Help reduce Flooding...Keep Streets and Storm Drains Clean
The heavy rains that recently impacted Miami-Dade County demonstrate of keeping storm drains clear from debris. Miami-Dade County's Department of Transportation and Public Works (DTPW), with the assistance of other County Departments and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Sally Heyman, District 4, have launched a public education campaign to remind landscapers and residents that they shouldn't blow grass clippings onto the streets and into the storm drainage system.

Forget the repairs, Miami-Dade needs a new courthouse
The courthouse was constructed from 1925 through 1928, when Model Ts rumbled up Flagler Street and Dade County had a population of under 43,000. Today, our county’s population is more than 2.6 million, and more than 1 million people visit the courthouse annually, including 65,000 citizens called for jury duty, people using the law library and thousands of lawyers, litigants and witnesses.
It is time to face reality and build a properly sized courthouse suited for modern times rather than the times of the Model T.
