Action Requested
Adopt Resolution R-14-176 for an Interfund Loan from the General Fund (001) to the Beach Erosion Control Fund (122) for further transfer to the Beach Erosion Control Capital Projects Fund (312) in an amount not to exceed $2,530,000.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Section 163.1 of the Florida Statutes.

Background Discussion

Repair of three erosion control groins at Cortez Beach is required to maintain Gulf Drive and to prevent road damage during a storm event.  Erosion control structures are eligible expenses for the dedicated Beach Tourist Development Tax.

Advancement of funds is necessary for costs related to the removal and replacement of erosion control groins at Cortez Beach.  The lowest bid received for the project was $4,412,415. 

In 2013, an interfund loan was done for $7,387,950 for four Beach Renourishment projects, and one of the funded projects of that loan was for Cortez Groins. 

At the current time, the 2013 interfund loan for the Groins totals $1,883,530, and an additional General Fund loan is needed for $2,530,000 to begin construction of the Erosion Control Groins at Cortez Beach project.

The interfund loan will be replaced with a loan from an outside source.

Repayment of loan will be started in FY15 from Beach Renourishment one cent tourist tax.
