Subject: Resolution Waiving Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond Program’s Administrative Rules for Purpose of Disbursing Bond Funds in the Amount of $1,171,875.25 as Local Government Match to the US Army Corps of Engineers Relating to BBC GOB Project No. 52 - “Beach Erosion Mitigation and Renourishment Project”

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the attached resolution waiving Building Better Communities General Obligation Bond (“BBC GOB”) Program’s Administrative Rules for purpose of disbursing bond funds in the amount of $1,171,875.25 to the US Army Corps of Engineers as the County share of the non-federal portion of a federal beach renourishment project.

Scope
The proposed beach nourishment will occur in Commissioner Heyman’s District 4, with countywide benefits.

Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
This resolution would authorize disbursement of $1,171,875.25 in additional funds from BBC GOB Project No. 52 - “Beach Erosion Mitigation and Renourishment Project” (Index Code CPF052PE1636) to provide additional funds needed for the County’s share of the non-federal portion of the project. On October 2, 2012, the Board adopted Resolution No. R-797-12, authorizing the advance of $1,980,900.25 in GOB funds to provide the estimated County share for the Bal Harbour beach nourishment project. A subsequent cost estimate revision from the US Army Corps of Engineers was received by the County in October 2012, requesting an additional $1,718,040.24 in non-federal funding. County funds of $1,171,875.25 and State grant funds of $546,164.99 (Grant No. CPDE04, Index Code CPE315PE0401) will provide the non-federal portion. The BBC GOB funds to be used are from unexpended 2011A proceeds.

Track Record/Monitor
Brian Flynn of the Natural Resources Division of the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources will be responsible for tracking and monitoring this project.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
Miami-Dade County serves as the local sponsor for the Federal Miami-Dade County Beach Erosion Control and Hurricane Surge Protection Project extending from Government Cut to Sunny Isles Beach. The County is therefore responsible for providing local coordination of beach nourishment activities conducted by the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), including providing the non-federal funds needed to implement projects.

The Corps is currently initiating the Federal Contract G Project to renourish critically eroded segments of Bal Harbour beach located between 96th Street and Haulover Inlet. The project was estimated at $5,808,240 with the non-federal funding share of $2,904,120 divided between an existing State grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection allocating $923,219.75 (31.79% of the non-federal cost share) and County BBC GOB funds totaling $1,980.900.25 (68.21% of the non-federal share). On October 2, 2012, the Board approved waiving GOB administrative rules for purpose of disbursing BBC GOB funds in that amount.

On this same date (October 2, 2012) the County received a revised cost estimate from the US Army Corps of Engineers requesting $4,622,160.24 (Attachment A). Deducting the previously authorized $2,904,120.00 amount, an additional $1,718,040.24 in non-federal funds are required for the revised cost estimate for the pending Bal Harbour nourishment project and for costs associated with an ongoing US Army Corps of Engineers study to identify future sand sources for beach nourishment in Miami-Dade County. The additional $1,718,040.24 in non-federal funds will be comprised of $1,171,875.25 (68.21%) in County GOB funds and $546,164.99 (31.79%) in State grant funds.

The BBC GOB Program’s administrative rules state that funding is to be disbursed on a reimbursement basis and only allows funding advances of up to 90% for municipalities. Under the terms of the local cooperation agreement between the US Army Corps of Engineers and Miami-Dade County, all non-federal funds must be provided to the US Army Corps of Engineers prior to initiating the bid process. To facilitate the disbursement of the GOB funding for the County portion of the non-federal funds, the attached resolution waiving the BBC GOB Program’s administrative rules is recommended for approval.
