Summary: On October 20, 2015, the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approved an Agreement (R2015-1484) with JAY for $9,058 under the CDBG Program.  Funding was to partially cover costs associated with the operations of an emergency shelter facility which provides services to homeless men.  On January 8, 2016, JAY confirmed that it will not accept funding provided under the Agreement due to its inability to implement corrective actions required by Findings and Concerns arising from Department of Economic Sustainability’s (DES) monitoring of its Fiscal Year 2014-2015 Agreement (R2014-1473) which provided funding for the same emergency shelter facility.  In a letter dated January 15, 2016 to JAY, DES terminated the Agreement for convenience.  The entire allocated amount of $9,058 will revert to the County.  These are CDBG grant funds which require no local match.

1.         Staff recommends motion to adopt:  a Resolution amending the Florida Department of Health in Palm Beach County Fee Schedule (Resolution R2014-1612) to add fees to provide reduced rates to the self-pay uninsured population for Sexual Transmitted Diseases (STD) medical and laboratory services. SUMMARY: This Resolution amends the fee schedule previously approved on October 21, 2014, R2014-1612, by adding a discounted fee for STD medical and laboratory services for the self-pay uninsured population.  The current fee being charged for patients seeking this service is based on the Medicare rate and is approximately $159.  The proposed fee of $58.20 for new patients and $48.84 for an established (existing) patient will provide for a medical assessment, laboratory services and dispensing of medications.  It is expected that with the addition of reduced fees more patients will be encouraged to seek STD testing and treatment, resulting in more access to care for low income and the uninsured population.  The expected increase in patient volume will negate the decrease in revenue being received for the visit at the current rate.  All fees collected for this service are used to offset the costs of providing these services countywide.

A.        ADMINISTRATION (Cont’d)

 

2.         Staff recommends motion to approve:

 

A) on preliminary reading and advertise for public hearing on May 17, 2016 at 9:30 a.m.: an Ordinance imposing a countywide local government infrastructure surtax of one percent (1.0%) on all authorized taxable transactions occurring within Palm Beach County, as authorized by Section 212.055(2), Florida Statutes, effective beginning January 1, 2017, for a period of ten years; providing that imposition of the surtax shall be contingent on approval at a countywide referendum; providing for distribution of surtax revenues among the county, the municipalities in the county, and the School Board of Palm Beach County, FL; providing for citizen oversight; providing ballot language and directing the Supervisor of Elections to hold a countywide precinct referendum election on November 8, 2016; and

 

B) an interlocal agreement among Palm Beach County, the School Board of Palm Beach County, and the Signatory Municipalities (municipalities representing a majority of incorporated population will bind all) pertaining to the shared distribution and use of the one cent local government infrastructure surtax.

 

SUMMARY:  On March 22, 2016, the Board approved an infrastructure surtax plan for one cent, maximum 10 years, creation of an oversight committee to audit spending for compliance with approved projects, and the following allocations: 48% to the School District, 27.5% to the County, 18.5% to the Municipalities, 4.5% for Economic Development through Cultural Facilities, and 1.5% for Economic Development Incentives. All funding must be expended as prescribed by Florida Statutes and Board of County Commissioners economic development guidelines. 

 

This Ordinance for a one-cent infrastructure surtax includes ballot language for a referendum scheduled for November 8, 2016. If approved by the voters, the surtax will begin on January 1, 2017 for ten years, ending December 31, 2026. In addition to creating an oversight committee(s), a project manager will be hired or assigned to coordinate and monitor the program.

 

The local discretionary sales surtaxes apply to all transactions subject to the state tax imposed on sales, use, services, rentals, admissions, and other authorized transactions. The surtax applies to the first $5,000 of any single taxable tangible personal property item. Items such as groceries, baby food, baby formula, and medicines are exempt from sales tax. Levying this surtax will partially shift the funding responsibility to visitors; about 25% of sales tax in Palm Beach County is paid by visitors, as opposed to funding infrastructure backlog through property taxes.

 

Florida’s Department of Revenue will distribute the surtax directly to the School District, each Municipality, and the County. The Economic Development projects for cultural facilities and incentives will be based on the County’s policies and procedures and each distribution, through contractual agreements, will be approved by the Board of County Commissioners. 

 

The interlocal agreement has been approved by the School Board and several Municipalities: Atlantis, Belle Glade, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Greenacres, Highland Beach, Jupiter Inlet Colony, Lake Clarke Shores, Lake Worth, Lantana, Loxahatchee Groves, Pahokee, Palm Springs, Royal Palm Beach, South Bay, Wellington, and West Palm Beach. These cities represent 63% of the incorporated population. Other cities are considering the interlocal agreement and will be added as signatory municipalities as they become available.

The project is located on the north side of Northlake Boulevard, east of Grapeview Boulevard and is within the City of Palm Beach Gardens.  The most significant traffic impact areas include the roads south of PGA Boulevard, west of I-95 and along Northlake Boulevard.  Additionally, in  the western area, roads within an area bordered by Northlake Boulevard, Seminole Pratt Whitney Road, Okeechobee Boulevard and (the right-of-way of) State Road 7 (SR7) will be affected. Pursuant to Florida Statutes, Palm Beach County must enter into a binding agreement with the Applicant for the proportionate share of transportation impacts associated with the Project.  The agreement requires the developer to construct Northlake Boulevard (Grapeview Boulevard - SR7 Extension) as a six lane road and the Avenir connector road (Northlake Boulevard – Beeline Highway) as a two lane road prior to moving past the 1000th residential unit. The developer will receive credit for a portion of the construction costs against the total proportionate share amount. District 1 (LB)

B)  authorize staff from Environmental Resources Management, as designated by the Deputy County Administrator, to go to the ships’ site on May 4, 2016 to sign disposition orders transferring title of the ship from U.S. Customs Service to the County;

 

C) find and declare an emergency purchase to approve an $103,750 Contract with Bunnell Foundation, Inc. to provide a “turn-key” service that includes accepting liability of the ship, preparation, towing and scuttling of the ship within a designated permitted County artificial reef site;

 

D)  authorize the County Administrator, or her designee, to approve and sign all future modifications and other forms associated with this contract, and necessary minor amendments that do not substantially change the scope of work, terms or conditions of this Contract;

 

E) adopt Resolution authorizing the Clerk of the Board to disburse $125,000 from the Vessel Registration Fee Trust Fund to cover the project costs, dockage fees and contingencies; and

 

F) approve Budget Transfer of $125,000 from the Environmental Enhancement Saltwater Fund (1224) from Reserves for the M/V Ana Cecilia project.

 

Summary:  Artificial reefs provide habitat for reef organisms, including soft and stony corals and the fishes and invertebrates that live among them.  The U.S. Customs Service offers the ship to the County, if the County will take the ship quickly, making an emergency purchase necessary. The ship, which is accruing daily dockage fees, has to be transferred to the County or sold at auction. Attempts at a competitive process included contacting the only two other locally known vendors capable of such work, who declined interest. The Resolution authorizes the Clerk to transfer $125,000 from the Vessel Registration Fee Trust Fund into the Environmental Enhancement Saltwater Fund to cover the costs for the preparation, towing and scuttling of the ship off Lake Worth Inlet, which will also provide a unique recreational diving and fishing amenity.

Summary:  The subject parcel is located in an area known as Palm Beach Heights (part of the Pal-Mar ecosite).  S&P Capital has offered to sell the undeveloped parcel to the County for $1,850. The property appraisal lists the assessed value as being $330.  However, the Property Appraiser’s valuations do not reflect the prices of recorded sales in the area.  Under the Property & Real Estate Management Ordinance 2002-067, an appraisal is not required since the proposed purchase price is less than $25,000.  The County will pay title insurance, closing and recording costs estimated to be less than $500.  A pre-acquisition environmental assessment will be performed on the property by Environmental Resources Management (ERM).  A boundary survey will not be obtained due to the remote location and low value of the land.  ERM will be responsible for the administration of the property.  All costs related to the acquisition will be paid from the Natural Areas Fund, a non-ad valorem source of funds.  This acquisition must be approved by a supermajority vote (5 Commissioners).
