Board of County Commissioners 9/22/2011 Presented
REPORT: Ms. Moon suggested taking the funds from the Wage Adjustment and Separation Reserve; however, cautioned the members of the County Commission that more people would need to be laid off in order to cover the separation costs associated with layoffs if there was insufficient funding, or if an agreement was not reached with the unions. Commissioner Monestime noted his support for the foregoing motion to prevent layoffs in the departments under the County Commission’s purview. Responding to Commissioner Moss’ inquiry regarding carryover funds, Ms. Moon noted General Fund subsidized departments did not keep carryover funds and any funds that were not spent from their annual appropriation reverted to the General Fund and became part of the following year’s carryover. Commissioner Barreiro suggested the County Commission consider allowing departments to carryover funds as a general policy. Ms. Moon noted there were Code provisions which allowed for profit sharing with the departments at the Mayor’s discretion. She said that opportunities for profit sharing were available when the County had excess revenues and not reducing its expenditures annually. Ms. Moon noted the General Fund had shrunk over the past three to four years and carryover funds were needed to maintain services. It was moved by Commissioner Diaz that carryover funding in the amount of $761,000 be allocated from the Wage Adjustment and Separation Reserve to restore funding for the Office of the Chair and prospective budgets. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Jordan, and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 8-5, (Commissioners Bell, Bovo, Sosa, Souto and Suarez voted “No”) County Attorney Cuevas noted the foregoing motion would affect Items B and D. Item A County Attorney Robert Cuevas read the foregoing proposed ordinance into the record. Budget Director Jennifer Moon noted the proposed Countywide operating millage rate was 4.8050 mills, which was 10.35% below the State-defined rolled-back rate. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Commission voted to adopt the foregoing proposed ordinance. (Note: The foregoing ordinance was adopted on Friday, September 23, 2011). Item B County Attorney Cuevas noted the foregoing proposed ordinance would be adopted as amended to incorporate the applicable changes delineated in the County Mayor’s Changes Memorandum dated September 22, 2011, entitled “Information for Second Budget Hearing – FY 2011-12 Proposed Budget.” This would include incorporating the applicable changes in the memorandum regarding tables of organization (Attachment A), with the exception of the Office of Human Rights and Fair Employment Practice, which would remain funded as a separate department under the Mayor; to add back the over-stricken language in Section 12 (pages 4 through 10) of this proposed ordinance; and to add back the over-stricken text and figures in the schedule of expenditures (pages 14-15), and to delete the underlined text and figures. County Attorney Cuevas noted as it related to non-organizational matters, to incorporate all other matters contained in the Mayor’s Memorandum; additionally to include the waiver of Section 2-1799(e), related to the disposition of unexpended commission district office budgets, to apply to the Mayor’s Office budget funds; and to include Commissioner Diaz’ motion. It was moved by Commissioner Bell that the $850,000 carryover from the Mayor’s budget be allocated to the General Fund. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Moss, and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 9-4, (Commissioners Diaz, Jordan, Monestime and Barreiro voted “No”). It was moved by Commissioner Heyman that the foregoing proposed ordinance be adopted as amended to include the amendments noted by County Attorney Cuevas and Commissioner Bell’s amendment. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Bovo, and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 11-2 (Chairman Martinez and Commissioner Suarez voted "No"). Later in the meeting, upon Commissioner Moss’ request, it was moved by Commissioner Jordan that the foregoing ordinance be reconsidered. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Suarez, and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 13-0. Upon a reconsideration of this item, it was moved by Commissioner Diaz that the foregoing ordinance be adopted as amended. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Heyman and upon being put to a vote passed by a vote of 10-2, (Chairman Martinez and Commissioner Suarez voted “No”), (Commissioner Moss was absent).
