County Mayor

Subject: Resolution Amending the Job Creation and Disbursement Dates Authorized for Goya Foods of Florida under the County’s Targeted Jobs Incentive Fund Program

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approve the request to amend Resolution R-1087-07, which authorized Goya Foods of Florida (“Goya” or the “Business”) to participate in the County’s Targeted Jobs Incentive Fund (TJIF) Program, to authorize new job creation and disbursement dates as detailed below:

Approved under R-1087-07 Proposed Jobs and Dates
Payment Job Creation Deadline Net New Jobs Disbursement Date Job Creation Deadline Net New Jobs Disbursement Date Payout
# 1 12/31/2011 5 FY 2008 12/31/2012 5 FY 2014 $116,058.00
# 2 12/31/2012 5 FY 2009 12/31/2013 5 FY 2015 $116,058.00
# 3 12/31/2013 20 FY 2010 12/31/2014 20 FY 2016 $116,058.00
# 4 n/a 0 FY 2011 n/a 0 FY 2017 $116,058.00
# 5 n/a 0 FY 2012 n/a 0 FY 2018 $116,058.00
# 6 n/a 0 FY 2013 n/a 0 FY 2019 $116,062.00

Total 30 30 $696,352.00


The original disbursement dates listed in R-1087-07 were not consistent with other parts of R-1087-07, the Application and Agreement executed by Goya, or the TJIF program rules, all of which require the following to receive an initial disbursement: 1) the capital improvements must be completed and reflected on the tax roll, and 2) the first milestone regarding net new jobs created must be met. In accordance with TJIF program rules at the time, the first disbursement in Resolution R-1087-07 should not have been FY 2008, but rather the first fiscal year after the capital improvements were completed and the first five of 30 net new jobs were created. At the request of the Business, staff administratively adjusted the disbursement date to FY 2011 to reflect a disbursement date closer to the first job creation milestone. Had the business made a disbursement request prior to completing the capital improvements and meeting the first net new jobs milestone, the County would not have issued a payment.

This resolution will authorize a revised new job creation and disbursement date schedule to authorize the first disbursement in FY 2014, which is the first fiscal year following the completion of the required capital investment and expected creation of the first five net new jobs. The total number of jobs to be created and total incentive amount will not change with approval of this item. The new dates for job creation and incentive award disbursements as set forth in this resolution are not subject to change, and the TJIF award will be cancelled if the job creation conditions are not met within the stated timeframe.

Scope
The business operations of the project will create 30 new jobs that will primarily impact Commission District 12; however, the overall economic impacts will benefit the entire County through economic multiplier effects.

Fiscal Impact / Funding Source
Based on the conditions set forth in the TJIF Ordinance, and as approved through R-1087-07, Goya is eligible for $696,352 in TJIF assistance to be paid over a six-year period based on the capital investment stated in its application. However, County staff is also projecting approximately $870,440 in additional general fund revenues to the County from the capital investment commitment as stated in the company’s TJIF application. Based on these projections, this incentive would yield a net positive fiscal impact of $174,088 to the County.

The County uses general fund revenue to support the TJIF Program pursuant to the Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida, Chapter 2, Article LXXXVI, as modified by Ordinance No. 11-08.

Track Record/Monitor
The TJIF program specifies that a Board approved TJIF project, for an expanding business such as Goya, must create the greater of at least five new jobs or at least the equivalent to 10 percent of the business’ work force at the time of application and make at least a $3 million capital investment to receive the incentive. This project is promising to make a capital investment of $26 million and create 30 new jobs.

Staff from the Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) upon the company’s request for incentive payment, will verify that it has met the required number of new jobs created, at the required wage rate and in accordance with the TJIF agreement. The disbursement of the TJIF award is capped at the incremental general fund County taxes actually generated and paid by Goya. OEDIT staff also confirms that the ad valorem and/or the tangible personal property taxes are sufficient to cover the TJIF payment.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
On October 2, 2007, the Board approved Resolution R-1087-07, which authorized the participation of Confidential Project 08-0002 in the County’s TJIF Program. At that time, the Business was considering Miami-Dade County in addition to Orlando, FL; Broward County, FL; and West Palm Beach, FL as potential locations for its expansion of operations. The Business made a public decision to expand its operations in Miami-Dade County and the confidentially of the project expired.

As a condition of the TJIF award, Goya agrees to hire 30 new full-time employees, maintain the 293 existing employees through the life of the award, and make a capital investment of $26 million to expand its food manufacturing and distribution center. Resolution R-1087-07 authorized the County to use countywide general funds to be paid out over a six-year period.

In August 2008, Goya submitted a written request to the Department of Housing and Community Development for an administrative change to the disbursement dates timeline to reflect the first disbursement being paid out in FY 2011 instead of FY 2008, which was administratively granted. Due to delays in permitting, construction, and in the delivery of equipment, Goya submitted a written request to the Office of Economic Development and International Trade on June 2011 for another amendment to the disbursement dates timeline as proposed in this item.

The Business is seeking to expand its food manufacturing/distribution operations which is currently under construction and is due to be completed by December of 2012. The expansion will increase its current warehouse storage capacity from 180,000 to 300,000 square feet and its employees from 293 to 323.

Goya is a food manufacturing/distribution company (SIC Code #2000), currently located in District 12. The company currently employs 293 workers at its Miami-Dade facility and is committing to create an additional 30 jobs over a three-year period, and retain those new jobs for an additional three-year period. In total, the company is committing to maintaining 323 jobs for the duration of the TJIF incentive. The company agrees as a condition of the TJIF award that the 30 new workers hired will have an average annual salary of $27,643 (excluding benefits).
