FY 2015-16 Proposed Budget and Multi-Year Capital Plan
I am pleased to submit the FY 2015-16 Proposed Budget and Multi-Year Capital Plan, which includes first and foremost enhancements to your services, investments in equipment, facilities and reserves, and resources to address critical issues facing our community: public safety and transportation. Our five-year forecast remains balanced and we have virtually eliminated the use of one-time revenues to support services. In other words, our FY 2015-16 Proposed Budget is the foundation for a sustainable financial future.
You elected me because I promised to transform the way Miami-Dade County government serves its residents, businesses, and visitors. For the past four years my administration has worked diligently with all parties to keep that promise, to ensure that we are utilizing your tax dollars as efficiently and effectively as possible. We have reduced the total number of budgeted positions within County government by 1,439, saving $982 million in taxpayer dollars. In fact, if the flat tax rate I am proposing for FY 2015-16 is approved by the Board of County Commissioners, the average homeowner will have saved nearly $1,000 in property taxes over the past four years.
Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez
