REPORT: Assistant County Attorney Cynthia Johnson-Stacks read the foregoing proposed resolution into the record. Commissioner Jordan noted that based on the passage of the ordinance, staff needed to determine how it would implement the program and urged committee members to approve the foregoing resolution. Commissioner Bell pointed out that although she understood the intent of the foregoing resolution, she was in opposition of it. She noted her concern regarding this resolution requiring contractors to put forth good faith efforts to hire 50% of their workforce from one particular agency. She noted it was unnecessary for the commission to mandate contractors to hire anyone through any particular agency; South Florida Workforce was a well funded agency and could do a good job of advertising and promoting jobs themselves. Commissioner Bell also pointed out the harsh penalties within this resolution was unnecessary and felt this would not encourage employment growth. She inquired whether any provisions for emergency hiring existed within this resolution. Assistant County Attorney David Hope noted it was a three to five day hiring process. Hearing no further questions or comments, the Committee proceeded to vote on the foregoing proposed resolution, as presented.
