                                    MEMORANDUM
                                           CM11-001


DATE:          October 25, 2010

TO:            Honorable Mayor and City Commission

FROM:          Mark Antonio, City Manager

SUBJECT:       Discussion of Street Furniture Agreement - BP#005/11 & BP#027A/01


PURPOSE:

The City Commission authorize the City Manager to execute an Agreement for the
installation, repair and maintenance of the street furniture (bus benches, bus shelters,
and recycling kiosks benches) throughout the City, and to renew said Agreement in the
best interests of the City.

BACKGROUND:

Per Florida Statute 337.408, Regulation of benches, transit shelters, street light poles,
waste disposal receptacles, and modular news racks (hereinafter referred to as “street
furniture”) within rights-of-way, a City can authorize the installation of street furniture with
advertising on its right-of-ways without formal bid to a qualified supplier.

Currently the City has two separate agreements for bus shelters and benches: one for
the installation and maintenance of bus shelters and one for the installation and
maintenance of bus benches.

On March 24, 2003, the City entered into a Perpetual Bench Agreement with the
Hallandale Beach Area Chamber of Commerce (Chamber of Commerce). This
agreement modified the original Bench Agreement between the City and the Chamber of
Commerce dated November, 1994 (amended October 26, 1999). The Perpetual Bench
Agreement grants the Chamber of Commerce the right to subcontract with a company
for the placement of bus benches with advertising as a revenue source for the Chamber
of Commerce. The Chamber receives all revenue derived from the Agreement.
Benches are placed and removed at the direction of the City.

On June 30, 2003, the City entered into an agreement with Clear Channel Outdoor Inc.
for the installation and maintenance of bus shelters. As part of the Agreement, the City
purchased bus shelter structures, associated light poles and pavers. The City was
additionally responsible to repair and replace light poles and pavers as required, provide
parts replacement parts for shelter repair, and to supply, clean, maintain, and replace
trash receptacles, sod and plant material. Clear Channel received $3,800 per
installation of each shelter, which included Clear Channel installing pavers, light pole,
foundation, fixtures, and electrical connections. Upon the expiration of the contract in
2008, Clear Channel advised that it was not cost effective to continue with the
Agreement as a result of increased cost of installation. Therefore, the City is currently in
a month-to-month contract with Clear Channel and no new shelters have been installed
REGULAR AGENDA - November 3, 2010
Page 5
or replaced; however, the City continues to receive the revenue for the advertising
shelters currently in place until such time when the month-to-month contract is
terminated.

At the July 29, 2010 City Commission Special Budget Meeting, the City Commission
directed staff to begin negotiations with Martin-Gold Coast, LLC (Martin) for a joint bench
and shelter Agreement to include the replacement and installation of bus benches and
bus shelters.

Upon execution of the Agreement with Martin-Gold Coast, the City will give the required
notice of cancellation for the current Agreements in place.

DISCUSSION

Attachment 1 is the draft agreement for Street Furniture. In summation, the Agreement
has a term of ten years with automatic renewals of subsequent 5 year terms subject to
mutual agreement of financial and material terms. It requires Martin to install, maintain
and repair all bus benches and bus shelters throughout the City. Upon execution of the
Agreement, Martin-Gold Coast will assume ownership of currently installed bus shelter
units. As the owner, Martin-Gold Coast is required to maintain, replace, repair, and keep
said shelters in good repair and condition, and is furthermore required to retrofit all bus
shelters with solar lighting. Martin-Gold Coats will purchase City owned bus shelters for all
future installations and replacements of bus shelters, so long as there are bus shelters in
the City’s possession. Martin-Gold Coast will pay the City three thousand two hundred and
fifty dollars ($3,250) per bus shelter unit. Upon the depletion of the in-stock City shelters,
Martin-Gold Coast will purchase shelters and other associated materials as needed for
replacement of shelters at their sole expense. The purchase and installation of bus
benches and recycling kiosks will be borne solely by Martin-Gold Coast.

This new agreement consolidates the Perpetual Bus Bench Agreement and the City’s
Bus Shelter Agreement into one agreement. Said agreement will alleviate the City from
having to maintain, pay installation/repair costs, and provide replacement parts for bus
shelters. Upon approval and execution, said Agreement will terminate the Perpetual
Bench Agreement between the Chamber of Commerce and the City relating to bus
benches, and supersede and replace that certain Agreement between the Chamber of
Commerce and Martin-Gold Coast.

Within one year of execution of this Agreement all benches will be removed and
replaced with updated uniform benches (See Attachment 2) with priority to be given to
the City’s major thoroughfares (Hallandale Beach Boulevard, Federal Highway, and
A1A). The benches on these main thoroughfares will be replaced within 120 days of
execution. Shelters will replace benches where space permits. In the event there is not
sufficient space for the installation, recycling kiosk with accompanying bench will be
placed in locations through the City (see Attachment 3). All benches will be placed
parallel to the street (currently they are at an angle) resulting in an overall improvement
to the City’s appearance.

As directed by the City Commission during the July 29, 2010 Budget Meeting, the
Chamber of Commerce will receive up to $50,000 in revenue generated from the
Agreement in lieu of the City’s annual contribution to the Chamber of Commerce and the
revenue the Chamber of Commerce receives from the Perpetual Bench Agreement. In
REGULAR AGENDA - November 3, 2010
Page 6
exchange, the Chamber of Commerce will work with the City and local businesses to
assist in obtaining easements in locations where there are no bus shelters. Acquiring
these easements will provide for the space capacity to install a bus shelter instead of a
bus bench.


RECOMMENDATION:

The City Commission:

1. Approve the attached Street Furniture Agreement with Martin-Gold-Coast, LLC.

2. Authorize the City Manager to execute all necessary documents.

3. Authorize the City Manager to establish the appropriate accounts as necessary to
   implement the project.

4. Authorize the City Manager to renew in the best interest of the City.

                                      CM11-001

DATE:          October 25, 2010

TO:            Honorable Mayor and City Commission

FROM:          Mark Antonio, City Manger

SUBJECT:       Pursuant to Chapter 23, Section 23-107, Exception to Bid Requirements,
               Hallandale Beach Code of Ordinances, Request Authorization to Enter
               into an Agreement with the Precise Agency Group, LLC, in an Amount
               Not-To-Exceed $48,000. BP#006/11


PURPOSE:

Pursuant to Chapter 23, Section 23-107, Exceptions to Bid Requirements, Hallandale
Beach Code of Ordinances, request authorization to enter into Consulting Agreement
with the Precise Agency Group, LLC, in an Amount Not-To-Exceed $48,000.

BACKGROUND:

Each year as part of the annual budget process the City appropriates funding to
charitable organizations that provide services which impact the City’s residents and/or
businesses. As economic times worsen, there is greater need for such services in the
Community resulting in an increase of amount of requests to the City. Many of these
organizations are grassroots who provide excellent programming and services; however,
they continue to struggle each year to sustain themselves and to be able to provide said
services. This year alone, the City received a little less than $1 million in requests. With
the resources and organizations that the City of Hallandale Beach has in its Community,
the City holds a great interest in their sustainability and capacity building.

DISCUSSION

As part of the developing the capacity building program, the City met with three
agencies. Upon evaluating the three organizations, The Precise Agency Group was the
best match to meet the City’s requirements.

Attachment 1 is the Agreement with The Precise Agency Group for said program. As
set forth in the Scope of Services, this program includes a complete assessment of the
organization, assistance with board governance, bylaw and corporate development,
establishment and/or review of financial records and reporting, grant writing/fund
development, and long term sustainability planning. In addition, four quarterly boost
camps will be held at no charge to the City.

By investing in the sustainability and capacity building of these organizations, the City
will not only be investing in the Community, but additionally will see a reduction in the
dollar amount of the yearly contribution requests.
REGULAR AGENDA - November 3, 2010

   Agreement with the Precise Agency Group, LLC, in an amount not to exceed
   $48,000.

6. Authorize the City Manager to establish the appropriate accounts as necessary to
   implement the project.

PURPOSE

The City Commission consider ratifying the Unsafe Structures Board members which

Appraiser, a Real Estate Property Manager, and a citizen with experience and

and hear all testimony from the Building Official, the owner and other parties in interest.

DISCUSSION

The initial appointments to the Board shall be as follows: Three members for the term of
two years, three members for the term of three years, and three members for the term of
four years. Thereafter, all appointments shall be for the term of three years, provided
that the term in all instances shall continue until a successor is appointed and qualified.
Pursuant to Chapter 2, Article 3, Section 2-71 all Boards created by Ordinance shall be
appointed by a majority vote of the City Commission.

The current Unsafe Structures Board positions are all filled except that of the Electrical

positions that require reappointment, three of which are residents of Hallandale Beach.
Staff has contacted all current members to verify that they are still interested in
participating on our Board and they have agreed to continue serving on the Board.

                                   MEMORANDUM


DATE:          October 26, 2010

TO:            Mark Antonio, City Manager

FROM:          John Chidsey, Director of Public Works

SUBJECT:       A Resolution of the City of Hallandale Beach, Florida Authorizing an
               Application for Financial Assistance with the Florida Coastal Management
               Program (FCMP) Grant Application Coastal Partnership Initiative 2011-
               2012. CAD#005/09


PURPOSE

The City Commission approves a resolution authorizing an application for financial
assistance with the Florida Coastal Management Grant Program through the Coastal
Partnership Initiative for the renovation of South Beach Park in the amount of $60,000
and authorizing a $60,000 grant match, for a total grant amount of $120,000.

BACKGROUND

The City submitted an application for the renovation of South Beach Park during the
2010-2011 grant cycle. The application was ranked fourth out of seven applications in
the Access to Coastal Resources category; however, due to a lack of funding at the
state level, only the first two ranked applications were funded.

The South Beach Park facility is the southern component of the City’s beach park. This
facility needs improvements to better support the current demands by the residents. The
City has drawn up the attached plan to renovate the South Beach Park and is seeking
financial assistance to supplement currently budgeted City funds to implement this
project.

The City has prepared the attached application which will be submitted by the November
10th, 2010 deadline date, contingent upon City Commission approval. The funding is
made available by the Florida Coastal Management Program (FCMP) through the
Coastal Partnership Initiative. This partnership seeks to promote the effective
management of Florida’s coastal resources.       If awarded, the grant funds will be
available after July 1st, 2011.

DISCUSSION

The grant application will be submitted under the Access to Coastal Resources category.
This category covers activities that will enhance public access to the beach.            The
construction of this project will include restoration of the main pavilion; construction of a
new pavilion to provide additional public space and landscaping. These improvements
have been considered and discussed with the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, the
City’s Beautification Board, the City’s Master Plan team and the community.
REGULAR AGENDA - November 3, 2010
Page 12
The cost for this project is estimated at $120,000, of which the City would pay 50% or
$60,000. If approved by the City Commission, funding for the City’s match is available
under Capital Improvement Project #: 08-63-02, Park Improvements, General Fund,
Account #: 001-8090-519-3491.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Commission:

   1) Adopt a resolution authorizing an application for financial assistance with the
      Florida Coastal Management Grant Program through the Coastal Partnership
      Initiative for the renovation of South Beach Park in the amount of $60,000.00,
      including a $60,00 grant match; and,

   2) Authorize the City Manager to execute the funding agreement and implement the
      project including the establishment of appropriate accounts.

                                  MEMORANDUM


DATE:         October 19, 2010

TO:           Mark Antonio, City Manager

FROM:         James Buschman, City Clerk

SUBJECT:      A Resolution of the City of Hallandale Beach, Florida, Opposing the
              Imposition of Additional Charges by the Broward County Supervisor of
              Elections to Municipalities Holding November Elections. CAD#008/10


PURPOSE:

The City Commission adopt the attached Resolution opposing the imposition of
additional charges by the Broward County Supervisor of Elections (SOE) to
Municipalities Holding November Elections and authorize its transmittal to the
appropriate agencies.

BACKGROUND:

Historically, the SOE has either not charged municipalities for placing items on the
November ballot, or has charged a nominal fee for ballot set-up to add the municipal
items. The Broward County SOE has recently notified the 18 municipalities in Broward
County that have items on the November ballot that they will need to pay an amount
equal to 15% of the applicable cost of the November election, resulting in a total bill to
the 18 municipalities of Two Hundred Twenty-Seven Thousand Four Hundred Ninety-
Two ($227,492) Dollars, of which Five Thousand Nine Hundred Twenty-Eight ($5,928)
will be charged to the City of Hallandale Beach. (See Attachment 1, Cost Analysis of
Charging Municipalities.)

DISCUSSION

The SOE failed to provide a schedule of fees, including these new charges to the City of
Hallandale Beach and other Broward municipalities, prior to the first work day in April of
the prior calendar year (2009) as required by Section 9 of Chapter 75 – 350.
Furthermore, the addition of election items by municipalities on the November ballot
does not result in material additional cost to the SOE and provides a cost savings to
municipalities by avoiding the cost of a stand - alone election. Furthermore, this is an
unfunded mandate by the County and unfair as the citizens of Hallandale Beach already
pay taxes to the County which should cover this expense.

It should be noted, several of the surrounding municipalities holding November Elections
have already adopted similar Resolutions in opposition of these charges.
REGULAR AGENDA - November 3, 2010
Page 14
RECOMMENDATION:

The City Commission adopt the attached Resolution and authorize staff to transmit to
the Broward County Supervisor of Elections, the Broward League of Cities, and all
municipalities in Broward County.
