Board of County Commissioners 9/23/2010 ITEM E AMENDED Adopted as amended P
REPORT: County Attorney Robert Cuevas read the foregoing proposed ordinance as amended into the record. County Manager George Burgess noted the proposed Fire Rescue Service District operating millage rate was 2.5753 mills, which was 4.23 percent above the state-defined rolled-back rate; the proposed Miami-Dade Library System operating millage rate was 0.284 mills, which was 33.47 percent below the state-defined rolled-back rate; the proposed Countywide Debt Service millage rate was 0.445 mills; and the proposed Fire Rescue District Debt Service millage rate was 0.02 mills. Commissioner Gimenez noted the Countywide Debt service at 0.445 mills exceeded the amount of .390 that residents were informed they would be charged in 2004 when the bonds were sold. He said that approval of the higher millage rate would be another promise broken by Miami-Dade County to its residents. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Commission voted to adopt the foregoing proposed ordinance. It was moved by Commissioner Sorenson that the foregoing proposed ordinance be adopted as amended pursuant to the County Manager's memorandum dated September 23, 2010 and correction of scrivener's errors. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Jordan, and upon being put to a vote, passed by a vote of 7-6 (Commissioners Barreiro, Edmonson, Jordan, Rolle, Seijas, Sorenson and Chairman Moss voted "Yes") (Commissioners Gimenez, Heyman, Martinez, Sosa, Souto and Vice Chairman Diaz voted "No"). (Note: The foregoing ordinance was adopted on Friday, September 24, 2010).
