C)     A RESOLUTION OF MIAMI SHORES VILLAGE ACCEPTING CONVEYANCE OF PROPERTY INTEREST FOR ROAD PURPOSES FROM MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA.

 

Ms. Estep indicated that the County had requested an amended resolution which conformed to their established format.  Therefore, the Village’s original resolution, number 1193-10, was revised to meet the County’s standard.  The purpose of the resolution remained the same which was to accept the transfer of responsibility and ownership of N.E. 107th Street, east of N.E. 6th Avenue.  Mr. Loffredo reiterated that the amended resolution duplicates the action which was already taken by the Council during the December, 2010 Council Meeting.  Mr. Loffredo then moved to adopt the amended resolution as most recently submitted.  Mrs. Holly seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous in favor of the motion.

Mr. Benton provided the Council with information regarding the request to purchase one police vehicle to replace a wrecked patrol car, as well as to purchase two K-9 vehicles at this time, rather than wait until the new fiscal year when the Ford Crown Victoria vehicles will no longer be available for purchase.  Mr. Benton clarified that the purchase of two K-9 vehicles are included in the FY11-12 Capital Improvement Program and would have been requested during the upcoming budget process.  Mr. Benton further indicated that approximately $22,000 in insurance proceeds from the vehicle accident offsets a portion of the vehicle costs.  Mr. Loffredo then moved to adopt the resolution which approves the vehicle purchase as well as the corresponding budget amendment #1 to the FY2010-2011 operating budget.   Mr. Herrera seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous in favor of the motion.
