  ORAL REPORT: INVESTING TO REDUCE LEAKS WITHIN THE WASTEWATER SYSTEM(Mayor) Accepted
Report
Mover: Audrey M. Edmonson
Seconder: Rebeca Sosa
Vote: 13 - 0
  REPORT: Mr. Kevin T. Lynskey, Director of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department (WASD), provided a PowerPoint presentation about spillage within the County�s wastewater system highlighting the following topics:

� How does WASD compare to the rest of Floria's water systems
� Wher does Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) come from
� Key Action Areas
� How are we further reducing Pump Station (PS) SSOs
� Contractor Damage to Assets
� How are we reducing Contracto SSOs
� WASD�s force main system
� What drives asset failures
� Risk-based approach
� Assessment Results: Probability of Failure
� Assessment Results: Business
� Existing Emergency Response & Risk Mitigation Mechanisms
� Identification & Prioritization of Critical Force Main Assets
� South-Dade Force Main

Commissioner Levine Cava asked how WASD�s plan to contain spills intersected with the federal court decree and the needed improvements to the system; and whether the plan changed the department�s original approach.

Mr. Lynskey stated there was hardly any intersection and noted the majority of the work specified in the federal decree was related to the maintenance of wastewater plants with only minimal segments of pipes identified for replacement. He explained while the federal decree did not immediately impact WASD�s original plan, it allowed for additional time for the department to evaluate which pipes needed to be replaced beginning 2025.

Discussion ensued between Commissioner Levine Cava and Mr. Lynskey regarding force mains identified as a high risk of failure and WASD�s plan to resolve the issue.

Responding to Commissioner Levine Cava question as to whether there were any alternatives to better identify pipes for contractors during excavations, Mr. Lynskey reassured the Board members that improved detection technology such as three dimensional, computer-aided design (3D CAD) should help prevent future breaks during excavations.

  STATUS REPORT ON FEMA REIMBURSEMENTS FOR HURRICANE IRMA � DIRECTIVE NO. 182307(Mayor) Accepted
Report
Mover: Sally A. Heyman
Seconder: Audrey M. Edmonson
Vote: 13 - 0
  REPORT: Referencing the status report provided regarding the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) reimbursements for Hurricane Irma, Chairwoman Edmonson questioned why there was almost a $100 million difference between the current projected expenditure amount ($276 million) and the 2019 projected expenditure amount ($375 million).

Deputy Mayor Edward Marquez explained the difference occurred because the original expenses were overestimated and provided a brief review of the estimated and actual expenditure amounts. He noted FEMA contested some of the County�s reimbursement requests for hurricane-related expenditures and asked for additional documentation for the Miami-Dade Police Department's overtime costs which was not unusual. In this instance, he stated FEMA requested more details about the overtime for the police department; he expected the County to receive money in about two years.

Commissioner Heyman noted to date, the County was only reimbursed $135 million by FEMA with $129 million outstanding. She pointed out it was not uncommon for FEMA to contest reimbursement requests by the County and urged her colleagues to be mindful of the County�s COVID-19 related expenditures particularly with the current COVID-19 crisis and the upcoming hurricane season because she did not anticipate the County to fully recover from the economic impact of the pandemic in the upcoming budget cycle.

  REPORT: Chairwoman Edmonson pulled Agenda Item 15B1 to address the procedural matter with respect to Agenda Item 4E. She stated the proposed ordinance was waived out of committee to expedite consideration, but needed a waiver of the fourth week/sixth week municipal notice requirement.

Chairwoman Edmonson requested the County Attorney's Office (CAO) read a motion to waive the notice requirement so Agenda Item 4E could be scheduled for public hearing and second hearing at the June 2, 2020 Board of County Commissioners Meeting.

Assistant County Attorney Dennis Kerbel read the following:

�Item 4E, an ordinance relating to expansion of the Rapid Transit Zone, is before the Board on First Reading today and under the rules requires municipal notification and six weeks between passage on First Reading and the public hearing.

�Chairwoman Edmonson moves to suspend the rules as to the four week/six weeks municipal notice requirement so that the public hearing and Second Reading may be held at the June 2, 2020 Board of County Commissioners Meeting.�

The foregoing proposed ordinance was adopted on first reading and set for public hearing before the Board of County Commissioners meeting on June 2, 2020 at 9:30 a.m.

  REPORT: First Assistant Attorney Geri Bonzon-Keenan read the title of the foregoing proposed ordinance and advised the Board it was a public hearing item.

The following person came before the Board and voiced his opposition to the proposed ordinance, which approved a revolving line of credit of $150,000,000 for the Public Health Trust (PHT).

Mr. Carlos A. Migoya, President and CEO of Jackson Health System, stated the item provided the line of credit under a contingency which prohibited Jackson Memorial Hospital from furloughing or laying off employees. He stated this was an impediment to his ability to properly operate the hospital. He added no one could predict what would happen in the future, which could necessitate the need for furloughs and layoffs. According to Mr. Migoya, this item removed any maneuverability from a management standpoint to deal with finances.

Ms. Martha Baker called into the meeting and voiced her support for the item. She pointed out the need for the line of credit because the hospital had cut back from elective surgeries and procedures. She also mentioned the hospital employees were essential and provided important services to the community, and the line of credit helped pay for them.

Hearing no one else wishing to speak, Chairwoman Edmonson closed public hearing for the item.

Assistant County Attorney Juliette R. Antoine read an amendment, as requested by Commissioner Souto, into the record �to remove the delegated authority to the mayor to extend the line of credit and to replace such delegation with a requirement that any proposed extension to the PHT line of credit required the express approval of the Board of County Commissioners.�

Vice Chairwoman Sosa seconded the amendment, and explained this helped Mr. Migoya, and gave the Board the ability to provide assistance as needed.

Ms. Antoine also read an amendment from Commissioner Levine Cava �to provide that as a condition of any draw on the proposed line of credit that the PHT certify that the County during the period commencing on May 5, 2020 to the date of the draw that it has not laid off or furloughed any employees of the Public Health Trust and it will not lay off or furlough any employees of the Public Health Trust until the COVID-19 pandemic is declared by the World Health Organization to be over, absent the approval of this Board.�

Commissioner Heyman expressed concern with the item. She supported the proposed line of credit but opined the item imposed conditions on the PHT in lieu of receiving the line of credit. The item also restricted the hospital with future planning in light of the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic. She also expressed confidence in Mr. Migoya with how he managed the hospital and would do as well in the future.

Commissioner Martinez agreed with Commissioner Heyman and mentioned the item only called for the PHT to apply for a loan which the County would support and the issue of furloughs/layoffs should not be attached to the loan. He stressed the Board should not be restrictive towards the PHT.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa informed the Board that Mr. Migoya stated in a memo that furloughs were deferred indefinitely. Also, she reported elective surgeries were already being performed at the hospital and would receive funding from several sources. She opined the Board should not hinder Mr. Migoya�s efforts with managing the hospital and he needed the Board�s full support.

Commissioner Higgins declared the Board must show support to the employees at Jackson Memorial Hospital. She appreciated Commissioner Levine Cava�s amendment and asked if the furlough/layoff provision in the amendment could be revisited later for adjustment. Ms. Antoine confirmed the furloughs/layoffs should be approved by the Board.

Commissioner Jordan voiced her support for both amendments and reminded the Board the PHT was part of the County government. As such, the County was responsible for the hospital system and must care for it, as well as its employees who took enormous risks in their jobs.

Commissioner Bovo informed the Board hospitals in his district had already furloughed some of their employees. He conveyed that the PHT must protect their employees� jobs, but the Board should not get involved with how the PHT managed its processes. He noted the PHT managers and staffs collaborated well with each other and should be allowed to continue to do so without interference from the Board.

Commissioner Levine Cava noted her amendment sent a strong message of support to the hospital employees, many of which were being recruited by other health systems. She also stated these employees were needed for the COVID-19�s probable resurgence and other future health emergencies.

County Attorney Abigail Price-Williams confirmed with Mayor Gimenez there were provisions in the Miami-Dade County Code for restrictions imposed on the hospital system by the County and the County compensated the hospital system for any shortfalls resulting from the restrictions.

Mayor Gimenez declared he did not want any restrictions imposed onto Mr. Migoya, who would not be able to run the hospital as he saw fit. He stated the hospital had been denied its revenue source from elective surgeries and other means, although he agreed with the amendment to protect employees. He opined this could lead to the hospital not accessing the line of credit to get around this issue and the County would then have to pay for the shortfalls. Mayor Gimenez reminded the Board the County faced extreme budgeting issues because of the COVID-19 crisis and wanted to avoid raising taxes.

Commissioner Heyman asked Mr. Migoya how much money he received from the federal government, which was the hospital system�s only outside source for revenue during the crisis. He replied that the hospital system received $24 million, but the expenses were $70 million, although he expected more money forthcoming. He also declared furloughs were not considered for doctors and nurses. Only subsidiary employees were being considered for furlough in order to keep the hospital system solvent.

Commissioner Moss announced his support for Jackson Memorial Hospital and its employees who were front-line workers. He proposed a motion as a compromise which allowed PHT to access the line of credit. If layoffs or furloughs were considered in the future, the PHT had to meet with the Board for discussion and approval.

This motion was seconded by Chairwoman Edmonson, who noted Commissioner Levine Cava�s amendment was an unfunded mandate and the Board should not interfere with how the hospital was run, especially with day-to-day operations.

Commissioner Levine Cava deferred to Commissioner Moss� compromise motion and withdrew her amendment.

It was moved by Commissioner Moss that the foregoing ordinance be amended �to remove the delegated authority to the mayor to extend the line of credit and to replace such delegation with a requirement that any proposed extension to the PHT line of credit required the express approval of the Board of County Commissioners.� This motion was seconded by Chairwoman Edmonson, and upon being put to a vote, the item passed 13-0.

  200711 Resolution     Audrey M. Edmonson        
  RESOLUTION AMENDING, AFTER A PUBLIC HEARING, THE CITIZEN PARTICIPATION PLAN WITHIN THE 2013-2017 CONSOLIDATED PLAN, AS EXTENDED THROUGH FISCAL YEAR 2019, ELIMINATING THE REQUIREMENT THAT THE COUNTY CONSULT WITH THE MODEL CITY COMMUNITY ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON MATTERS RELATING TO THE COUNTY�S CONSOLIDATED PLAN FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT, HOME INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIPS, AND EMERGENCY SOLUTIONS GRANT FUNDING; AND AUTHORIZING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR THE COUNTY MAYOR�S DESIGNEE TO PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE CITIZEN PARTICIPATION PROCESS IN THE MODEL CITY NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION STRATEGY AREA AND, WHEN APPLICABLE, IN THE WEST LITTLE RIVER NEIGHBORHOOD REVITALIZATION STRATEGY AREA AS SET FORTH HEREIN(Public Housing and Community Development) Amended
  REPORT: First Assistant County Attorney Geri Bonzon-Keenan read the title of the foregoing proposed resolution into the record and advised the Board of a proposed amendment to the item regarding the Model City Community Advisory Committee (CAC). She read the amendment into the record:

�Item 5N is amended to remove all references to utilizing an alternative citizen participation process in the West Little River Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area. The County will continue to receive input through the West Little River Community Advisory Committee. Therefore, as to the process described in the Mayor�s Memorandum, Resolution and Exhibit 2, all references to utilizing an alternative citizen participation process in the West Little River Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area are to be deleted. In addition, the item is amended to replace Exhibit 2 with a clean version of the document instead of the red-line version that is attached.�

Chairwoman Edmonson stated all references to the West Little River neighborhood were removed because it was not in her district. She opened the public hearing and called for persons wishing to speak.

The following person called the Board and voiced his opposition to the resolution:

Dr. Mae Christian, who served on the CAC for over 15 years. Dr. Christian declared the long-running Committee achieved many goals in the district, and provided a lot of funding for neighborhood projects, as well.

Supporting the opposition was Mr. Stephen Hunter Johnson, 170 NE 159th Street, Miami, FL 33162, who emailed the Board with this message: �The Miami Dade County Black Advisory Board opposes the dissolution of the Model City Community Advisory Committee. The problem with the dissolution is that it deprives the residents of that community a voice in the County Government. The Black Affairs Advisory Committee has been asked by the members of the committee to coordinate productive discussions with County officials to address their membership vacancies, conduct elections and move its mission forward, and would ask that we be allowed an opportunity to address this as an appropriate solution.�

The following person left a voicemail message for the Board in opposition to the item:

Ms. Dianeilla Pierre, 7151 NW 14 Place, Miami, FL 33147, who spoke on behalf of the Miami-Dade branch of the NAACP Housing Committee. She stated many residents dealt with COVID-19 and were not able to comment on the item previously. Based on her organization�s review and residents� feedback, she recommended this matter should be brought back to the residents before the elimination of the requirements in the item and that the County consult with the CAC.

Chairwoman Edmonson stated for the record this item was to amend the Citizen Participation Plan (CPP) and removed its requirement to consult with the CAC on the Consolidated Plan for Community Development. She explained the CAC was supposed to gather community input and present recommendations to the Board. However, based on the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report attached to the item, instead of using community input, the CAC made recommendations which benefited themselves.

The resolution allowed the Public Housing and Community Development Department (PHCD) to gather feedback directly from the community for this year�s citizen participation process, which would begin in June or July.

Chairwoman Edmonson elaborated if the item followed the normal route it would have to go to committee before it could be brought to the Board, which would be too late to implement the plan. She wanted to ensure Liberty City and Brownsville received funding during the legislative session with this resolution. She added on several occasions beginning in September 2018, PHCD attempted to provide training to the CAC, but the committee was unable to work with the PHCD.

Mr. Michael Liu, Director of the PHCD, spoke before the Board and supported Chairwoman Edmonson�s explanation about the need to expedite the process. According to Mr. Liu, the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) set deadlines for the County to implement the process which had to be met by June or July.

Chairwoman Edmonson stated for the record she added several projects to the Model City program based on input from her district�s residents.

Commissioner Moss proposed an amendment for PHCD to move forward with an alternative process based on other CACs and convene elections after the legislative session. He reasoned this allowed more input from individuals in the CAC process and gave residents more representation. Chairwoman Edmonson agreed to add Commissioner Moss' suggestion to the amendment.

Commissioner Monestime announced he would not support the item, although he supported Commissioner Moss� suggestions. He acknowledged the issues with CAC, but concluded the item gave the impression of curtailed community participation. Chairwoman Edmonson objected and stressed the PHCD would hold meetings with the community.

It was moved by Chairwoman Edmonson that the foregoing resolution be amended "to remove all references to utilizing an alternative citizen participation process in the West Little River Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area. The County will continue to receive input through the West Little River Community Advisory Committee. Therefore, as to the process described in the Mayor�s Memorandum, Resolution and Exhibit 2, all references to utilizing an alternative citizen participation process in the West Little River Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area are to be deleted. In addition, the item is amended to replace Exhibit 2 with a clean version of the document instead of the red-line version that is attached.� and for PHCH to move forward with alternative processes based on other CACs and to convene elections after the legislative session.

This motion was seconded by Commissioner Martinez, and upon being put to a vote, the item passed 12-1; Commissioner Monestime voted no.

The amended version of this Resolution has been assigned Resolution No. R-371-20.

6B POLICY MATTERS FOR DISCUSSION BY THE BOARD  
6B1  
  200557 Discussion Item     Esteban L. Bovo, Jr.        
  UPDATE ON THE COUNTY'S CENSUS EFFORTS Presented
  REPORT: Commissioner Bovo presented his report on the County�s 2020 census efforts and reminded his colleagues that a copy of the presentation had been sent to them for further study. He spoke about his efforts to cover every contingency to prepare for the census except a pandemic and noted the deadline for responding to the census was extended to October 31, 2020. Commissioner Bovo urged people to fill out the census forms as soon as possible and noted households would receive mailed forms if its occupants had not yet responded.

Commissioner Bovo stated while the overall nationwide response rate to the census was 56.6 percent with Florida�s response rate being 54.3 percent, he was intent on improving the County�s current response rate from 50.9 percent to that of 80 to 90 percent.

Commissioner Bovo emphasized the importance of residents participating in the census and noted higher participation rates led to increased funding for healthcare; which was particularly important now during the COVID-19 pandemic; education, transit, housing and social services. He spoke about efforts made by different municipalities to encourage resident participation and reported the response rates for Palmetto Bay was 69.3 percent, Miami Shores was 67.9, Pinecrest was 66.6, Cutler Bay was 63 percent and Miami Springs was 62.8 percent.

Commissioner Bovo recognized there were many cities with lower response rates and reviewed his efforts to encourage weekly dialogue with various officials and community partners to increase awareness through community events which would remind residents about the census.

Commissioner Bovo acknowledged Commissioner Monestime for his efforts in his Commission District and thanked the Board for their support. He reiterated the information collected from the census would not be shared with any agency and commented on the possibility of another federal stimulus aid package to improve infrastructure. He pointed out federal funding allocations were determined by population and restated the importance of the census in the process.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa suggested distributing flyers or other informational materials with the County�s home meal delivery program to encourage residents to complete the census.

Commissioner Levine Cava thanked Commissioner Bovo for his leadership as the Chair of the Miami-Dade County�s 2020 Census Task Force. She noted census information forms were circulated at food distribution events and encouraged the Administration to expand such efforts with other programs.

Commissioner Moss commended Commissioner Bovo on his work thus far and asked him for a list detailing the response from his Commission District to help promote the census.

Commissioner Bovo replied he would provide his colleagues with maps for each Commission District detailing the response rates so they could determine where their efforts were most needed, as well as listing of cities and their percentage rates.

  DISCUSSION ITEM CONCERNING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND THE COVID-19 HEALTH CRISIS [SEE AGENDA ITEM NO. 11A44] Presented
  REPORT: Vice Chairwoman Sosa recognized Ms. Katherine Fernandez-Rundle, Miami-Dade State Attorney, for her feedback in this item�s presentation about domestic violence.

Ms. Fernandez-Rundle thanked the Board and the Mayor for their help and support. She expressed concerns her office and the County�s Coordinated Victims Assistance Center (CVAC) had about domestic violence during the COVID-19 pandemic. She stated during and after crises, alcohol abuse and mental health instability increased significantly along with family violence and abuse at homes.

Ms. Fernandez-Rundle reported during the current pandemic domestic violence related arrests decreased by approximately 60 percent and mentioned this was not due to the lack of police responses. She noted there was a nine percent decrease in application for orders of protection and shelter capacity remained flat throughout the County.

Ms. Fernandez-Rundle wanted to let the community know through awareness campaigns that in spite of the County�s Safer At Home policy, domestic violence victims did not have to remain trapped in abusive relationships. She identified services which were available to victims of domestic abuse, which included police, courts, CVAC, shelters, and more. She announced her office along with CVAC had upgraded the social media capabilities of the County�s hotline, now referred to as the help line.

Ms. Fernandez-Rundle requested the Board�s support with the campaign.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa thanked Ms. Fernandez-Rundle and Ms. Ivon Mesa, CVAC Director, for their continued efforts to improve the domestic violence help line and spoke about the intent of related Agenda Item 11A44.

Ordinance 20-37
Mover: Audrey M. Edmonson
Seconder: Rebeca Sosa
Vote: 9 - 4
No: Monestime , Higgins , Suarez , Cava
  REPORT: Commissioner Higgins noted an amendment to the item, which was made by Vice Chairwoman Sosa that was read by Assistant County Attorney Oren Rosenthal.

�The proposed amendment will be on handwritten page 9, and subsection 8. It will add the following at the end of the section: �Additionally, if the hearing examiner finds that there is a violation of the Miami-Dade County Conflict of Interest and Code of Ethics Ordinance by any participant in the competitive process, the Clerk of the Board shall immediately provide copies of the protested recommendation, the Hearing Examiner�s report, and recommendation and all other documents and transcripts of the bid protest hearing to the Executive Director of the Miami-Dade County Commission on Ethics and the Public Trust.��
The amendment was moved by Chairwoman Edmonson and seconded by Vice Chairwoman Sosa.

Commissioner Monestime expressed his concerns with the item because he felt the current process was efficient. He explained the current process required the staff recommendations and hearing examiner�s opinion to go directly to the Board. If the hearing examiner and staff disagreed, the proposer could go to the Board, who would then be able to vote on any protested item. It also allowed the County to take corrective action as applicable by law. He added the item removed the ability to protest and without recourse.

Mr. Rosenthal explained under the proposed ordinance the Administration was not allowed to change recommendations prior to consideration by the Board. It also enabled the Board to hear recommendations from both the staff recommendations and the hearing examiner before making decisions. Furthermore, the Board still retained its legislative prerogatives in the award of the contract and the prosecution of procurement.

Commissioner Monestime stated the current process was not cumbersome and he did not have any issues with it. He concluded he would not support the item.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa reminded the Board since new commissioners were being elected and would be unfamiliar with the County�s laws, the current commissioners needed to provide all the information about the process of protested recommendations from all involved parties to the future newly elected commissioners.

Mr. Rosenthal elaborated there were currently two parallel processes: the bid protest process and the commission on ethics process. Under the proposed amendment, if during the bid protest there was evidence of code of ethics or cone of silence violations this information would be forwarded to the chairperson of the Commission of Ethics and Public Trust (CEPT) during the parallel process of prosecuting the code of ethics.

Commissioner Diaz voiced his support for the proposed amendment, however he asked who determined a violation. Mr. Rosenthal replied if there was a violation in the hearing examiner�s opinion, this would be conveyed in a report which would be forwarded to the chairperson of the CEPT. He also confirmed with Commissioner Diaz this information could be passed to other offices, such as the OIG.

Mr. Rosenthal also clarified to Mayor Gimenez that under the current process the Administration was able to take corrective action on any issues with the bid process in response to the hearing examiner�s report before it went to the Board. The item involved the Board during the process before the Administration could take any corrective actions.

Mayor Gimenez asked if he was prohibited from agreeing with the hearing examiner�s findings and was informed by Chairwoman Edmonson he would not be prohibited.

Commissioner Monestime stated the item placed additional delays in the process which prevented the Mayor from taking expedient corrective actions before the reports went to the Board. Commissioners Heyman and Levine Cava agreed with his point.

Commissioner Levine Cava suggested a workshop to examine all the contents of the processes and put them in the context of the overall procurement process. She also declared she would not support the item.

Commissioner Diaz proposed an amendment which ensured all the findings, recommendations and information about the processes would be delivered to the Board. The amendment was seconded by Vice Chairwoman Sosa.

Mayor Gimenez declared although he did not have any qualms with the hearing examiner�s reports going to the Board, he was concerned the item did not allow the Administration to concur with the hearing examiner during the period when both findings were presented to the Board. He stated as it was written in the item, he was not allowed to make corrections until after the findings were presented and he opined the Administration had the right to take correction actions.

Chairwoman Edmonson responded the item permitted the Administration to make changes and recommendations, which included corrective actions, before its reports were presented.

Commissioner Suarez voiced his concern over the issue of procurement, which he opined needed major reform. He added the item did not adequately reform the process and said he would not support the item.

It was moved by Chairwoman Edmonson that the foregoing ordinance be amended to "be on handwritten page 9, and subsection 8. It will add the following at the end of the section: �Additionally, if the hearing examiner finds that there is a violation of the Miami-Dade County Conflict of Interest and Code of Ethics Ordinance by any participant in the competitive process, the Clerk of the Board shall immediately provide copies of the protested recommendation, the Hearing Examiner�s report, and recommendation and all other documents and transcripts of the bid protest hearing to the Executive Director of the Miami-Dade County Commission on Ethics and the Public Trust.��

This motion was seconded by Vice Chairwoman Sosa, and upon being put to a vote, the item passed 9-4. Commissioners Higgins, Levine Cava, Suarez and Monestime voted "No".

  REPORT: Commissioner Martinez raised the issue of the limited authority of Community Council Members and opined Council Members did not have the same authority as Commissioners. He reported cases of Council Members issuing certificates with the County seal despite their lack of authority to do so and argued these actions misrepresented the level of authority they possessed.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa concurred with Commissioner Martinez�s comments and commended the County Attorney�s Office for recognizing this issue.

Commissioner Diaz stated his support for the item and recalled a situation where he encountered a Council Member wearing a shirt with the County logo and claiming the accompanying authority.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed ordinance as presented.

  RESOLUTION APPROVING PROFESSIONAL SERVICES AGREEMENT BETWEEN MIAMI-DADE COUNTY AND CDM SMITH, INC.; FOR STORMWATER MASTER PLAN, CONTRACT NO. E18-MDAD-03 IN AN AMOUNT NOT TO EXCEED $3,308,250.00 FOR A TERM OF FOUR YEARS WITH TWO ONE-YEAR OPTIONS TO EXTEND; AND AUTHORIZING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR�S DESIGNEE TO EXECUTE THE AGREEMENT AND TO EXERCISE THE EXTENSION AND TERMINATION PROVISIONS CONTAINED THEREIN(Aviation Department) Adopted

Absent: Bovo, Jr.
  REPORT: Commissioner Jordan alerted the Board that according to the Commissioner Auditor�s research notes, CDM Smith, Inc. (CDM) had pending litigation, expired Professional Services Agreements (PSA) and two low-performance scores. She questioned if the Administration was aware of these issues and was still willing to award the company a contract as recommended in the foregoing proposed resolution.

Mr. Lester Sola, Director of Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD), informed the Board that CDM had over 70 evaluations in the County with a current score of 3.7 out of 4.0. He opined their work history was exceptional and stated in the instances where the company received low-performance scores from the Water and Sewer Department and PortMiami due to issues with timely delivery; the issues were ultimately corrected and the company complied with delivery of services.

Mr. Sola noted it was not uncommon for large companies like CDM to be engaged in litigation at some point and the result of the company�s pending litigation could not be predicted.

Mr. Sola added his department met with the company�s compliance officer and leaders, and reiterated his confidence with the company�s ability to deliver services.

Regarding the expired PSAs, Mr. Sola reported they were allowed to expire because his MDAD no longer needed the services at that time.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

Absent: Bovo, Jr.
  REPORT: Vice Chairwoman Sosa voiced her concerns regarding the lack of inclusion of local vendors in the pool and questioned the need for the County to purchase physical fitness equipment at this time for the Fire Rescue Department (FRD) and the Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces (PROS) Department since these departments were closed. She questioned if the County should wait until reopening before making purchases.

Ms. Namita Uppal, Chief Procurement Officer of the Internal Services Department (ISD), explained the intent of the item was to establish an open list where vendors could be added at any time and reassured the Board members that staff would seek out more local vendors.

Ms. Uppal stated the FRD needed to replace their old fitness equipment as they upgraded their stations and PROS required the equipment for their preventive maintenance program.

In response to Commissioner Levine Cava�s question regarding the urgency of purchasing the equipment, Ms. Maria Nardi, Director of PROS, explained the department needed to have the equipment repaired or replaced before they could reopen the facilities.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

  REPORT: Chairwoman Edmonson alerted the Board that according to the contract in the proposed resolution Goodwill Industries of South Florida, Inc. was required to pay $13,000 monthly to the County for collecting lost and found items at the Miami International Airport (MIA). She read an April 1, 2020 article in the Miami Herald which reported that the company laid off 300 employees for budgetary reasons. She questioned if Goodwill still needed to pay the County.

Mr. Lester Sola, Director of Miami-Dade Aviation Department, suggested Goodwill be allowed to pick up the materials and sell them. Goodwill would not have to pay the County for three months and if the current economic situation did not improve, this program could be extended to them for another three months. He stressed the fees during this time period would be forgiven and allowed Goodwill to profit significantly.

Commissioner Martineze reminded the Board the contract was a bid waiver contract.

It was moved by Commissioner Jordan that the foregoing resolution be amended. This motion was seconded by Chairwoman Edmonson, and upon being put to a vote, the item passed 13-0.

  REPORT: During the reasonable opportunity for the public to be heard, Mr. Rick Beasley, Executive Director of CareerSource South Florida, suggested an amendment for the proposed resolution based on negotiations CareerSource had with Monroe County.

Commissioner Jordan pulled the item for the amendment, which was read into the record.

First Assistant County Attorney Geri Bonzon-Keenan read the amendment into the record: �10A1 shall be amended as follows; all language on pages 8 and 9 pertaining to the proportional share of financial liability for Miami-Dade County and Monroe County shall be stricken and replaced with language that allocates three percent financial liability to Monroe County and 97 percent to Miami-Dade County.�

Vice Chairwoman Sosa pointed out that compared to other counties Miami-Dade County always carried the highest burdens and cited this amendment as an example. She added this was not fair to County taxpayers and it will be difficult to balance the County budget in the future if funding is not used properly.

It was moved by Commissioner Jordan that the foregoing resolution be amended. This motion was seconded by Chairwoman Edmonson, and upon being put to a vote, the item passed 13-0.

  RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR�S DESIGNEE TO PROVIDE UPDATES OR BRIEFINGS TO THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS DURING CERTAIN DECLARED STATES OF EMERGENCY, SUCH AS THE CORONAVIRUS DISEASE 2019 (COVID-19) PANDEMIC Adopted
Resolution R-420-20
Mover: Sally A. Heyman
Seconder: Dennis C. Moss
Vote: 13 - 0
  REPORT: Chairwoman Edmonson requested a status report on social distancing and other safety measures employed by the County�s correctional facilities to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mr. Daniel Junior, Director of the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department (MDCR), noted on April 29, 2020, a 45-day preliminary injunction order was partially granted by the federal court in response to emergency requests by seven inmates housed at the Metro West Detention Center in response to the pandemic. He explained the injunction required MDCR to provide hygienic items and supplies and confirmed that the department had taken proactive measures and provided these items during the early onset of the pandemic, as recommended in the March 23, 2020 guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). He also pointed out MDCR completed these measures before the CDC�s report was issued.

Mr. Junior reported since March 12, 2020, MDCR had collaborated with the courts, the Miami-Dade Police Department and the State Attorney�s office to reduce inmate population by 25 percent which resulted in the release of 1,051 individuals. He clarified the released inmates were already scheduled for release in 2020.

Mr. Junior advised the Board members that the Metro West detention facility population was reduced from over 4,000 inmates to just over 3,200 and noted MDCR also compiled reports identifying older inmates with chronic health issues and those who were released early.

Mr. Junior stated the majority of the allegations were dispelled with regard to hygiene, supplies, and shower and laundry facilities by experts who visited the Metro West facility and the only issue found was with its large inmate population. He pointed out the occupancy rate was already at 66 percent and the experts� report did not specify a recommended occupancy rate to ensure social distancing. Mr. Junior noted inmates� beds were already positioned six feet apart, which was required by the Florida Model Jail Standard, before the social distancing guidelines were issued by the CDC.

Mr. Junior listed the steps MDCR implemented to strengthen hygienic and social distancing procedures such as increased cleanings and a requirement that all staff and inmates wear masks throughout the day. He reassured the Board members that MDCR has been proactive in dealing with the pandemic.

Chairwoman Edmonson requested Mr. Junior to provide an updated status report at the next BCC meeting on May 19, 2020 and asked for the report to detail how one of the two decommissioned facilities could be used solely for inmates diagnosed with COVID-19.

Mr. Junior responded the decommissioned facilities were not habitable and could not be used.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

Resolution R-421-20

Vote: 13 - 0
  REPORT: Chairwoman Edmonson explained the amendment made to the proposed resolution which directed the Mayor to send all registered County voters who have not requested vote-by-mail ballots instructions on how to request ballots, along with instructions on updating their signatures.

Commissioner Levine Cava voiced her concerns with the item because she opined the letters to the voters should include forms to request vote-by-mail ballots which avoided confusion and delays. She pointed out there was funding available from the CARES Act to assist the County in the elections and that Broward County was mailing forms to their voters not registered to vote by mail.

Ms. Christina White, Supervisor of Elections for Miami-Dade County, stated Elections� goals were to ensure not only that County residents voted but that they felt safe voting by mail. She elaborated the proposed approach was more expedient and efficient.

Additionally, 1.2 million forms needed to be mailed to all County voters in a seven-week period if Elections followed Commissioner Levine Cava�s suggestion. Doing so necessitated coordination with the Post Office and needed to be implemented in stages. Ms. White said the letter, sent to about 520,000 households, instructed voters to go online or call Elections to request the forms, which could be sent out quicker.

Commissioner Levine Cava pointed out not all voters had internet access or were able to visit libraries to download forms. She opined the letters should include forms but said she would support the item.

Chairwoman Edmonson asked Ms. White if the forms could be sent in the letters and Ms. White answered one form per household could be sent. Chairwoman Edmonson amended the item to have vote-by-mail forms sent with the letters; this was seconded by Commissioner Levine Cava.

Assistant County Attorney Oren Rosenthal informed Commissioner Martinez that the voters� signatures in the vote-by-mail forms could not be used for signature verifications. Ms. White affirmed voters who wished to update their signatures could visit the Elections� website to download voter registration applications.

Commissioner Martinez noted that some voters were disadvantaged and would not be able to vote. This included the elderly, non-English speakers or residents who were not technologically up to date. He was not certain if the efforts would be able to target everyone. Ms. White assured him additional staff would be hired to reach as many people as possible.

Commissioner Higgins voiced her support for the item and asked Ms. White to present a social media spending plan at the next Board meeting. She also proposed another amendment to have County libraries and parks distribute vote-by-mail forms for residents without internet access.

After Ms. White confirmed this could be done, Chairwoman Edmonson made a second amendment to direct the Mayor to implement Commissioner Higgins� suggestion. Both amendments were read by Mr. Rosenthal into the record.

It was moved by Commissioner Jordan that the foregoing resolution be amended to have County libraries and parks distribute vote-by-mail forms for residents without internet access and to direct the Mayor to implement the amendment.

This motion was seconded by Commissioner Martinez and upon being put to a vote the Agenda Item passed as amended by a vote of 13-0.

  REPORT: Commissioner Jordan requested clarification as to what the proposed resolution would do for businesses at the Miami International Airport (MIA) which were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic but were not eligible to receive federal financial relief. She asked if the proposed resolution disqualified these businesses from receiving financial relief from the County.

Commissioner Higgins explained some small businesses at MIA were not eligible for federal aid because of the way the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was written and pointed out the Small Business Administration�s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) could be utilized by these businesses. She proceeded to review the PPP program and noted 75 percent of the funds were required to be used to pay salaries, at no interest, while the remainder could be applied to operational expenses such as rent and utilities at a 1 percent interest rate.

Commissioner Higgins stated businesses could also apply for Emergency Disaster Loans with interest rates of 3.75 percent and reviewed the qualification requirements.

Commissioner Higgins concluded the County�s aid would not be enough in the long term for the small businesses at MIA because it only covered rent and added other businesses and non-profit organizations throughout the County utilized and benefitted from the two aforementioned programs. She noted that many of the small businesses at MIA were not aware of their options and should be better informed about them.

Commissioner Jordan voiced her opposition to the item and argued it punished small businesses since financial relief from the County was contingent on the businesses applying for and receiving federal aid.

Commissioner Higgins reiterated the item encouraged businesses to take advantage of all available options for financial help.

Commissioner Jordan reiterated her concerns regarding the item and restated her objection.

Mr. Lester Sola, Director of Miami-Dade Aviation, informed the Board that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) did not require businesses to apply for non-federal aid as a condition for receiving federal aid and explained airports were authorized to offer the three-month aid program for rent with an option for another three months.

Chairwoman Edmonson echoed Commissioner Jordan�s observation that the item mandated small businesses to apply for federal aid, including loans, in order to receive financial aid from the County and thus, would not support the item.

Commissioner Diaz also concurred and opined the loans imposed more financial burdens on the businesses.

Commissioner Levine Cava indicated her support for the item and stressed the funds were beneficial to employees, who could be brought back to work. She emphasized if there was federal funding available and businesses were eligible they should acquire the aid instead of relying on the County and taxpayers. Commissioner Levine Cava contended these efforts stimulated the economy and kept struggling businesses viable.

In response to Commissioner Levine Cava�s request for clarification as to whether employees had to return to work in order for businesses to receive aid, Commissioner Higgins explained not all employees needed to return. She clarified the PPP loans allowed businesses to decide which employees and the number of employees to return and pointed out larger, emergency loans could be utilized going forward.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa stated she could not support the foregoing proposed resolution as it attempted to amend an item she sponsored in a previous Board meeting (See Agenda Item 14A4, Legislative File No. 200638 at the April 7, 2020 BCC Meeting) and opined all business needed to be better informed about all financial relief options and risks associated with the loans and grants.

Commissioner Bovo indicated he could not support the foregoing item and concurred with Vice Chairwoman Sosa regarding government intrusion into private businesses. He pointed out that many of the businesses in the airport had already received rent and Metropolitan Airports Commission relief and suggested the Board wait to see how other related legislation performed before introducing new items.

Commissioner Martinez opined the item imposed mandates on MIA businesses and stated it would take a long time for businesses to recover economically because the County would not be able to immediately open after the crisis. He noted some businesses would not be able to recover or rehire their employees and added that the County may never receive returns on the investments for providing aid to the businesses and as such he could not support the item.

Commissioner Moss stated many programs did not deliver as proposed and argued only large businesses profited from the programs whereas smaller ones incurred more debt. He stated he believed the same would occur with this item and for that reason, he would not be able to support the item.

Mayor Gimenez expressed his concern about the financial situation with MIA and the rest of the County and voiced his desire to save as much money as possible in anticipation of severe budget shortfalls for Fiscal Year 2021/2022 due to the economic impact of the pandemic.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

Vote: 12 - 1
No: Souto
  REPORT: During the Board meeting, Commissioner Souto voiced his opposition to the proposed resolution, which allowed Santa�s Enchanted Forest, Inc. to operate a temporary fair at Tropical Park in November and December 2020. He cited concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic as a reason for not allowing the fair to take place.

Commissioner Diaz noted an amendment for Commissioner Souto to be included in the item�s discussion because he was the commissioner of the district.

Commissioner Suarez admitted he was conflicted over this issue. Although he acknowledged the value of the fair there were issues that had to be addressed. He submitted an email for the record about the item which detailed input from Mr. Ernest Thomas, President of Horse Country Miami, and his response, as well.

In the email, Mr. Thomas urged Commissioner Suarez to vote against the item for the following reasons:

� The fair was promoted as a Christmas event which in reality operated from October through January.
� The Equestrian Center was prohibited by the previous lease for large events during this time period.
� Section 7.01 of The Home Rule Amendment Charter stated that County parks �Shall be protected from commercial development and exploitation��
� While Section 7.02 allowed for exceptions such as temporary fairs, the event required the building of permanent structures.
� The Chairman of the Parks Committee and Commissioner Souto voted against the resolution.
� Fear of a second wave of COVID-19 during this time period
� A November 2019 shooting in the park perpetrated by an employee of Santa�s Enchanted Forest.
� The Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department issued a Notice of Non-Compliance with Agreement to Santa�s Enchanted Forest in February 11, 2020.

Commissioner Suarez replied via email he would investigate the violation and mentioned the bureaucracy involved with the �negotiated bids� were costly. He also questioned why Commissioner Souto and he were not consulted since they belonged to the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Committee. He proposed a deferral of the item.

During the meeting, Commissioner Suarez also offered the fair might not be compatible with the park�s aesthetics, although compromises could be achieved. He asked for input from the Board.

Commissioner Levine Cava reminded the Board delays and time constraints did not allow for a full-bid process. She wanted assurance the Equestrian Center would not be negatively impacted by the fair because it was a unique aspect of the park. She elaborated the fair inhibited the proper use of the Equestrian Center by its patrons.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa clarified she was not a co-sponsor of the proposed resolution, though she was listed as one. She stressed the contract, which expired, was supposed to go to a competitive bid. However, due to time limits it was best to move forward by allowing the fair for this year. She also offered the event provided a venue for children during the holiday season and that Santa�s Enchanted Forest would pay the County if a COVID-19 resurgence prevented the opening of the fair.

Chairwoman Edmonson agreed with Vice Chairwoman Sosa and added the fair acted as a placeholder for this year and allowed for a proper Request for Proposal (RFP) process to be implemented next year. She inquired why this situation was not addressed before the contract expired in March 2020.

Mayor Gimenez advised the Board a lease extension was not possible and he preferred an RFP. He doubted the fair would occur because of concerns with COVID-19 and social distancing issues. He advised using this situation as a respite to properly plan for another venue instead, however, he announced he would follow the direction of the Board.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa reported she first learned of this situation in the last committee meeting and procurement was supposed to have occurred before expiration. She wanted confirmation that the contract could not be extended.

Assistant County Attorney Melanie Spencer confirmed this with Vice Chairwoman Sosa and clarified an expired contract could not be extended. According to Ms. Spencer, the Mayor recommended a new contract with a similar type of arrangement.

Mayor Gimenez addressed the issue over why the contract was allowed to expire. He recalled that the Administration was asked by committees and other entities not to move the RFP along.

Commissioner Martinez reminded the Board the parks department received a proposal over two years ago from the Oasis at Tropical Park, which failed. He concurred with the others that the County would not get an RFP in time and suggested using Santa�s Enchanted Forest for one more year to at least generate revenue. He concluded the item only directed for a meeting between the Administration and Santa�s Enchanted Forest.

It was moved by Commissioner Martinez that the foregoing resolution be amended to include Commissioner Souto in the item's discussion because he was commissioner of the district. This motion was seconded by Commissioner Jordan, and upon being put to a vote, the item passed 12-1; Commissioner Souto voted "No".

Resolution R-439-20

Seconder: Rebeca Sosa
Vote: 12 - 0
Absent: Bovo, Jr.
  REPORT: Commissioner Bovo voiced his concerns about the item which urged the Governor to extend evictions moratorium for an additional 45 days and argued not all eviction cases were related to the COVID-19 pandemic. He noted that he had been contacted by landlords concerned about eviction cases filed prior to the pandemic.

Commissioner Levine Cava reminded the Board the County implemented eviction moratoriums during Hurricane Irma and contended this situation should not be any different. The moratorium, she pointed out, only deferred rent payments for those struggling financially during the pandemic and noted rent payments were still due and rightful evictions would occur after the crisis.

Commissioner Levine Cava commented on landlords involved in illegal activities against their tenants such as cutting off basic utilities to force them to leave and asked the Administration to investigate this matter.

Mayor Gimenez reassured the Board members that the police were directed not to enforce evictions and stated utilities would not be shut off for residents.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa stated while she supported the item, she was concerned because the moratorium only deferred the rent, which incurred more debt for tenants later and could lead to judgments entered against them. She stated it was important for residents to be educated about their responsibilities as tenants and the details of the moratorium.

Commissioner Jordan concurred with Vice Chairwoman Sosa�s comments regarding the need for education among tenants about the moratorium and suggested hosting a town hall meeting for landlords and tenants alike to provide more information on their rights.

Commissioner Levine Cava acknowledged the concerns raised by Chairwoman Edmonson, Vice Chairwoman Sosa and Commissioners Diaz and Jordan and assured them the moratorium was just a short-term extension and it did not change the legalities of leases.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

Resolution R-446-20
Mover: Dennis C. Moss
Seconder: Daniella Levine Cava
Vote: 11 - 2
No: Souto , Bovo, Jr.
  REPORT: Commissioner Bovo voiced his objection to the proposed resolution which urged the United States Congress to pass H.R. 6185, the Save Our Springs Act. He pointed out the proposed legislation would impose a six cents tax per gallon of water extracted from public springs and underground water sources on bottled water companies. This would result in increased taxes, which he opposed and would not support.

Commissioner Moss opined the tax was fair because the companies that extracted the water did not pay for the water itself and profited from the sales of the water to consumers.

Commissioner Levine Cave agreed with Commissioner Moss and added the extraction was not beneficial to the environment because the water was a finite resource. She stated this was a viable reason to impose the tax.

Commissioner Sosa voiced her concerns about consumers having to pay the tax.

Commissioner Moss clarified the tax applied solely to private water bottling companies and consumers would not have to pay for the tax. He noted the tax created fairness in the extraction process, which threatened the public water resources.

Vice Chairwoman Sosa indicated her support for the item.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

  REPORT: Commissioner Heyman voiced her concerns about the Public Health Trust (PHT) funding video communications between COVID-19 patients and their families and noted it would be difficult for the County to control the funding for hospitals aside from Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Commissioner Heyman stated she did not want the implementation costs to be prohibitive for patients and their families.

Commissioner Bovo asked how the video services system worked and if the hospitals had to provide the technology.

Commissioner Moss thanked the Board for their condolences and support during his father-in-law�s contraction of COVID-19 and subsequent passing from the virus. He recalled his personal experience of not being able to visit his father-in-law and how a doctor arranged for a video call to allow himself and his wife to see him.

Commissioner Moss explained this experience prompted him to sponsor the foregoing proposed resolution and explained the technology was not expensive. He urged the Florida Health Care Administration Agency (FHCAA) to implement these services Statewide at all hospitals during the crisis.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

  REPORT: Commissioner Moss acknowledged it was common to see increased domestic violence incidents during crises and thanked Ms. Katherine Fernandez-Rundle, Miami-Dade State Attorney, for her input on the issue of domestic violence during the COVID-19 pandemic. He requested he be added as a co-sponsor if not already listed.

Chairwoman Edmonson and Commissioners Diaz, Monestime and Higgins joined Commissioner Moss in their praise for the work done by Ms. Fernandez-Rundle and thanked Vice Chairwoman Sosa for sponsoring the foregoing proposed resolution. Commissioner Higgins requested she be added as a co-sponsor and reassured the public that the shelters were compliant with all rules and conditions established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Commissioner Levine Cava pointed out the crisis was difficult for children as well and noted reports of child abuse decreased because children were not in school or public spaces where abuse could be observed and/or identified by other people. She added there was an increase of self-reported child abuse cases with two-thirds of abusers being family members and eighty percent residing in the same residence.

Commissioner Levine Cava suggested implementing a process whereby children could alert a teacher of abuse on the online learning platform.

There being no further comments, the Board proceeded to vote on the proposed resolution as presented.

"Section 2-1795D further provides that the Board made by motion suspend these requirements consequently given that Miami-Dade County has been in a local state of emergency relating to the COVID-19 pandemic since March 12, 2020, I move that the above reference requirements of subsection Section 2-1795D be suspended for this budgetary cycle and that the commission auditor be required to submit this report to each County Commissioner by July 31, 2020.�
