Monthly update from the Administration regarding the Loblolly Mitigation report.”

 

Council Auditor Kirk Sherman to discuss Reports:

#790: DAVID Compliance Audit – Neighborhoods

#791: DAVID Compliance Audit – Clerk of Courts

 

Special Committee Topics of discussion: Office of Economic Development: Response to National report on online transparency of incentives programs and Update on Enterprise Florida

 

 

NOTE:  The next regular meeting will be held Wednesday, April 19th, 2017.

Ali Korman Shelton of the Mayor’s office reported that City attorneys had a very productive meeting with representatives of the Loblolly Wetlands Mitigation Bank management company and there are hopes that the matter can be settled outside of a lawsuit. Another meeting between the parties will be scheduled shortly.

 

Council Auditor Kirk Sherman gave brief overviews of the two audits released since the committee’s last meeting: #790 – DAVID Compliance Audit – Neighborhoods Department and #791 - DAVID Compliance Audit – Clerk of the Courts. DAVID (Driver and Vehicle Information Database) is the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles’ driver’s license database, which City departments access via a Memorandum of Understanding with the DHSMV for purposes of verifying individuals’ identities and taking code enforcement action against vehicle owners for Ordinance Code violations. The MOU contains requirements for City internal control over access to and authorized use of the DAVID database and this year the City was selected to provide an attestation of compliance with that MOU. The Auditor’s Office conducted a performance audit in lieu of an unsupported attestation. One employee in the Neighborhoods Department has access to the DAVID system and no issues were identified there. Ten employees in the Clerk of the Courts Office have access to DAVID and the audit revealed that one employee was making unauthorized use of the system to access information on family members. Disciplinary action has been taken against that employee. An opportunity for improvement finding recommended that both auditees begin filing the required quarterly reports to the state pursuant to the MOU, which both agreed to do.

Bill Summary    Fact Sheet        NCIS: Amend/App

 

In response to a question from Council Member Gulliford, Chairman Dennis explained his desire to create a mechanism to capture the revenue the City will realize from payments received from the bond issuer for use in the vicinity of the project as a form of mitigation of neighborhood impacts. He will propose separate legislation to create such a mechanism and will hold a town hall meeting on this project next week. Finance Director Mike Weinstein cautioned the committee that the proposal to segregate revenues into district-specific accounts represented a very substantial policy change and urged caution in creating such a precedent, which could be detrimental to the overall budgeting process. He said that the administration had serious reservations about the project to begin with and only agreed to propose it to the Council after the developer agreed to at least make the City whole for a portion of the tax revenue that will be lost when the for-profit developer sells the project to a not-for-profit corporation, taking the property off the tax rolls. Council Member Gulliford opposed doing the transaction without the deal being funneled through the Jacksonville Housing Finance Authority’s review process. He is developing legislation that will require all housing finance bond deals, regardless of the issuer, to be taken through the JHFA review process.

 

Christopher Walker representing Investing in America’s Veterans Foundation explained the deadline of having the TEFRA hearing by May 1st or the seller will cancel the deal. Ralph Sentillo of IAVF described  the programming his organization provides to military veterans and reported that the South Florida-based organization will create a local LLC corporation to manage the project in Jacksonville. Council Member Bowman noted that, although it is the express intent of the IAVF to house a large percentage of veterans in the complex, there is no such requirement in the documents. He will draft an amendment to include a written commitment to housing veterans in the complex in the deal documents.
