TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR DESIGNEE TO IMPLEMENT A PHYSICAL ONE-STOP INFORMATION AND PROCESSING CENTER FOR OPENING A NEW BUSINESS IN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

BODY

WHEREAS, the United States and South Florida are currently suffering through one of the worst economic downturns since the Great Depression; and
WHEREAS, small businesses are an integral component of our economy; and
WHEREAS, private businesses and entrepreneurs drive research and development and the creation of jobs; and
WHEREAS, any initiative which can attract and assist in the creation of new businesses should be implemented by government; and
WHEREAS, the high unemployment rate in Miami-Dade County (the “County”) magnifies the importance of assisting in the creation of small businesses; and
WHEREAS, the creation of a physical one-stop information and processing center, whereby County residents and visitors can, among other things, inquire about the requirements to open a new business in the County and process the required applications and documentation, should stimulate small business development; and
WHEREAS, Resolution No. R-368-11, which was adopted on May 2, 2011, directed the County Mayor or designee to prepare and conduct a feasibility study on the creation of a virtual or physical one-stop information center for opening a new business in Miami-Dade County within sixty (60) days of May 2, 2011; and
WHEREAS, the County Commission has not received the study required by Resolution No. R-368-11; and
WHEREAS, a streamlined one-stop information and processing service is likely to result in efficiencies and cost savings to the County; and
WHEREAS, the Board believes that it is in the best interest of the citizens of Miami-Dade County to develop and implement a physical one-stop information and processing center as soon as practicable,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that the County Mayor or designee is directed to develop and implement a physical one-stop information and processing center for opening a new business in Miami-Dade County as soon as practicable.
