COMMISSION MEMORANDUM

TO:Honorable Mayor and Members of the City Commission 
FROM:Commissioner John Elizabeth Aleman 
DATE:June  5, 2019
 



SUBJECT:REFERRAL TO THE JUNE 28, 2019 FINANCE AND CITYWIDE PROJECTS COMMITTEE TO DISCUSS THE INITIAL FUNDING FOR UNDERGROUNDING OF UTILITIES IN THE CITY OF MIAMI BEACH.

ANALYSIS

Please place on the June 5, 2019 City Commission Agenda, a referral to the June 2019 Finance and Citywide Projects Committee (FCWPC) to consider setting aside $100,000 in a fund to pay for the initial FP&L estimates for neighborhood undergrounding projects in our City.

The pool of funding for neighborhood undergrounding requests could be set up with specific ground rules such as:

 

  1. All City expenses are reimbursed by a Homeowners Association (HOA) if undergrounding moves forward.
  2. The pool can only be tapped into once by an HOA. Subsequent estimates would be the responsibility of the HOA.
  3. Funds would be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

 

Additional information from the January 2019 Neighborhood/Community Affairs Committee meeting can be found attached.

 

Please contact my office at extension 26437 with any questions.
