Subject: FY 2013-14 Budget for the South Miami Community Redevelopment Agency
It is recommended that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) consider the attached resolution approving the South Miami Community Redevelopment Agency’s (Agency’s) FY 2013-14 Budget for the South Miami Community Redevelopment Area (Area). The Agency’s Budget includes revenues and expenditures in the amount of $1,555,611.
The Area lies within Commission District 7, represented by Commissioner Xavier L. Suarez.
Fiscal Impact / Funding Source
The Agency’s revenue source is tax increment financing (TIF), which is generated through the incremental growth of ad valorem revenues beyond an established base year, as defined in Section 163.387 of the Florida State Statutes. The Countywide TIF into the Agency’s Trust Fund for FY 2013-14 is $535,747 and the City of South Miami’s (City’s) TIF payment into the Trust Fund is $489,337.
The County will continue to make annual payments to the Agency, based on each respective year’s growth of ad valorem revenues over the base year, through 2020, which is when the Agency will sunset.
Track Record / Monitor
This item does not provide for contracting with any specific entity and only approves the Agency’s FY 2013-14 Budget of $1,555,611.
On June 16, 1998, the Board approved the establishment of the Agency when it adopted the Agency’s Community Redevelopment Plan (Plan) pursuant to Resolution R-99-100 and the funding of the Plan when it enacted Ordinance No. 98-80 (Trust Fund). An Interlocal Agreement between Miami-Dade County and the Agency was approved by the Board on September 9, 1999, and later amended through Resolution R-327-04. The Interlocal Agreement requires the Agency to submit an annual budget prior to expending any TIF funds for the implementation of the Plan.
