FY 2016-17 Proposed Budget and Multi-Year Capital Plan
My fellow residents,
I have always fought for the future of Miami-Dade County. Ensuring our children and grandchildren will have a safe, vibrant, financially sound community has always been my focus as Mayor. Since I was elected Mayor in 2011, I have put Miami-Dade’s financial house in order. Today, our financial outlook is strong: our financial forecast is balanced with conservative growth estimates and without a need to raise tax rates to support operations. But our County government requires more than financial strength to weather the storms ahead. Climate change and international political fluctuations will affect our financial markets and our economy. It is our duty as Miamians to build a safe, resilient community that can withstand these stresses and serve as a welcoming place for our 2.7 million residents, the millions who visit each year, and future generations of Miamians.
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. To support our efforts, in FY 2015-16, I championed establishing an Office of Resilience and appointing a Chief Resilience Officer to lead Miami-Dade County in the development of a comprehensive and cohesive resilience plan for our government and to collaborate with our 34 municipalities and neighboring counties to develop a resilience plan for the region.
The FY 2016-17 Proposed Budget is a reflection of this focus on allocating our resources to enhance the resilience of Miami-Dade County and enhance our residents’ quality of life. There are four dimensions of resilience that serve as the pillars of our resilience framework:
- Health & Wellbeing
- Economy & Society
- Infrastructure & Environment
- Leadership & Strategy
