Board of County Commissioners 3/6/2012 7E Adopted P
REPORT: First Assistant County Attorney Abigail Price-Williams read the foregoing proposed ordinance into the record. Hearing no questions or comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed ordinance, as presented.

Internal Mgmt. & Fiscal Responsibility Committee 2/14/2012 1F6 Forwarded to BCC with a favorable recommendation P
REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Oren Rosenthal read the foregoing proposed ordinance into the record. Chairwoman Bell opened the public hearing and called for persons wishing to appear before the Committee in connection with this proposed ordinance. Ms. Stacey Silvera, 20221 NE 21 Avenue, Miami, appeared in support of the proposed amendment to the ordinance. She noted she was the owner of a Small Business Enterprise (SBE) firm and served on the Small Business Advisory Board. Ms. Silvera said this proposal would help small businesses participate with the County, noting that a micro program set aside was established but never was a SBE set aside and many local firms fell above the micro level. She explained that at least three businesses were needed within a specific category in order for a set aside and encouraged Commissioners to reach out to their constituents to promote SBE registration. Ms. Dorothy Brown-Alfaro, 6600 NW 27 Avenue, #104, Miami, spoke in support of the amendment to the ordinance. After hearing no one further wishing to speak, Chairwoman Bell closed the public hearing. It was moved by Commissioner Edmonson that the foregoing proposed ordinance be forwarded to the County Commission with a favorable recommendation. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Jordan. Commissioner Monestime noted the foregoing proposed ordinance would provide access and an effective method for small businesses to compete for County contracts. He said the County spent $19.7 million on goods and services valued under $100,000; however, the SBE share of these funds was only ten-percent. Commissioner Monestime noted the proposal would increase participation in the SBE set-aside for contracts under $100,000 and provide a greater opportunity for small businesses to compete with one another. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed ordinance as presented.
