5. REGULAR AGENDA

5.A. ADMINISTRATION

5.A.1. RESOLUTION R-99-760.1

RESOLUTION ESTABLISHING THE SOUTH COUNTY JURY TRIAL FEASIBILITY COMMITTEE, CHOOSING ONE OF TWO ALTERNATIVES FOR COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP. ONE ALTERNATIVE BROADENS MEMBERSHIP GEOGRAPHICALLY; THE OTHER PROVIDES FOR A SOUTH COUNTY- ORIENTED GROUP. ADOPTED WITH DIRECTION 5-4-99

MOTION to adopt a resolution creating a South County Jury Trial Feasibility Committee. Membership shall consist of 13 members appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, with one member recommended by each of the following: Alliance of Delray Residential Associations; West Boca Community Council; Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations; Progressive Residents of Delray; Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Palm Beach County, Walter N. Colbath, Jr.; South County Bar Association; City of Boynton Beach; City of Delray Beach; City of Boca Raton; and four members selected by the Board who represent both North and West County. Motion by Commissioner Roberts and seconded by Commissioner Marcus.

Commissioner Roberts explained that she would like the North County and West County residents included so that they would have the opportunity to provide input concerning the costs involved in converting other courthouses for jury trials.

Commissioner Marcus stated that, based on Chief Judge Walter N. Colbath, Jr.'s comments, it made sense for the Board to look at all areas of the County as part of their decision-making process.

Commissioner Aaronson maintained that involving residents of the North and West County should be done in the future. He suggested a task force made up of South County residents only creating a report to be brought back to the Board in eight months to a year, and at that time have the North and West County residents become involved.

FIRST SUBSTITUTE MOTION to adopt a resolution establishing the South County Jury Trial Feasibility Committee. Membership shall consist of 13 members appointed by the Board of County Commissioners, with one member recommended by each of the following: Alliance of Delray Residential Associations; West Boca Community Council; Coalition of Boynton West Residential Associations; Progressive Residents of Delray; Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Palm Beach County, Walter N. Colbath, Jr.; South County Bar Association; City of Boynton Beach; City of Delray; City of Boca Raton; and four members selected by County Commissioners at-large who are residents of or who represent South County. Motion by Commissioner Aaronson and seconded by Commissioner McCarty.

Ms. Roberts pointed out that the report should include information regarding the projected costs and/or needs of the other two areas, which further indicated the need to add North and West County representatives. She emphasized that the majority of the committee, 9 of 13, represented South County.

Mr. Aaronson acknowledged Ms. Roberts's position but contended that the South County effort and impetus had been so great that they should do the foundation work. He stated that if too many people from too many places were involved, the whole process would be prolonged unnecessarily.

Commissioner Masilotti declared that there were problems facing the whole County, and he could not support something that would take up an issue in only one area. He endorsed Ms. Roberts's motion, or, as an alternative, he wanted to offer a motion that would allow three studies to take place at the present time, including North, West, and South.

Commissioner McCarty pointed out that the courthouse in Delray was built specifically for jury trials. In order to support Ms. Roberts's motion, Ms. McCarty wanted direction given to the committee's participants to determine how jury trials could be made to work in Delray.

Commissioner Lee stated that she favored having one committee because she felt a planning group was needed that would have input from the total County. She commented that it was her belief that good planning is not done in isolation. She stressed that the needs of the total County should be considered along with the input from the judges in order to determine whether jury trials in all three parts of the County could be made to work. Concentration should be on South County first. Ms. Lee asserted that she was in favor of Ms. Roberts's suggestion.

SECOND SUBSTITUTE MOTION to create two committees, the first one as described by Commissioner Aaronson. The second one consisting of West County and North County representatives not exceeding 11 members. The resolution would come back to the Board in two weeks. Both committees would have the same staff support and would work independently. Motion by Commissioner Marcus and seconded by Commissioner Aaronson.

PUBLIC COMMENT:

Frank Behrman, representing the Alliance of Delray Residential Associations, brought out that no one throughout the County except for the South County residents had asked for information encouraging a second jury system. He asked that South County be allowed to do the investigation and noted that the Board could appoint other committees if they wished. He thanked the Commissioners for all their efforts.

UPON CALL FOR A VOTE, the motion carried 4-2. Commissioners Lee and Roberts opposed. Commissioner Newell absent.

Commissioner Roberts inquired if any Board member had a problem with her nominating herself to the committee. Commissioners McCarty and Aaronson expressed concern about the setting of a precedent. Director of Public Affairs Denise Cote announced that her expectations of the committee included updates or status reports to the Board, but, unless the need for extraordinary expenditures arose, voting would not be required. Commissioner Aaronson declared that in the future any time a Commissioner wanted to sit on a committee, it should be approved by the Board. The Board agreed Commissioner Roberts could appoint herself to the Committee.

5.E.1.

a.

RECOMMENDATION OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMMISSION THAT THE BOARD NOT ISSUE A NEW REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR THE PROVISION OF MISDEMEANOR PROBATION SERVICES WHEN THE CURRENT CONTRACT EXPIRES DECEMBER 5, 1999. APPROVED 5-4-99

b. DOCUMENT R-99-764-D

CONTRACT WITH THE CURRENT COUNTY PROBATION SERVICES VENDOR, PRIDE INTEGRATED SERVICES, INC., FOR A THREE-YEAR PERIOD FROM DECEMBER 6, 1999, THROUGH DECEMBER 5, 2002. THE CONTRACT PROVIDES FOR A $5,000 PAYMENT FROM PRIDE TO THE COUNTY TO MONITOR THE CONTRACT. (AMENDS R-93-1616-D) APPROVED 5-4-99

MOTION to accept staff recommendation not to issue a new Request for Proposals (RFP) for the provision of misdemeanor Probation Services and to approve the contract. Motion by Commissioner Marcus and seconded by Commissioner McCarty.

Commissioner Masilotti wanted clarification for the public record as to why staff did not want a new RFP.

Criminal Justice Commission Executive Director Diana Cunningham responded that the County's current purchasing policy and ordinance is that when contracting with a not-for-profit vendor, it is not necessary to go out for bid. She pointed out that the County does an audit of Pride services annually. She added that all the members of the Probation Advisory Board and others actually involved in dealing with the service delivery of the vendor were pleased with the current vendor and believed that it would be disruptive to go through the RFP process. She further explained that the reason that Pride had come forward this year asking for a three-year contract as opposed to prior years for a one-year contract was that they were attempting to get a loan to purchase computerized hardware and software to upgrade their system, and a three-year contract was needed to show the bank that they would be able to generate the revenue to pay back their loan.

Pride's Corporate Counsel Joe Considine called attention to Pride's long history with the County. He asserted that Pride had received unanimous approval from the Criminal Justice Commission for the proposal and maintained that it had done everything that had been asked of it in terms of modifying its scope of services.

State Attorney Barry Krischer spoke in favor of the proposal, noting Pride's excellent performance history and high approval ratings by the various groups that review it. He indicated that it would be unfair to penalize Pride at this time because it needed a three-year contract in order to provide enhanced services to the groups that have benefitted.

Chief of the County Court Division of the State Attorney's office and Chair of the Criminal Justice Commission's Probation Advisory Committee Ted Booras addressed the concern about not putting the proposal out for bid. He mentioned that six years ago when the County went for the RFP, it had been agreed to utilize one vendor so that it could be monitored, and that Pride had been the only one that had submitted a bid. Because of Pride's good job and cooperation, it had been recommended to extend the contract to three years. Any other agency would have been offered only a one-year contract. He also reported that the committee had not heard from any other vendor wishing to be part of the bid process.

Chief Executive Officer of Pride Integrated Services, Inc., Maureen Ferrill emphasized the quality of services that Pride has been providing the County.

Commissioner Masilotti questioned if the County were bound by any ordinance to put the proposal out to bid.

Assistant County Attorney Dawn Wynn answered that the County was not bound by any ordinance because the Purchasing Ordinance exempts not-for-profit companies.

Commissioner Aaronson stressed that the best probation people available were needed and that Pride had demonstrated its competence. He asserted that this was a situation in which quality outweighed everything else.

UPON CALL FOR A VOTE, the motion carried 6-0. Commissioner Newell absent.

In regard to that Ms. Marcus indicated that there was a letter to the editor in today's Palm Beach Post from the Clerk of the Circuit Court Dorothy H. Wilken, to which Ms. Marcus intended to respond, regarding monies the County received for savings in the Florida Retirement System (FRS). Ms. Marcus explained that $10 million of that belonged to the Sheriff's Office, and $5 million was allocated to enterprise funds, which were not available to the County's general fund, leaving a deficit of $1.1 million. Of greater concern, the County would lose the rest of the intangible personal property tax next year, which would likely be about $12 million. Commissioner Marcus urged the Board to plan for that now and to consider the FRS savings for this year and whether or not to put this year's savings away for next year.

CONVENTION CENTER UPDATE AND CONCERNS REGARDING LITIGATION PERTAINING TO THE CONVENTION CENTER PROPERTY. DISCUSSED WITH DIRECTION 5-4-99

County Administrator Weisman reported that the City of West Palm Beach had approved the basic agreement and site plan at a meeting on May 3, 1999. He indicated that these would be brought back to the Board within 30 days for approval. Mr. Weisman also pointed out that there were issues associated with the site development left unresolved.

Chief Deputy County Attorney Gordon P. Selfridge called attention to a development order amendment that became effective a year ago which would force the County Commission to move to Phase II of the Convention Center by 2010, not giving the Board enough time to evaluate the Convention Center and its needs from Phase I to Phase II. He noted that the amendment, drainage permits, and ultimate site plan approval were conditions of closing that the City would have to fulfill prior to closing, currently projected to be October 1, 1999.

Commissioner McCarty asked if the County had been notified as to the status of any litigation concerning the proposed property. Mr. Selfridge answered that in the past there had been litigation over development rights, but after the Community Redevelopment Agency's obtaining the property and consolidating it for the Convention Center and CityPlace properties, the County had been assured that all of that litigation had been resolved.

Commissioner McCarty expressed concern that there were currently two active litigation cases relating to the Convention Center property: one before the United States Supreme Court; the other in federal court having to do with David Palladino's first right of refusal. She also mentioned another case about to be filed involving fraud against the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Ms. McCarty emphasized that the Board must have complete certainty of a clear title at closing. She asked if the County had a bond requiring reimbursement from the City in the event of an invalid title.

Mr. Selfridge explained that normally the due diligence process performed from the time of signing the purchase/sale agreement up to the actual closing would reveal any problems with the title. He reported that the County does not have a performance bond.

Commissioner Aaronson commented that:

  • Active litigation would impede the County's objective to obtain clear title of the property.
  • Escalating costs for the project would continue unless the city and County were able to reach closure on the property soon.
  • Due to escalating costs, the County's financial position for operating costs had declined.

Deputy Count Administrator Patrick Miller commented that the Tourist Development Council had offered its determination that the County needs a 100,000-square-foot exhibition hall and is discussing that with the architects. Ms. Roberts queried whether that discussion ultimately needed to come before the Board. In answer, Mr. Miller explained that a mini-committee had been going forward and dealing with the architects and others involved in order to bring suggestions both reasonable and achievable before the Board.

Commissioner Roberts stressed her concern that the city had not acted in good faith in regard to active litigation. Commissioner Aaronson proposed demanding an answer from the city as to whether the reports of litigation were true. Commissioner McCarty stressed the need for the city's answer to be independently verified. Following discussion, the Board informally agreed for staff to report back as soon as possible regarding the validity of reports of active litigation involving the Convention Center property.

TIME CERTAIN - 11:00 A.M.

5.A.6. INFORMATION SYSTEMS SERVICES

STATUS REPORT ON YEAR 2000 PROJECT. DISCUSSED WITH DIRECTION 5-4-99

Information Systems Services Director Steven Bordelon stated that:

  • The goal of this project was to make sure that the County's mission critical systems were able to operate properly after December 31, 1999. Mission critical systems would include: court systems, financial and payroll systems, permitting and code enforcement, traffic control devices, and emergency dispatching.
  • An assessment of the magnitude of the problem was completed in the summer of 1997. The actual repair work began shortly thereafter and would continue through the rest of the year as well as testing and installing the repaired code.
  • About half of the County's old systems have been retained, and costs range from $68,000 to $523,000 to make them compliant. The other half have been or will be replaced with modern systems ranging in cost from $215,000 to $2.1 million. The total costs would come to $6.5 million spread over a three-year period.
  • Staff was confident that the major systems were in good order but cautioned that some unforseen occurrence could create some disruptions. Problems could arise from some noncompliant items being overlooked, with noncompliant data receivers from external sources, or from customer suppliers creating a ripple effect that could affect the County. Contingency plans were being made to deal with any of these problems.

Facilities Development and Operations Director Audrey Wolf brought out that 75 percent of the project had been completed and was under budget. Property Appraiser's Office Manager of Information Technologies Woodie McDuffie mentioned that in his area the project was ahead of schedule and under budget and that he planned to make the deadline with time left over for testing. Also, Sheriff's Office Administrative Officer of Information Services Herbert Kohl reported that everything there was on schedule and no interruptions in service were expected.

Mr. Bordelon distributed summary reports prepared by the offices of the Clerk, Public Defender, and the State Attorney. Commissioner McCarty asked if he were concerned about anything in those reports. Mr. Bordelon answered in the negative and added that Information Systems Services maintains the Clerk's major financial and court systems.

Commissioner Roberts inquired whether remediation costs for those offices were included in the $6.5 million. Mr. Bordelon replied that the Clerk had a separate financial package for the Child Support system that was not included. Neither the Public Defender's nor the State Attorney's office was included; therefore, there would be some additional costs.

Staff direction was given for a comprehensive report on total costs for all County agencies to include whether these were Article 5 (mandated Criminal Justice costs) and whether the County was responsible for payment, and whether any of the costs could be included in fee-based budgets.
