RESOLUTION AMENDING IMPLEMENTING ORDER 4-100, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, DEPARTMENTAL RESPONSIBILITIES AND FEES AND FINES FOR PARKING SPACES FOR PERSONS TRANSPORTING YOUNG CHILDREN AND STROLLERS, TO INDICATE THAT FUNDS DISTRIBUTED MUST BE TO ORGANIZATIONS THAT PERFORM COUNTYWIDE SERVICES AND HAVE A COUNTYWIDE PURPOSE
WHEREAS, on June 7, 1994, this Board approved Ordinance 94-104 (“Ordinance”), attached hereto as Exhibit “A”, which established requirements regarding the designation of parking spaces for persons transporting young children and strollers, for the issuance of parking permits for the use of such parking spaces and for penalties for misuse of those specially marked parking spaces; and
WHEREAS, Section 3 of the Ordinance also directed the County Manager to develop an administrative order for producing and issuing parking permits for persons transporting young children and strollers and for a fee for such permit, one-third (1/3) of which was to be distributed to “private non-for-profit non-denominational agencies providing services for severely abused or neglected children;” and
WHEREAS, consistent with the requirements of Ordinance 94-104, the County Manager prepared, and this Board approved, Administrative Order 4-100 (“AO 4-100”) setting forth policies, procedures, departmental responsibilities, and fees and fine for parking spaces for persons transporting young children and strollers; and
WHEREAS, AO 4-100 was thereafter superceded by Implementing Order 4-100 (“IO 4-100”), which included essentially the same provisions as AO 4-100; and
WHEREAS, consistent with the Ordinance, IO 4-100 provides that one-third of the baby stroller permit fees collected will be distributed to private, not-for-profit, nondenominational agencies that provide services for severely abused or neglected children (“Service Agencies”); and
WHEREAS, because these fees are collected from residents throughout Miami-Dade County, then it is in the best interest of the County, and it follows, that the one-third of fees collected that are distributed to Service Agencies should only be distributed to Service Agencies that perform countywide services and have a countywide purpose; and
WHEREAS, this Board desires to amend IO 4-100, as set forth in Exhibit “B”, to indicate one-third of permit fees shall be distributed to Service Agencies that perform countywide services and have a countywide purpose, as well as to provide for other technical amendments,
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA this Board hereby amends Implementing Order 4-100, Policies and Procedures, Departmental Responsibilities and Fees and Fines for Parking Spaces for Persons Transporting Young Children and Stroller, in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit “B” and made a part hereof, to indicate that the one-third of fees collected that are distributed to Service Agencies should only be distributed to Service Agencies that perform countywide services and have a countywide purpose and to provide for other technical amendments.
