TITLE
RESOLUTION APPROVING AND AUTHORIZING THE EXECUTION OF THE ATTACHED INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE VILLAGE OF EL PORTAL AND MIAMI-DADE COUNTY TO PROVIDE FILM PERMITTING SERVICES

BODY
WHEREAS, this Board desires to accomplish the purposes outlined in the accompanying memorandum, a copy of which is incorporated herein by reference,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board approves the Interlocal Agreement between the Village of El Portal and Miami-Dade County providing for film permitting by the Miami-Dade County Film and Entertainment Office on behalf of the municipality, in substantially the form attached hereto and made a part hereof and authorizes the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee to execute the same for and on behalf of Miami-Dade County and to exercise the cancellation provisions contained therein.

HEADER
Date:

To: Honorable Chairman Joe A. Martinez
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Resolution Authorizing an Interlocal Agreement with the Village of El Portal regarding Film and Photography
Production Companies

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
Recommendation
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approve the attached resolution authorizing an Interlocal Agreement (Agreement) between the Village of El Portal (Village) and Miami-Dade County (County) that will allow the County to issue permits to film, television, and still photography production companies desiring to use Village facilities. The attached resolution further authorizes the County Mayor or the County Mayor’s designee to execute the Agreement in substantially the form attached hereto.

Scope
The Agreement applies to any film, television, and still photography production, using facilities located in the Village of El Portal within the boundaries of Commissioner Edmonson’s District 3.

Fiscal Impact
Approval of this item will generate additional revenue for Miami-Dade County’s Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources (RER) Film and Entertainment Office, which will receive a $100.00 application fee for every film permit processed on behalf of the Village of El Portal.

Monitoring
This Agreement will be monitored by Sandy Lighterman, Film and Entertainment Industries Liaison, RER.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
Background
With the approval of Ordinance No. 91-50, the Film and Entertainment Office provides one-stop film permitting services for many of Miami-Dade County’s municipalities to facilitate film, television, and still photography authorizations quickly and efficiently. This approach helps create a “film friendly” environment within Miami-Dade County for film and television production, and encourages more production as a result.

Without the execution of this Agreement, film, television and still photography companies desiring to conduct business in Miami-Dade County will encounter barriers up until production, as each Municipal boundary crossed will require an additional permit, unnecessary paperwork, further man hours and additional fees. This simplified one-stop permitting service has enhanced Miami-Dade County’s ability to efficiently process film permits for all of the filming locations, no matter the jurisdiction.

This item will authorize those services to be performed for the Village of El Portal. The one-stop permitting service is one of the single most effective enticements Miami-Dade County has to attract the ever increasing number of film, television and still photography shoots to this community.
