Subject: Resolution Authorizing the Disbursement of Funds from the Biscayne Bay
Environmental Enhancement Trust Fund for Baynanza 2012 and Authorizing
the Execution of a Related Agreement between Miami-Dade County and the
Florida Inland Navigation District

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board authorize the disbursement of $98,000 from the Biscayne Bay Environmental Enhancement Trust Fund (BBEETF) for Baynanza 2012 and authorize the execution of a related agreement with the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND).

Scope
The Baynanza 2012 events will benefit coastal areas of County Commission Districts 3, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
Funding of $98,000 from the BBEETF is being requested for costs related to the various educational, public awareness and enhancement activities of Baynanza 2012 (see Exhibit A). The FIND Agreement (Attachment A) will provide up to $10,000 toward Baynanza t-shirts. The Department of Permitting, Environment and Regulatory Affairs (PERA) will seek additional funds and services through private sponsorships for Baynanza expenses. Pursuant to Section 7-22.1 of the Miami-Dade County Code, funds deposited into the BBEETF may be used for water body maintenance and enhancement activities such as Baynanza 2012. Expenses incurred during Baynanza 2012 will include posters, banners, registration forms, postage, educational materials, t-shirts, portable restrooms, garbage bags, garbage removal and related costs. BBEETF Index Code: TFDE400010, Subobject: 22430, available balance as of 7/31/2011: $284,000 (other pending disbursements deducted).

Track Record / Monitor
The Environmental Education and Communications Office Chief in PERA will monitor the Baynanza 2012 activities conducted with these funds.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Baynanza is part of the County’s longstanding commitment to enhance public awareness of Biscayne Bay as a recreational, aesthetic, economic, historic, scientific and environmental resource. The various events of Baynanza 2012 (more than 30 Baynanza events took place in 2011) will be scheduled for March and April 2012. The main event, Bay Cleanup Day on April 21, 2012, will commemorate the 30th Baynanza Bay Cleanup Day with shoreline cleanups at a minimum of 26 sites along Biscayne Bay and a special outreach event at the VIP site. Other major Baynanza 2012 events include Earth Day celebrations, a teacher’s workshop, nature walks and similar activities.

Baynanza is a cooperative effort among several County departments, environmental groups in Miami-Dade County and the community at large. Almost 6,000 volunteers participated in the 2011 Bay Cleanup Day and each received a commemorative Baynanza t-shirt as a token of appreciation for their hard work. The t-shirts are part of Baynanza’s educational message. In accordance with Chapter 24-40(4) of the Code of Miami Dade County, I have received and considered the attached recommendation of the Director of PERA to authorize this disbursement.
