 1970s, Miami-Dade County, through the Department of Environmental Resources Management (DERM), has been designated as an approved local environmental program pursuant to state law. In 1981, a general agreement was executed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and Miami-Dade County specifying cooperative arrangements for enforcing state and local environmental laws. The general agreement was subsequently updated in 1989, with expressed intent of developing additional, specific operating agreements relating to air programs. The attached Air Pollution Control Specific Operating Agreement (Attachment A) defines the roles of FDEP and Miami-Dade County through DERM and pursuant to state law.
The attached resolution seeks to continue with the cooperative agreement between the FDEP and Miami-Dade County relating to the delegation of state air pollution control programs to Miami-Dade County, which was initiated in 1995 and renewed previously in 2007. The agreement establishes the basis upon which FDEP and Miami-Dade County work together to protect air quality. The agreement provides that Miami-Dade County will continue to be delegated certain state permitting activities and will retain 80% of the state air permit fees collected. Permitted facilities will continue to realize savings in their combined state and county permit fees as a result of the delegation. The program delegation also streamlines the permitting process as well as maximizes the impacts of both state and local efforts pursuant to state air rules.

The proposed Air Pollution Control Specific Operating Agreement will have a term of three (3) years from the date of execution by both parties.
