Action Requested
Authorization for County Administrator to execute Amendment One to Reimbursement Agreement for Capital Improvements with South Florida Museum.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Code of Laws 2-29-25  Tourist Development Plan

F.S.S. 125.0104  Authorized uses of Resort Tax Funds

Background Discussion
  • On August 25, 2015, the BCC approved an agreement with the South Florida Museum to reimburse 50% of the actual and direct costs incurred by the Museum (up to $200,000 per year for 5 years) for capital improvements to the Museum's Facility.
  • To fulfill the original agreement we are requesting to add language to Exhibit A in order to reimburse the Museum for  50% of the costs incurred to review the Museum's branding by a third party contractor or higher education institution.  The original agreement requires the Museum to review their brand; however, we neglected to include that as a reimbursable cost on Exhibit A.  We have now added this language to Exhibit A.
  • This change does not affect the original reimbursable amount being paid to the South Florida Museum - up to $200,000 per year for up to 5 years.
  • All funds involved are tourism taxes, not ad valorem taxes.
