Staff Summary: Background The Miami Dade Housing Choice Voucher Self‐Sufficiency Program (FSS) has approached the City with a request to use a facility to host a job fair for its program participants. The FSS program is a voluntary program designed to help families achieve economic independence over a five‐year period. The program coordinating committee anticipates 250 participants and as many as 25 different employers. ITEM K-6) CONSENT AGENDA RESOLUTION Using the Betty T. Ferguson Complex to host a Job Fair 1515 NW 167 Street, Building 5 Suite 200 Miami Gardens, Florida 33169 Current Situation: The FSS program seeks to host the job fair at the Betty T. Ferguson Community Center because of its capacity and easy access to public transportation. The job fair is to be held on Tuesday, March 19, 2010 (specific time details to follow). Approximately 25 employers will be present and will set up booths in order to conduct interviews for potential employment for FSS program participants. The proposed space at the Community Center to host this event is the auditorium. The normal rental fee for the use of the auditorium is $720 ($90 per hour x 8 hours [estimated]). The Community Center schedule has been verified and is available on this date. Councilman Oliver G. Gilbert has requested that the City Council waive the fee rental for the Community Center. Proposed Action: Councilman Gilbert recommends that the City Council approve the use of the Betty T. Ferguson Community Center auditorium to host a job fair for FSS Program participants on Tuesday, March 19, 2011, and to waive the normal rental fees for the use of this space. Attachment: None
