FY 2016-17 Adopted Budget and Multi-Year Capital Plan
I am proud to submit to you the FY 2016-17 Final Adopted Budget and Multi-year Capital Plan. This document represents the collective efforts of my Administration, the Board of County Commissioners, and our residents to ensure our community is resilient and ready for the future, while controlling the cost of government and continuing the efficient and effective delivery of services.
We must be good stewards of the public’s money and ensure that our residents keep as much of their hard-earned dollars as possible. The FY 2016-17 Adopted Budget keeps the operating millage rates flat and reduces the millage rates for both the countywide and Fire Rescue voted debt. The per capita cost of the tax-supported portion of our government for FY 2016-17 is $494.00, which is 35 percent lower than at its highest over a decade ago. Since I became Mayor, taxpayers have saved more than $1.2 billion as a whole, which is the equivalent of just under $1,300 for the average household. We are always looking for innovative ways to manage costs while allowing for savings to be used to restore and responsibly enhance services.
I have always fought for the future of Miami-Dade County. Ensuring our children and grandchildren will have a safe, vibrant, financially sound community - a resilient community - has always been my focus as Mayor. In May 2016, Miami-Dade County, the City of Miami, and the City of Miami Beach joined together to become members of the Rockefeller 100 Resilient Cities global network. As part of Resilient Cities, Miami-Dade will work with innovative cities around the world to develop strategies to improve our local economy, provide greater opportunities for our residents, and strengthen our budget to better prepare for storms, sea-level rise, and other natural and man-made threats. Earlier this year, an agenda-setting session was facilitated by the Rockefeller 100 Resilient Cities organization, bringing together community leaders, climate change and resilience experts, and governmental officials to establish a foundation for our efforts together.
