Chairman Monestime's statement on Mayor's proposed budget


(MIAMI-DADE, FL) – “The Proposed Budget appears to respond to calls by the County Commission to improve the quality of various services to our residents. That's a good start. While the operational budgets of many departments will increase, the overall strategic direction of county government remains uncertain. Ultimately, the county budget should be an expression of the shared vision of our commission.  I look forward to hearing from the public, consulting with our community based organizations in service delivery, and working with my colleagues to define a collective vision for the future of our county.”

– Chairman Jean Monestime, Board of County Commissioners
