Subject: Resolution Ratifying the Mayor’s Execution of a State of Florida Grant Agreement
to Provide up to $95,050 to Miami-Dade County from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission for Derelict Vessel Removal Pursuant to Resolution No. R-1170-06

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approve the attached resolution ratifying the Mayor’s execution of State of Florida Grant Agreement No. 11150 with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) Florida Boating Improvement Program to provide up to $95,050 to Miami-Dade County for derelict vessel removal funding pursuant to Resolution No. R-1170-06.

Scope
Under this agreement, derelict vessel removal will occur in Commission Districts 3, 4, 5 and 9.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
State of Florida Grant Agreement No. 11150 will provide up to $95,050 to Miami-Dade County for derelict vessel removal activities for fiscal year 2011-2012. The amount is based on the number and size of derelict vessels identified for removal by FWC and Miami-Dade County.

Track Record/Monitor
The Coastal Resources Section Manager within the Department of Permitting, Environment and Regulatory Affairs (PERA) will be responsible for implementing these activities.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
State of Florida Grant Agreement No. 11150 (Exhibit 1) will provide funding for the removal and disposal of derelict vessels abandoned in Biscayne Bay and its tidal tributaries.

Derelict vessels cause pollution and hazards to navigation, threaten water quality and wildlife, represent a risk to human health and safety and preclude lawful use of public waters by responsible boaters, fishermen and others enjoying Biscayne Bay. This is the fourth year that Miami-Dade County has received grant funding from FWC’s Florida Boating Improvement Program for the removal and disposal of derelict vessels.

Resolution No. R-1170-06 (Exhibit 2), adopted October 10, 2006, authorizes the execution of grants and agreements without prior Board approval when certain criteria are met. The attached grant agreement met the criteria for execution, was executed December 12, 2011, and is hereby submitted to the Board for ratification. Under this agreement, the State of Florida will reimburse Miami-Dade County for work performed between December 12, 2011 and March 31, 2013.
