REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Jess McCarty read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Commissioner Suarez asked for an explanation on the intent of this resolution and if it increased or decreased the $2,500 threshold. Deputy Mayor Ed Marquez explained that this resolution directed the Administration to provide the County Commission with a quarterly report, listing all accounts receivable and payables in excess of $2,500 and more than 90 days delinquent. In response to Commissioner Suarez’ inquiry as to whether this resolution applied to any and all accounts receivable and payable made to the County, Mr. Marquez confirmed that as currently written, it did. Commissioner Suarez expressed concern regarding the amount of paperwork this entailed, and if it referred to any monies owed to the County for any purpose by anyone. Mr. Marquez clarified that he did not believe this envisioned tax collections, but it addressed all County operations, licensing fees, and monies owed to the County by businesses. In response to Commissioner Suarez’ request for clarification, Assistant County Attorney Juliette Antoine confirmed that this item did not include the tax rolls, but it would be applicable to other items described by Deputy Mayor Marquez, which exceeded $2,500 and were more than 90 days delinquent. Chairwoman Bell noted Commissioner Suarez raised a valid point that this report could create a lot of paperwork and become burdensome for staff, if it involved all outstanding debt. Mr. Marquez pointed out that the County was a big business operation and delinquent accounts were a normal course of business. He noted, currently, County departments were required to report all accounts receivable that were more than 90 days delinquent to the Finance Department, and it was normal practice for the Finance Department to write off a portion of the accounts receivable over a period of time and present the information to the County Commission in September. Mr. Marquez suggested the Committee defer this item to a later date for him to present more information on what it would entail. Commissioner Suarez noted he would like to proceed with forwarding this item to the County Commission and direct the Administration to provide a report. He asked Deputy Mayor Edward Marquez to include a report on the amount of paperwork involved in producing the quarterly reports requested in this resolution, when it was presented to the County Commission. Commissioner Bell asked that this report also include the number of hours involved in producing the reports. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote, and forwarded this resolution to the County Commission without a recommendation.
