TITLE
RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING A POLICY THAT ALL CHECKS DUE MIAMI-DADE COUNTY BE MADE PAYABLE TO MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, ONE OF ITS DEPARTMENTS OR DISTRICTS AND NOT TO THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS [SEE ORIGINAL ITEM UNDER FILE NO. 131638]

BODY
WHEREAS, although all Miami-Dade County funds and accounts are held in the name of Miami-Dade County or in the name of one of its departments or districts, citizens are advised, in some circumstances, to make checks payable to the ''Board of County Commissioners'' while at other times they are advised to make checks payable to Miami-Dade County or to the billing department or district when making a payment to Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, citizens have also expressed a concern that checks are made payable to the ''Board of County Commissioners'' even though the fines are imposed by one of its districts such as the fire district; and
WHEREAS, this Board wishes to establish a policy that checks are not to be payable to the ''Board of County Commissioners'' in order to be consistent with the billing entity and to avoid any confusion by the citizens,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that all checks for payments due Miami-Dade County, one of its departments or districts be made payable to Miami-Dade County or its billing department or district and not to the ''Board of County Commissioners'', provided Miami-Dade County is identified in checks made payable to a billing department or district.
