EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Recommendation to direct the County Attorney to advertise, and bring back for public hearing, an Ordinance amending Ordinance No. 2018-21, in order to codify the Board’s appointment of alternate members of the Infrastructure Surtax Citizen Oversight Committee.

 

 

OBJECTIVE:  To conform Ordinance No. 2018-21 to the Board’s appointment of alternate members to the Infrastructure Surtax Citizen Oversight Committee.

 

CONSIDERATIONS:  On April 24, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance No. 2018-21, which authorized a one percent local government infrastructure surtax.  The Ordinance also created the Infrastructure Surtax Citizen Oversight Committee, to be composed of seven members.

 

On January 8, 2019, under agenda item 12A, the Board appointed the initial Committee membership.  Based on the large number of highly qualified candidates, the Board added two alternate members to the Committee, which has functioned admirably.  

 

The proposed ordinance amendment is intended to formalize the addition of the two alternates to the Committee as well as clarifying their terms of membership and voting status.  The timing of the amendment is based on my expectation that I will be coming to the Board in or around December with recommendations of appointments to this Committee to fill vacant positions, which are currently being advertised.   Until then, there was no pressing need to amend the ordinance.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:  The estimated cost to advertise the proposed amendment is $500.00.

 

GROWTH MANAGEMENT IMPACT:   None.

 

LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS:   This item has been reviewed by the County Attorney, is approved as to form and legality, and requires majority support for approval.  -JAK

 

RECOMMENDATION:  To direct the County Attorney to advertise and bring back for public hearing an Ordinance amending Ordinance No. 2018-21, in order to codify the Board’s appointment of alternate members to the Infrastructure Surtax Citizen Oversight Committee.
