BS&A Inventory Management & Work Oder Management
Margaret Blank explained, "When we purchased City Works they were the best of the three

accounting software out of Michigan, a year ago and their assessment management software is
newer than that. So unfortunately the BS&A option did not exists back then but now it does."

Re: Unique Commercial Properties Item #15 August 20,2013 agenda
Dear Commissioners:
Irepresent the Florida Keys Elks Lodge located at 92600 Overseas Highway. We area zoned as a private
club but may qualifyunder your guidelines as a commercial property. There was no vacuum system
installed in our area therefore we are required to connect directly to the forced main at a substantial
cost. For two years we have beencommunicating with the district onthis issue and patiently waiting for
an equitable solution. Ioutlined our argument in amemo to then Commissioner Charles Brooks onApril
21,2011.1 then spoke with several of you personally about this matter. In June of 20111 received a call
from Craig Matthews telling us to do nothing and that the District was going to recommend thatthe
District purchase and install a lift station for our property. On June 21,20111 once again spoke with
Craig Matthews who advised methat the Board ofCommissioners had directed staff to assist those
customers who were under6 EDU's. Once again we were told to hold on and do nothing until staff
presented a solution.
Atthe March 20,2012Commission meeting your staff presented to you a recommendation
(attached as" A"), to furnish and install grinder pumps for anumber of properties including ours. Ispoke
atthat same meeting and the item was deferred because atthetime you were in the process of hiring
an attorney for the District.
In August Of 2013 Icalled the District to find outthe status ofthis issue and was referred to Kim
Ackles. Ms. Ackles advised me she had no information or knowledge of this issue so I provided herall
the relative information and documents and was told that shewould research the issue and let me know
what the status was.
In January of2013, after hearing nothing Icalled the District and learned that Ms. Ackles was no
longer employed. Irequested ameeting with Margret Blank but was referred toSusan Rubio who
apologized but stated she had no knowledge ofthe issue. Once again Iprovided information and
documents so that staff could research the issue.
In April of20131 had occasion to see Ms. Blank at an unrelated meeting. In the conversation
that ensued itwas clear to methatthe district was leaning toward NOT helping us in any way. Ms. Blank
advised meto seek another bid onthe connection as costs have come way down. Following thatadvice I
did seek another bid from acompany that provided one in 2011. The new bid was actually slightly higher
than the 2011 bid.
Ihave spoken to numerous commercial property owners who have had to connect tothe
vacuum system installed by the District and their costs were only afraction ofthe cost associate what
we are facing.
Recently we learned that the district made adecision to furnish and install and maintain grinder
pumps for 140 homes in the area ofthe 905. This situation is nearly identical to ours. It is an area that
you did not install avacuum system and therefore the homeowners were going to have toconnect to
the forced main atasubstantially higher cost. You stepped in and provided them relief in the form
outlined above and assessed them a nominal fee.
As you can imagine we are frustrated at being told to wait, at the manner and pace at which this issue
has slowly moved forward and terribly disappointed in the recommendation that will be made to you at
the August 20, 2013 meeting as agenda item #15.
As I look at the summary explanation/background presented by staff there are four points
made. None of these deal with fairness or equitable treatment which should be the benchmark for
decision making. Instead they deal with fear of unpredictable costs and state that the problem is
compounded for commercial properties without any empirical data to support that position.
Additionally I believe there are other options such as a direct credit to the property owner which would
preclude the need of the District to come on to private propertyat all. Fearthat some owner in the
future may improve their property causingthe need for upgrades. Such an issue can be resolved
through an agreement upfront between the district and the propertyowner where it is clearthat any
future upgrades will be the sole responsibility of the property owner. Lastly I'm not sure whom the staff
is referring to in item number four. We are customersin Key Largo and we already are paying higher
costs than other unincorporated areas and are facing costs way above many other customers in this
same category. By denying us the same type of assistance provided throughout the District it clearly will
save the District some money but at who's expense and then you have to askyourself, "isthat fair and
equitable?"
Commissioners we askthat you consider this issue and indoing so put yourself in our position. If
you were a commercial property owner that was unlucky enough to be located where we areand were
facing a connection cost way in excess of an identical property located where there is a vacuum system,
How would you feel? We simply ask you for some equitable support from ourDistrict. All options should
be on the table.

Memo
To:
KLWTD Board Members
From: Rebecca Orozcoand Richard Crow
CC:
Margaret Blank,PE
Date:
March 14,2012
Re:
Commercial Unique Property Project Updates
KLWTD staff has prepared this memo to provide the status of the Commercial Unique Property project
to the board members. Below Is asummary ofthe proposed project and staffrecommendations.
The Commercial Unique Property Project was created for KWLTD to address potential inequities in
serving very small businesses provided with aforce main connection -commercial parcels with asingle
building and tow water consumption. All commercial properties that have a force main connection
require aduplex pump system, and an FDEP Permit that has to be prepared by an engineer to tie into
our wastewater system. These requirements add substantially to the expense of tying into the system
as opposed to asimple gravity connection to the vacuum system, which would require only abuilding
permit
The district recognized the possibility that some small businesses were disproportionately impacted by
these requirements. OveraH, the vacuum system was the most cost effective way for the district to
collect and transport wastewater but the vacuum system has limits on its effective range, and is not
economically feasible in some situations. In these situations, the District provided a force main
connection. The additional requirements present wastewater service connection issues for unique small
commercial properties.
THE PROPOSED SEWER PROJECT FOR COMMERCIAL UNIQUE PROPERTIES
The proposed sewer project wiH include provision and installation ofthe following components:
Duplex Grinder Pump Systems. The District will excavate and install a wet weil adjacent to each
commercial building, near the wastewater pipe where it comes out of the building. The District will
install agrinder pump system in the wet weB, and connect the building's electrical wiring to the grinder
pump Note, ifelectrical service is not available the property owner is responsible to provide the 220-
volt electrical service to the exterior of the building adjacent to the wet well and the electrical work
should be performed bya licensed electrician.
Low-Pressure Lateral Pipes. The District will install a low-pressure lateral pipe on the property,
connecting the grinder pump to the collection system installed by the District in the public right-of*ay.
The lateral pipe is asmall-diameter Hne that will require minimal excavation. Normally, we will install
the lateral pipe along the shortest Hne between the grinder pump and the collection system. However,
the District will route the line around existing structures and trees, ifnecessary.
PRELIMINARY COMMERCIAL UNIQUE LIST
Staff has located atotal of fifteen commercial properties that qualifies to beBste^
Appendix A. Please note this list is preliminary and staff Is currently investigating the properties listed on
Appendix A. See the attached maps for locations ofcommercial unique properties.
PROPJECTCOST
Staff has also created acost analysis forthis project The District has two option and the options are:
1. FURNISHANDINSTALL6WNDERPUMPATBUILDINGL0CATI0N
Total ProjectCost of$433,843 with Average Cost Per Connection at $28,923
2. FURNISHANDINSTAaeR»»DERPUMPONPROPERlYNEXrTOR.O.W.
Total ProjectCost of$320,850 with Average Cost PerConnection at $21390
(please note the list is notfinalized)
STAFFRECOMMENDATION
For those properties that classify as a Unique Commercial Property, staff recommends providing,
installing and maintaining aduplex grinder pump station for the property owner. Out ofthe two options
analyzed staff is recommending Option 1in providing wastewater service to the 15 commercial unique
properties at the building location, listed in Appendix Aunder Option 1. Option 1was chosen over
Option 2because instalBng the pump station near the right-of-way may still require the property owner
to Install a pump station to reach the connection point The total estimated project cost will be
$433,843 or $28,923 per property. The property owner is responsible monthly electrical costto operate
the pumps.
Staff isstill working out anequitable assessment strategy.

August 5, 2013
Subject: Wire Transfers at BB&T Bank for payment of SRF loans
Current Procedure:
Four times per year, wire transfers are required for the electronic payments for KLWTD's State
Revolving Fund (SRF) loans. These payments are made from our debt service account at BB&T Bank.
A week prior to the due date, a form is completed by the Senior Finance Manager (see attached) and
the signatures are obtained from the General Manager and Chairman of the Board of Commissioners
ofKLWTD.
Since our current policy does not allow online wire transfers or wire by phone, our General Manager
must drive to the BB&T branch at MM90 and wait approximately one hour for the bank representative
to process the multiple, separate wire transfers. If the General Manager is unavailable to physically
drive down to the bank for any reason, it is possible that the District could fail to make a timely
payment.
Recommended Change in Procedure:
BB&T Bank has two options for wire payments without the need to go to the bank:
1. Online Wire Transfer: through BB&T'ssecure Cash Manager Online software. The District currently
uses BB&T's Cash Manager Online software to transfer funds within BB&T accounts, make deposits,
and many other banking tasks. Security measures include a token and specific log-in passwords.
However, they do not include the "Call Back Verification" option, (see below)
2. Corporate Call Wire Transfer: Wire transfers are initiated by KLWTD with a phone call to BB&T
Treasury Management Department and are confirmed with the "Call Back Verification option,
where BB&T representative contacts the Chairman of the Board of Commissioner (or another
commissioner if chairman is unavailable) by phone to confirm authorization of the wire transfer.
The Commissioner will be given authorization with a specific PIN number that he/she will provide to
BB&T to confirm approval of the wire transfer.
Discussion and Possible Action:
The Finance Department, along with the General Manager, would like to recommend that the District
establish a policy that would allow wire transfers by phone with the Corporate Call Wire Transfer
(option #2 above) for the SRF loan payments and other loan payments. At present, the ability for the
District to make timely loan payments depends on the physical presence of the General Manager.
Allowing Call Wire Transfers for the purposes of making regular loan payments ensures timely loan
payments, while preserving needed security.
BB&T
Corporate Call Wire Transfer Service
BB&T Payment Solutions
BB&T'S WIRE TRANSFER services eliminate the need to visit
a local branch office each time you need to initiate a wire transfer.
We have two options to allow you to make secure, convenient
wire transfers right from your office.
BB&T OFFERS TWO TYPES OF WIRE TRANSFERS:
• Repetitive Wire Transfer - For wire transfers being sent tothesame party on an ongoing basis. Create wire transfer instruc
tions one time and access this template eachtimeyou need to wire funds to that business partner. The only information that
needs to be changed is the amount and the date.
• Non-Repetitive Wire Transfer - Wire transfers for which you provide all of the beneficiary information each time you initiate
a wire transfer.
CORPORATE CALL WIRETRANSFER
• BB&T's Corporate Call Wire Transfer service allows you to call our toll-free number and initiate both repetitive and
non-repetitive wire transfers
• Each company representative is assigned a Personal Identification Number used to initiate thewire transfer
• Initiate both domestic and international wires (USD) until 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time each business day for same-day processing
• BB&T sends an acknowledgement by your preferred method following both incoming and outgoing wire transfers
• WireTransfer initiation dollar limit can be established for each company representative
• Call back option to a second company representative is available for all non repetitive wire transfers

Standard Security Protocol for BB&T CashManager OnLine®
Criminal attempts toaccessbank accounts and steal from businesses are becoming more sophisticated in today's online environment. Malicious attempts to
steal cash and/or steal information that can beconverted tocash are increasingly common. In addition todirect financial loss, your business could also suffer lost
productivity, legal costs and reputational loss. As a result, anyuser access and activity can expose your business to fraud. It is therefore critical that all employees
entitled toaccess CashManager OnLine utilize all standard security features.
Liability
As a user ofCashManager OnLine, you have anobligation tosafeguard your credentials and account information from physical orelectronic theft, including theft
via malware on any/all computers used toconduct business via CashManager OnLine. Under theterms ofyour company's agreement with BB&T, BB&T is authorized
to process payments upon receipt ofyour CashManager OnLine credentials. Furthermore, losses are not covered under Regulation E. Your company therefore is liable
for any loss ofinformation orfunds due to payments originated with stolen credentials. BB&T closely monitors its systems to ensure only valid credentials are used
toinitiate funds transfers. Failure tosafeguard your credentials physically orelectronically can result infraudulent accessto your CashManager OnLine account,
unauthorized funds transfers and financial loss toyour company. It iscritical to protect your credentials and computer systems by following Standard Security
Protocol.
BB&T provides the following standard CashManager OnLine security features:
• Logon Credentials. Company System Administrators ("CSAs") are provided logon credentials. CSAs then create credentials for company users. ATemporary
Password is created for each user who is subsequently prompted tochange it at initial log in. Passwords expire every 30 days - new passwords should contain
a mix ofupper and lower case letters and numbers, contain no special characters, and beat leasteight characters in length.
• Security Token. BB&T provides CSAs with security tokens for distribution toall company CashManager OnLine users. Asecurity token is a small, connectionless
device that generates a one-time passcode to useat log in. Once activated, every time a user logs in toCashManager OnLine, the token code allows BB&T to
authenticate each user and allows them to validate that userto authenticate that they are logging in to a legitimate BB&T CashManager OnLine session every
time. Additionally, company users that have Release authority for Account Transfers, Wire Transfers orACH Transactions must further authenticate those
transactions byperforming the security token passcode process each time those transactions are submitted for release.
• Trusteer Rapport. Trusteer Rapport software protects your company's financial assets and business data during every CashManager OnLine banking session.
BB&T will automatically prompt all company users todownload Rapport via an in-browser message and hyperlink. Users should consult their IT orsystem
administrator as necessary. Failure to download Rapport onany/all devices used for CashManager OnLine will result in discontinued accessaftera period of
45 days from initial user prompt.
• Dual Approval for Payments. Dual Approval for Payments requires one user toinitiate a payment and a second user, with a second set ofcredentials and using
a secondcomputer, to approve the release of the payment.
• User Entitlements. Users should beentitled toonly those functions and accounts necessary to perform their normal activities. These entitlements should be
reviewed regularly.
• Payment Limits. Amaximum wire transfer payment limit is assigned by BB&T based onyour company's needs. This limit, along with otherpayment limits you
have established for your company and individual users, should be routinely reviewed.
• Event Notification Service. Event notification allows users to receive messages via their selected delivery method when account payment activity occurs and
when changes are madeto a user's entitlements or profile. Notifications of unexpected activity enable action to be taken more quickly. Certain notifications
- Administrative Alerts - are automatic toalert thecompany administrator(s) and/or affected user(s) ofpotentially suspicious activity. These include: new user
set up, user modified or deleted, modifications to a user's security privileges, changeina user's email address, change in a user's Mobile data orCarrier's Text
Delivery, password changes, changes to a user's service entitlements, account list orscreen settings. (Note: "User" in these descriptions alsoincludes

Highly Recommended Security Measures and Sound Business Practices
• Dual Approval forAdministrative Changes. Dual Approval for Administrative Changes provides you with added security by requiring that a second "Administrator
ofRecord" (anadditional CSA registered with BB&T vs. a user entitled tosecurity privileges) approve all user profile, entitlement, setting, and account changes.
These multiple Administrators of Record are maintained by BB&T and must have identical entitlements, settings, and accounts. This added security impedes
fraudster attempts togain administrative control. To establish Dual Approval for Administrative Changes, please contact BB&T Treasury Management Client
Support at 800-774-8179.
• Activity Limits and User Entitlements. Implement limits onactivities, payments, and active session thresholds by user and company.
• Review Accounts Daily. Notify BB&T immediately of unusual activity.
• Employ Positive Pay and ACH Debit Block. These features arewidely recognized best practices for preventing unauthorized paper and electronic payments.
• Use a Stand-alone Computer. Designate onecomputerexclusively foronline banking. Limit Internet access and prohibit email to minimize exposure to malware.
• Exercise Sound Password Management. Prohibit the sharing of passwords, require strong passwords with a mix ofcharacters and cases, use a different password
for eachwebsite accessed, and regularly changepasswords. Do not store passwords onyour computer incase it is compromised.
• User Education. Aware and alertCashManager OnLine usersare an effective defense against payments fraud. Establish an online fraud awareness program and
conduct regular training sessions. Conduct periodic riskassessments. Train all employees to recognize and prevent online fraud. BB&T regularly provides fraud
prevention webinars for CashManager OnLine users, administrators, and company executives. Contact BB&T Treasury Management Client Support at 800-774-8179
toregister. For current security information, please visit BBT.com/security.
• Remain Alert. BB&T will never ask foryour login credentials, including requests to respond to or click on a link within an Event Notification message.
• Report Immediately. Ifyou experience fraud, stop, quarantine your computer, and immediately contact BB&T Treasury Management Client Support at 800-774-8179.
• Insurance. Cyber theft occurring with the use ofvalid credentialsis not covered by the bank. Discuss cyber theft with your insurance provider.
Understanding the Threat
The goal of online thieves is totrick you into providing your password, user ID, andtoken code(s) sothey canaccess your CashManager OnLine account and steal
money. To obtain your credentials, a thief may send you an email purportedly from a trusted source such as a government agency, business, orbank. The email may
ask for your credentials directly oraskyou toclick on a link that secretly downloads malicious software toyour computer. Malware may even be loaded on your
computer by visiting seemingly innocent websites orthrough fake security updates. It is important to protect your computer as the malware canactivate when you
attempt tovisit your online banking website and hijack your session, log your key strokes, orinsert fake login pages into your browser. The malware can transmit your
credentials to the thief for illicit use.The latest threats may not be detected by anti-virus software.
If you areconcerned about theauthenticity of a communication orexperience unusual system behavior such as failed log ins, timeout, pop-ups, requests todownload
software (aside from Trusteer Rapport), maintenance screens, orfailure toadvance to thenext screen, this may bea sign offraudulent activity. Stop and immediately
contact BB&T Treasury Management Client Support at 800-774-8179.

Board of Commissioners
Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District, Florida
P.O. Box 491
Key Largo, FL 33037
We are pleased to confirm our understanding of the services we are to provide the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment
District, Key Largo, Florida ("the District") for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. We will audit the financial
statements of the business-type activities and major fund, including related notes to the financial statements, which
collectively comprise the basic financial statements of the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District as of and for the
fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. This letter serves to renew our agreement and establish the terms and fees for
the 2013 audit.
Accounting standards generally accepted in the United States of America provide for certain required supplementary
information (RSI), such as management's discussion and analysis (MD&A), to supplement the District's basic financial
statements. Such information, although not a part of the basic financial statements, is required by the Governmental
Accounting Standards Board who considers it to be an essential part of financial reporting for placing the basic financial
statements in an appropriate operational, economic, or historical context. As part of our engagement, we will apply
certain limited procedures to the District's RSI in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United
States of America. These limited procedures will consist of inquiries of management regarding the methods of preparing
the information and comparing the information for consistency with management's responses to our inquiries, the basic
financial statements, and other knowledge we obtained during our audit of the basic financial statements. We will not
express an opinion or provide any assurance on the information because the limited procedures do not provide us with
sufficient evidence to express an opinion or provide any assurance. The following RSI is required by generally accepted
accounting principles and will be subjected to certain limited procedures, but will not be audited:
1) Management's Discussion and Analysis.
We have also been engaged to report on supplementary information that will be included in the Comprehensive Annual
Financial Report (CAFR) other than RSI that accompanies the District's financial statements. We will subject the
following supplementary information to the auditing procedures applied in our audit of the financial statements and
certain additional procedures, including comparing and reconciling such information directly to the underlying
accounting and other records used to prepare the financial statements or to the financial statements themselves, and
other additional procedures in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America
and will provide an opinion on it in relation to the financial statements as a whole:
1.
Schedule of expenditures of federal awards, if applicable
2.
Schedule of funding progress - Other Post Employment Benefit Plan
The following other information accompanying the financial statements that will be included in the Comprehensive
Annual Financial Report (CAFR) will not be subjected to the auditing procedures applied in our audit of the financial
statements, and our auditor's report will not provide an opinion or any assurance on that information:
1.
Introduction section
2.
Statistical section
3.

Audit Objectives
The objective of our audit is the expression of opinions as to whether your basic financial statements are fairly
presented, in all material respects, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and to report on the
fairness of the supplementary information referred to in the second paragraph when considered in relation to the
financial statements as a whole. The objective also includes reporting on—
•
Internal control related to the financial statements and compliance with the provisions of laws, regulations,
contracts, and grant agreements, noncompliance with which could have a material effect on the financial
statements as required by Government Auditing Standards.
•
Internal control related to major programs and an opinion (or disclaimer of opinion) on compliance with laws,
regulations, and the provisions of contracts or grant agreements that could have a direct and material effect on
each major program in accordance with the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996 and OMB Circular A-133,
Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations, if applicable.
The reports on internal control and compliance will each include a paragraph that states that the purpose of the report is
solely to describe (1) the scope of testing of internal control over financial reporting and compliance and the result of
that testing and not to provide an opinion on the effectiveness of intemal control over financial reporting or on
compliance, (2) the scope of testing internal control over compliance but not to provide an opinion on the effectiveness
of intemal control over compliance, and (3) that the report is an integral part of an audit performed in accordance with
Government Auditing Standards in considering internal control over financial reporting and compliance and OMB
Circular A-133 in considering intemal control over compliance and major program compliance. The paragraph will also
state that the report is not suitable for any other purpose.
Our audit will be conducted in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America;
the standards for financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of
the United States; the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996; and the provisions of OMB Circular A-133, and will
include tests of accounting records, a determination of major program(s) in accordance with OMB Circular A-133, and
other procedures we consider necessary to enable us to express such opinions and to render the required reports. We
cannot provide assurance that unmodified opinions will be expressed. Circumstances may arise in which it is
necessary for us to modify our opinions or add emphasis-of-matter or other-matter paragraphs. If our opinions on the
financial statements or the Single Audit compliance opinions are other than unmodified, we will discuss the reasons with
you in advance. If, for any reason, we are unable to complete the audit or are unable to form or have not formed
opinions, we may decline to express opinions or to issue a report as a result of this engagement.

Management is responsible for the basic financial statements, schedule of expenditures of federal awards, and all
accompanying information as well as all representations contained therein. Management is also responsible for

Your responsibilities also include identifying significant vendor relationships in which the vendor has responsibility for
program compliance and forthe accuracyand completeness of that information. Your responsibilities include adjusting
the financial statements to correct material misstatements and for confirming to us in the written representation letter

the latest period presented are immaterial, both individually and in the aggregate, to the financial statements taken as a
whole.
You are responsible for the design and implementation of programs and controls to prevent and detect fraud, and for
informing us about all known or suspected fraud affecting the government involving (1) management, (2) employees
who have significant roles in internal control, and (3) others where the fraud could have a material effect on the financial
statements. Your responsibilities include informing us of your knowledge of any allegations of fraud or suspected fraud
affecting the government received in communications from employees, former employees, grantors, regulators, or
others. In addition, you are responsible for identifying and ensuring that the entity complies with applicable laws,
regulations, contracts, agreements, and grants. Additionally, as required by OMB Circular A-133, it is management's
responsibility to follow up and take corrective action on reported audit findings and to prepare a summary schedule of
prior audit findings and a corrective action plan.
You are responsible for the preparation of the schedule of expenditures of federal awards in conformity with OMB
Circular A-133. You agree to include our report on the schedule of expenditures of federal awards in any document that
contains and indicates that we have reported on the schedule of expenditures of federal awards. You also agree to
include the audited financial statements with any presentation of the schedule of expenditures of federal awards that
includes our report thereof. Your responsibilities include acknowledging to us in the written representation letter that (1)

prior period (or, if they have changed, the reasons for such changes); and (4) you have disclosed to us any significant
assumptions or interpretations underlying the measurement or presentation of the supplementary information.
Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining a process for tracking the status of audit findings and
recommendations. Management is also responsible for identifying for us previous financial audits, attestation
engagements, performance audits or other studies related to the objectives discussed in the Audit Objectives section of
this letter. This responsibility includes relaying to us corrective actions taken to address significant findings and
recommendations resulting from those audits, attestation engagements, performance audits, or studies. You are also
responsible for providing management's views on our current findings, conclusions, and recommendations, as well as
your planned corrective actions, for the report, and for the timing and format for providing that information.
Audit Procedures—General
An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial
statements; therefore, our audit will involve judgment about the number of transactions to be examined and the areas to
be tested. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of
significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial
statements. We will plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable rather than absolute assurance about whether the
financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether from (1) errors, (2) fraudulent financial reporting, (3)
misappropriation of assets, or (4) violations of laws or governmental regulations that are attributable to the entity or to
acts by management or employees acting on behalf of the entity. Because the determination of abuse is subjective,
GovernmentAuditing Standards do not expect auditors to provide reasonable assurance of detecting abuse.
Because of the inherent limitations of an audit, combined with the inherent limitations of internal control, and because
we will not perform a detailed examination of all transactions, there is a risk that material misstatements or
noncompliance may exist and not be detected by us, even though the audit is properly planned and performed in
accordance with U.S. generally accepted auditing standards and GovernmentAuditing Standards. In addition, an audit
is not designed to detect immaterial misstatements or violations of laws or governmental regulations that do not have a
Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District
4
direct and material effect on the financial statements or major programs. We will include such matters in the reports
required for the Single Audit. Our responsibility as auditors is limited to the period covered by our audit and does not
extend to later periods for which we are not engaged as auditors.
Our procedures will include tests of documentary evidence supporting the transactions recorded in the accounts, and
may include direct confirmation of receivables and certain other assets and liabilities by correspondence with selected
individuals, funding sources, creditors, and financial institutions. We will request written representations from your
attorneys as part of the engagement, and they may bill you for responding to this inquiry. At the conclusion of our audit,
we will require certain written representations from you about the financial statements and related matters.
Audit Procedures—Internal Controls
Our audit will include obtaining an understanding of the entity and its environment, including internal control, sufficient to
assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements and to design the nature, timing, and extent of
further audit procedures. Tests of controls may be performed to test the effectiveness of certain controls that we
consider relevant to preventing and detecting errors and fraud that are material to the financial statements and to
preventing and detecting misstatements resulting from illegal acts and other noncompliance matters that have a direct
and material effect on the financial statements. Our tests, if performed, will be less in scope than would be necessary to
render an opinion on internal control and, accordingly, no opinion will be expressed in our report on internal control
issued pursuant to Government Auditing Standards.
As required by OMB Circular A-133, we will perform tests of controls over compliance to evaluate the effectiveness of
the design and operation of controls that we consider relevant to preventing or detecting material noncompliance with
compliance requirements applicable to each major federal award program. However, our tests will be less in scope than
would be necessary to render an opinion on those controls and, accordingly, no opinion will be expressed in our report
on internal control issued pursuant to OMB Circular A-133.
An audit is not designed to provide assurance on internal control or to identify significant deficiencies or material
weaknesses. However, during the audit, we will communicate to management and those charged with governance
internal control related matters that are required to be communicated under AICPA professional standards and
Government Auditing Standards, and OMB Circular A-133.
Audit Procedures—Compliance
As partof obtaining reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, we
will perform tests of the District's compliance with the provisions of applicable laws, regulations, contracts, agreements,
and grants, including grant agreements. However, the objectiveof those procedures will not be to provide an opinion on
overall compliance and we will not express such an opinion in our report on compliance issued pursuantto Government
Auditing Standards.
OMB Circular A-133 requiresthat we also plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the
auditee has complied with applicable laws and regulations and the provisions of contracts and grant agreements
applicable to major programs. Our procedures will consist of tests of transactions and other applicable procedures
described in the OMB Circular A-133 Compliance Supplement forthe types of compliance requirements that could have
a direct and material effect on each of the District's major programs. The purpose of these procedures will be to express
an opinion on the District's compliance with requirements applicable to each of its major programs in our report on
compliance issued pursuant to OMB Circular A-133.
Engagement Administration, Fees, and Other
We understand that your employees will prepare all cash or other confirmations we request and will locate any
documents selected by us for testing.
At the conclusion of the engagement, we will complete the appropriate sections of the Data Collection Form that
summarizes our audit findings. It is management's responsibility to submit the reporting package (including financial
statements, schedule of expenditures of federal awards, auditors' reports, and corrective action plan) along with the
Data Collection Form to the federal audit clearinghouse. We will coordinate with you the electronic submission and
certification. If applicable, we will provide copies of our report for you to include with the reporting package you will
submit to pass-through entities. The Data Collection Form and the reporting package must be submitted within the
earlier of 30 days after receipt of the auditors' reports or nine months after the end of the audit period, unless a longer
period is agreed to in advance by the cognizant or oversight agency for audits.
The audit documentation for this engagement is the property of Grau & Associates and constitutes confidential
information. However, pursuant to authority given by law or regulation, we may be requested to make certain audit
documentation available to a cognizant or oversight agency for audit or its designee, a federal agency providing direct
or indirect funding, orthe U.S. GovernmentAccountability Office for purposes of a quality review of the audit, to resolve
audit findings, or to carry out oversight responsibilities. We will notify you of any such request. If requested, access to
Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District
5
such audit documentation will be provided under the supervision ofGrau &Associates personnel. Furthermore, upon
request, we may provide copies of selected audit documentation to the aforementioned parties. These parties may
intend, or decide, to distribute the copies or information contained therein to others, including other governmental
agencies. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties acknowledge that various documents reviewed or produced during
the conduct ofthe audit may be public records under Florida law. The District agrees to notify Grau &Associates ofany
public record request it receives that involves audit documentation.
Our fee for these services will not exceed $28,000 for the September 30, 2013 financial statement audit. The fee for
each annual renewal will be agreed upon separately.
The audit documentation for this engagement will be retained for a minimum of five years after the report release date
or for any additional period requested by a cognizant or oversight agency. If we are aware that a federal awarding
agency orauditee is contesting an audit finding, we will contact the party(ies) contesting the audit finding for guidance
prior to destroying the audit documentation.
Our invoices for these fees will be rendered each month as work progresses and are payable on presentation. Invoices
will be submitted in sufficient detail to demonstrate compliance with the terms of thisagreement. In accordance with our
firm policies, work may be suspended if your account becomes60 days or more overdue and may not be resumed until
your account is paid in full. If we elect to terminate our services for nonpayment, our engagement will be deemed to
have been completed upon written notification of termination, even if we have not completed our report. You will be
obligated to compensate us for all time expended and to reimburse us for all out-of-pocket costs through the date of
termination. The above fee is based on anticipated cooperation from your personnel and the assumption that
unexpected circumstances will not be encountered during the audit. If significant additional time is necessary, we will
discuss it with you and arrive at a new fee estimate.
This agreement may be renewed each year thereafter subject to the mutual agreement by both parties to all terms and
fees.
We will provide you with a copy of our most recent external peer review report and any letter of comment, and any
subsequent peer review reports and letters of comment received during the period of the contract. Our 2010 peer
review report accompanies this letter.
We appreciate the opportunity to be of service to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District and believe this letter
accurately summarizes the significant terms of our engagement. If you have any questions, please let us know. If you
agree with the terms of our engagement as described in this letter, please sign the enclosed copy and return it to us.
Very truly yours,
Grau & Associates

RESOLUTION NO. 3Q-09-13
A RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF THE KEY
LARGO WASTEWATER TREATMENT DISTRICT, LOCATED IN
MONROE COUNTY, FLORIDA, ADOPTING THE BUDGET FOR THE
FISCAL YEAR ENDING SEPTEMBER 2014 FOR THE DISTRICT;
PROVIDING FOR THE GENERAL MANAGER TO EXPEND FUNDS ON
BEHALF OF THE DISTRICT; AND PROVIDING FOR APPLICABILITY
AND AN EFFECTIVE DATE.
WHEREAS, pursuant to the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District Act (Ch.
2002-337, Laws of Florida, as amended) (the "Act"), the business and affairs of the Key
Largo Wastewater Treatment District (the "District") are conducted and administered by
its five-member Board of Commissioners (the "Board"); and
WHEREAS, the Board has those administrative duties set forth in the Act and in
chapter 189, Florida Statutes, as the both may from time to time be amended; and
WHEREAS, pursuant to the Act and section 189.418(3), Florida Statutes, the
Board has the power and the duty to adopt a budget by resolution each fiscal year.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF
COMMISSIONERS OF THE KEY LARGO WASTEWATER TREATMENT DISTRICT
THAT:
Section 1. ADOPTION OF THE BUDGET AND AUTHORIZATION TO EXPEND
FUNDS.
(A)
The District Utility System Budget for the Fiscal Year ending September
30, 2014, attached hereto as Exhibit "A" is incorporated herein and is hereby adopted.
(B) Subject to the limitation in Section 1(G), below, the General Manager is
hereby authorized to expend funds of the District for official purposes of the operation,
maintenance, billing, customer services, construction, debt service payment, capital
improvements and other business activities of the District in accordance with the
adopted Budget.
(C)
No contract or other commitment of funds, written or oral, shall be entered
into without the certification of the Chief Financial Officer that such contract or other
commitment of funds is in the budget and that sufficient cash to meet the contractual or
other commitment of funds will be available within the time allowed for payment under
the Florida Prompt Payment Act. When such certification is made, the Chief Financial
Officer shall record this action in the financial records of the District so as to encumber
those funds and prevent them from being used for other expenditures prior to the
completion of the commitment for which the funds were approved. The Chief Financial
Officer may adjust the actual restricted amount as he or she determines that such a
change is warranted due to the activities related to the commitment.
(D)
The amounts shown within the budget are established as a target level for
each specific type of revenue or expenditure indicated. Recognizing that the items listed
in the Budget may actually be higher or lower than those estimates, the Chief Financial
Officer is authorized to reallocate the adopted Budget within each category. Allocation
of funds from one category to another is prohibited. Only the Board is authorized to
increase the budgeted amounts for a category.
(E)
The General Manager is authorized to spend funds not in the Budget in
the event of an emergency related to the KLWTD Utility System, which the General
Manager reasonably believes may result in: danger or injury to persons; damage to
assets of the District; or the inability of the district to provide wastewater services. As
soon as possible thereafter, the General Manager or Chief Financial Officer shall report
to the Chairman of the Board any such actions taken or to be taken in such
circumstances. However, such communication shall occur no later than 24 hours after
such actions or events.
(F)
The Chief Financial Officer shall notify the Board when he or she
determines that the actual revenues of the utility system are likely to be less than those
indicated in the adopted Budget and shall also prepare a proposed revised Budget for
the Board's review and consideration.
(G)
Pursuant to Resolution 01-01-05, any disbursement in excess of $10,000,
other than emergency contracts as provided in Sections 1(E) of this Resolution, must be
approved by the Board priorto entering into such a contract.
(H)
Pursuant to Resolution 01-01-05, except for emergency expenditures
under Section 1(E), above, any work order equal to or in excess of $10,000 for a
professional services contract previously approved by the Board, must be approved by
the Board prior to accepting such a work order. Those work orders less than $10,000
for such contracts do not require prior Board approval but will be presented to the Board
for ratification.
(I)
The Board authorizes the General Manager and the Chief Financial
Officer to do all acts and things required of them by this Resolution and the Budget for
the full, punctual, and complete performance thereof, and the Chairman and each
member of the Board, officers, attorneys, and other agents of the District are hereby
authorized and directed to execute and deliver any and all papers and instruments and
to do and cause to be done all acts and things necessary or proper for carrying out the
Budget and transactions contemplated by this Resolution, or Florida Statues.
In the absence of a Chief Financial Officer, the Board may appoint an
(J)
individual or entity to act on behalf of the Chief Financial Officer and, in such case, all
duties and responsibilities listed above of the Chief Financial Officer shall inherently
become the duties of that individual or entity.
Section 2.
APPLICABILITY AND EFFECTIVE DATE.
This resolution shall take effect upon adoption by the Board of Commissioners.

Summary Explanation/Background:
There are situations where owners have requested that the District exclude their Parcel from the
District's Assessment roll and waive the Assessments levied against their Parcel, on the grounds that the
Parcel will not receive Wastewater Service. In such cases, the Owners have executed KLWTD Form F-10,
Waiver of Wastewater Service and Acknowledgement of Potential Costs for the Parcel, which Waiver has
been filed with County Clerk. However, some of those Owners have now requested that the District reinstate,
and again provide, wastewater service to the previously-waived Parcel.
Attached is the proposed KLWTD Form F-21 - Reversal of Waiver of Wastewater Service and
Imposition of Costs and Assessments, as the form that owners will have to execute in order to have the
previously issued and filed waiver reversed. This form contains an acceptance of the Reversal of Waiver by
the District, which will be signed by the General Manager. Also attached is KLWTD Form F-22 - Requestfor
Reversal of Waiver.
This matter was originally on the agenda on June 18, 2013, was brought back for further discussion
on August 13, and is now being presented for action incorporating Board directed changes.

Exhibit "A"
Timeline and Overview
•
The State designated the Florida Keys as an Area of Critical State Concern.
In 1979, the State of Florida determined that Monroe County is an area that is so
environmentally sensitive and fragile that the Legislature passed the "Florida
Keys Area Protection Act," which designated the Florida Keys as an "area of
critical state concern."1
•
The Florida Legislature found that central sewer systems are necessary in the
Florida Keys Area of Critical Concern.2
Because the Florida Department of Environmental Protection had determined that
cesspits and septic tanks in the Florida Keys were a primary contributor to water
quality degradation and can lead to an imbalance in the number and diversity of
native aquatic life, the Florida Keys Area Protection Act mandated "the
construction and operation ofwastewatermanagementfacilities ...," in the
Florida Keys.3
•
The State mandated the construction of central sewer systems in the Florida Keys.
In 1998, then Governor Buddy MacKay charged all relevant state and local
agencies and governmental entities to coordinate with Monroe County to execute
its Year 2010 Comprehensive Plan, which included the development of a
countywide sewage system.4
•
The State mandated time limits for the construction of central sewer systems.
In 1999, the State Legislature passed Chapter 99-395, Laws of Florida, which
established binding treatment and disposal requirements for all wastewater
management facilities in Monroe County5 and mandated that they be in
compliance by July 1, 20106.
1§380.0552(3), F.S.; ch. 79-73, § 6, Laws of Florida
2FSS 403.086(10) "The Legislature finds that the discharge of inadequately treated and managed domestic
wastewater from dozens of small wastewater facilities and thousands of septic tanks and other onsite systems in the
Florida Keys compromises the quality of the coastal environment, including nearshore and offshore waters, and
threatens the quality of life and local economies that depend on those resources."
3See §380.0552 (7) 0)
4Fla. Exec. OrderNo. 98-309, Dec. 30, 1998
5Section 6 ("Sewage requirements in Monroe County") ofchapter 99-395, Laws of Florida, required, "all sewage
treatment, reuse, and disposal facilities and all onsite sewage treatment and disposal systems in Monroe County,
[with certain exceptions]" to "comply with the applicable treatment requirements of subsection (6) [of Ch. 99-395.
L.O.F.] by July 1, 2010, and with the rules of the Departmentof Environmental Protection or the Department of
Health, as applicable."
6This date was subsequently extended to December 31, 2015. See, FSS 403.086(10) (b).
The KLWTD was created to provide a central sewer system in Key Largo.
The Florida Keys Area Protection Act7 specifically stated that, "the onlypractical
and cost-effective way tofundamentally improve wastewater management in the
Florida Keys isfor ... special districts establishedfor thepurpose ofcollection,
transmission, treatment, or disposal ofsewage, to timely complete the wastewater
or sewage treatment and disposalfacilities initiated under the workprogram of
... rule 28-20, [FA.C.J. " [emphasis added]. The KLWTD was created in 2002 to
provide a centralized wastewater collection system and treatment plant to serve
the upper Florida Keys, in accordance with the requirements of the Florida Keys
Area Protection Act, and the Work Program mandated under rule 28-20, F.A.C.
Providing central sewer systems in the Florida Keys is more expensive than
elsewhere.
As an ACSC, the Florida Keys are held to a higher standard of wastewater
treatment than other areas of the country and state8; and the KLWTD could not
and cannot construct, operate, and maintain a wastewater collection system and
treatment plant at the same residential unit cost as areas that are not so highly
regulated, or environmentally sensitive, or that do not contain such a high
percentage of land under public ownership.
The State's mandate to construct the KLWTD's central sewer systems was
unfunded.
The State provided little funding to the KLWTD for the construction of its
mandated central sewer system. Responsibility for financing the construction of
the KLWTD's wastewater management facilities fell primarily to the business
owners and homeowners in the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District.9
The State passed legislation to implement the Florida Keys ACSC protection
program.
To correct the inequity of an unfunded mandate, in 2008 the State Legislature
authorized the issuance of $200 million of Everglades restoration bonds10
"specificallyfor thepurpose ofimplementing the Florida KeysArea ofCritical
State Concern protection program."''
7As well as FSS 403.086(10), which provides that, "The Legislature also finds that the only practical and costeffective way to fundamentally improve wastewater management in the Florida Keys is for the local governments in
Monroe County, including those special districts established for the purpose of collection, transmission, treatment,
or disposal of sewage,to timely completethe wastewater or sewage treatment and disposal facilities initiated under
the work program of Administration Commission rule28-20, Florida Administrative Code, and the Monroe County
Sanitary Master Wastewater Plan, dated June 2000."
FSS 381.0065 (4) (1) "For the Florida Keys, the department shall adopt a special rule for the construction,
installation, modification, operation, repair, maintenance, and performance of onsite sewage treatment and disposal
systems which considersthe unique soil conditions and water table elevations, densities, and setback requirements."
Underchapter 99-395, L.O.F., the responsibility for meeting these requirements rests with the individual owners of
the wastewater systems, whether local governments, private entities or homeowners.
10 Chapter 2008-049, L.O.F., which amended and modified section 215.619, F.S.
11 FSS sections 380.05 and 380.0552.
•
That legislation was specifically designed to help fund the KLWTD's central sewer
system.
The amended section 215.619(1), F.S., specifically indicates that, interalia, the
Everglades restoration bonds were being authorized, "tofinance or refinance the
cost of... wastewater management projects identified in the Keys Wastewater
Plan, dated November 2007, and submittedto the Florida House of
Representatives on December 4, 2007..." [emphasis added]. The "wastewater
managementprojects identified in the Keys Wastewater Plan, dated November
2007" include the centralized wastewater treatment plant and collection system
constructed and maintained by the KLWTD.
•
The KLWTD reasonably believed it would receive the promised funding.
The KLWTD reasonably believed that if it made a good faith effort to complete
its wastewater collection and sewage treatment and disposal facilities in a timely
fashion, it would be entitled to its fair and equitable share of the proceeds from
the $200 million of Everglades restoration bonds, and that those funds could be
used by the KLWTD to pay for its central sewer system.
•
The KLWTD relied upon the legislation and representations of the State.
Based upon the representations from the State and the above-cited legislation, the
KLWTD constructed wastewater collection and sewage treatment and disposal
facilities at a cost of approximately $150 dollars and it incurred approximately
$89,000,000 in debt.
•
•
The KLWTD has not received the promised funding from the State.
In March of 2012, the State Legislature appropriated and the Governor
subsequently approved the first of four $50 million yearly allocations of the $200
million in Mayfield Grant Funds. However, this money was disbursed with the
stipulation that 60% of the said $50 million be distributed to the County for the
Cudjoe Regional Wastewater Project and that 40% be distributed to Islamorada.
No money went to the KLWTD.
It does not appear that the KLWTD will receive the promised funding from the
State.
It now appears that if the State disburses the remaining $150 million of
Everglades restoration bonds to Monroe County, those funds will be disbursed
with the stipulation that said funding will only be used for the purpose of
financing the construction of new centralized wastewater treatment plants and
collection systems throughout the Florida Keys. It further appears that the State
will not disburse any of the remaining $150 million of Everglades restoration
bonds to the KLWTD.
•
The State has an obligation to live up to its promises and its commitments.
It is simply not fair for the KLWTD to be punished for being one of the first
entities in the Florida Keys to comply with the State's centralized wastewater
treatment system mandate. To construct its state-of-the-art wastewater system,
the KLWTD incurred approximately $89,000,000 in debt, with a balloon payment
of $21,000,000 coming due in January 2017. The KLWTD incurred that debt
based upon the representations and promises of funding assistance made to it by
the State.
Fundamental fairness demands that the KLWTD receive its fair share of funding.
The inequitable funding of the wastewater systems in the Florida Keys has
resulted in Key Largo residents paying nearly $1,500 more for the typical single
family home than residents in other areas of unincorporated Monroe County.
Businesses in Key Largo are similarly overburdened. If this disparity is not
corrected, it will have a detrimental effect on the ability of residents to afford to
live in Key Largo and on the ability of businesses to compete effectively.
