Legal Review
65. LR1 - Resolution to Participate In and Join the Conflict Resolution Process
Attachment: 1) City of Riviera Board Resolution to join conflict resolution process per Ch 164.pdf
Attachment: 2) Screen printout of unissued water permit due to improvement of sewage system.pdf
Attachment: 3) Undated Permit No. 09-00424 document with handwritten note.pdf

Motions:
I recommend the School Board approve a Resolution, pursuant to Section 164.1052(1), Florida Statutes, to elect to initiate, as a primary conflicting governmental entity, the conflict resolution process with the City of Riviera Beach, Florida, as to the City of Riviera Beach, Florida’s failure to approve, appropriately and fully, a water connection permit, and a sewer connection permit for the Suncoast High School Replacement Project, Project No. 0151-7511. I also recommend that the School Board authorize the Office of the Chief Counsel and all supporting District Staff to abide by all required statutory proceedings, to pursue all options available to resolve the conflict, and to join any party(ies) deemed necessary (none known at this time). Should the conflict not be resolved during the Chapter 164, Florida Statutes, conflict resolution process, I further recommend the School Board approve a Resolution authorizing the office of the Chief Counsel to file suit for equitable and legal relief, and take all appropriate action, including hiring experts, hiring outside counsel, if necessary, and the authority to settle the matter subject to the approval of the Superintendent and School Board, against the City of Riviera Beach, Florida, in the 15th Judicial Circuit in and for Palm Beach County or other appropriate forum, and against any other necessary party(ies) in the appropriate Court. This item was added to the agenda after the first publication because staff advises it is necessary for the Board to consider this action now and: • It is clear from recent communications with the City of Riviera Beach, Florida that it will neither provide the necessary inspections for the water connection permit, nor allow the issuance and subsequent inspection for the sewer connection permit on the Suncoast High School Replacement Project, Project No. 0151-7511. • Final completion on this phase of the Project is January 19, 2010. • The School Board will continue to be exposed to a maximum of $8,570.47 per day unless the School Board moves forward with procedures to ultimately seek relief from the court system. This item was added to the online agenda Tuesday afternoon December 15, 2009, which is sufficient notice under these circumstances.- PASS
