CONTINED FROM MARCH 11, 2014 AND APRIL 15, 2014

Staff recommends motion to adopt: an Ordinance of the Board of County Commissioners of Palm Beach County, Florida, amending Chapter 17, Article I (Ordinance No. 1980-12); Relating to Licenses, Taxation and Miscellaneous Business Regulations, to be known as the “Palm Beach County Motor Vehicle Fuel Price Posting Ordinance”; providing for fuel price signs; providing for repeal of laws in conflict; providing for a savings clause;  providing for severability; providing for inclusion in the code of laws and ordinances; providing for captions; and providing for an effective date. SUMMARY:  On February 4, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners (the “Board”) held a preliminary reading of this Ordinance and authorized advertising for public hearing on March 11, 2014. On March 11, 2014, the Board continued the public hearing until April 15, 2014.  On April 15, 2014, the Board continued the public hearing until April 22, 2014.  The current Motor Vehicle Fuel Price Posting Ordinance requires gasoline stations to prominently and continuously display specific signage indicating the type of motor vehicle fuel available for sale, the minimum price per gallon in numerals at least six inches tall, and the type of service offered for the displayed price, but it does not require the seller to display the maximum price per gallon a consumer will be charged for each type of fuel for sale or require the seller to indicate on the sign whether the displayed price is a “discounted” price for cash sales. Amending the current Ordinance to require gasoline retailers to post the highest price a customer would be required to pay and to prominently indicate on the same sign whether the advertised price is discounted for cash sales, will prevent consumers from being misled at the pump. Staff has met with the industry and the industry has requested a one year time period in order to come into compliance.  Accordingly, the Ordinance has been amended so that the sellers would be allowed up to one year to retrofit signs to meet the requirements.  During the interim, if cash discounts are offered, the sellers shall place a sign at the pump. The League of Cities has no opposition to the proposed Ordinance amendments. Countywide (PGE) (Public Safety)

4.         WORKSHOP – 9:30 A.M. (Palm Tran Connection RFP)

 

A.         Staff recommends motion to approve:  the draft Request For Proposal (RFP) No. 14-041/SC for Palm Tran Connection Paratransit Services, in its substantial form, for the solicitation of three vendors to provide Palm Beach County with paratransit services. SUMMARY:  At the January 28, 2014 and the February 25, 2014 meetings, the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) directed  Staff to prepare a RFP to seek new contractors to replace the current contractor, Metro Mobility Management Group, LLC (MMMG).  The RFP incorporates the following direction by the BCC:

 

1.    County to own all vehicles;

2.    County to perform dispatch services;

3.    Contract with a minimum of three contractors;

4.    Contract for two 40% work packages and one 20% work package;

5.    Establish a minimum 20% Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Goal for each contract;

6.    Establish an all dedicated service model;

7.    Incorporate a seven year contract length;

8.    Incorporate the County’s Living Wage Ordinance;

9.    Separate variable and fixed cost payment structure;

10.  Do not incorporate veteran preference;

11.  Do not incorporate zones for trip distribution; and

12.  Do not decrease the level of service currently provided.

 

Staff anticipates advertising the RFP on May 1, 2014, with receipt of proposals on June 20, 2014.  The proposed schedule has BCC ratification of the Selection Committee recommendations on September 23, 2014, and approval of the three (3) contracts on October 7, 2014.  This schedule will allow for adequate transition for the new vendors to begin service on February 1, 2015, which coincides with MMMG’s termination date of January 31, 2015.  

 

Any changes directed by the BCC will be incorporated into the RFP and will not be brought back to the BCC due to the tight schedule.  Countywide (DR/TKF)
