NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Approves the Conditional Deed of Gift between Miami-Dade County and the United States of America, represented by the Department of the Army in substantially the form attached and hereto and made a part hereof; and

To: Honorable Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa
and Members, Board of County Commissioners

From: Carlos A. Gimenez
Mayor

Subject: Resolution Authorizing the Execution of the Conditional Deed of Gift between Miami-Dade County and the United States of America for the Army Donations Program

STAFF RECOMMENDATION
RECOMMENDATION:
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners approve the accompanying resolution approving and authorizing the execution of the Conditional Deed of Gift between Miami-Dade County and the United States of America, represented by the Department of the Army for their Army Donations Program.

SCOPE
The impact of this Conditional Deed of Gift is countywide.

FISCAL IMPACT/FUNDING SOURCE
There is no fiscal impact to Miami-Dade County as this is a donation of rifles by the Department of the Army to the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department.

TRACK RECORD/MONITOR
Ms. Janelle Hall, Manager of the Community Affairs Bureau, will be responsible to comply with the contract and its reporting requirements.

MANAGER'S BACKGROUND
BACKGROUND:
The use of the Honor Guard is a long standing tradition in military and paramilitary organizations. The Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department’s Honor Guard participates in local, state and national events serving as ambassadors to the public, presenting a positive image of their service, and assisting with recruiting efforts. The Honor Guard participates in funeral/memorial services when law enforcement personnel are killed in the line of duty; renders services at funerals/memorials of county and state law enforcement and correctional personnel, upon request. Honor Guard services include serving as pallbearers, conducting firing party and/or bugler demonstrations for funeral/memorial processions. This year, the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department’s Honor Guard has participated in the National Correctional Officers and Employees Week and Miami-Dade County’s Law Enforcement Memorial at Tropical Park.

Currently, the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitations Department does not have ceremonial rifles and must instead utilize shotguns during ceremonial events. The Army Donations Program offers excess rifles to be utilized as ceremonial rifles to local jurisdictions as a donation. The Army Donations Program is offering eight rifles, with a fair market value of $500 each, to the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department’s Honor Guard. The attached Conditional Deed of Gift outlines the provisions that must be complied with, including the use of rifles for ceremonial purposes only; proper security and storage of the donated rifles, and the triennial inventory to be submitted to the Department of the Army.

Deputy Mayor
