Body
Fiscal Impact/Net County Cost:
There is no fiscal impact or Net County Cost associated with this item. The committee will analyze various financing mechanisms available to the County and provide the potential fiscal impacts to the Board where appropriate.

Reason for Recommendation:
At the July 29, 2014 Board of Supervisor's meeting the Board received a presentation regarding operational costs and financing options as related to the new Sheriff's Facility. This presentation included financing options and the associated potential effects of each option, along with the potential impact on project delivery timelines and construction costs. After much discussion the Board determined that an overall strategy needed to be in place to address the many facets associated with financing Countywide facility and property improvements, renovations and purchases. Subsequently the Board directed staff to bring back a resolution at the August 5, 2014 Board meeting creating a "Facilities Financing Team Committee" (Committee) to advise the Board on the various available financing mechanisms to the County, along with the impacts associated with each impact. As such, the attached Resolution (Attachment 2A) has been provided for Board consideration in creating the Committee.
