Miami-Dade County Commission Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa's statement about the millage rate decision


(MIAMI) –  “I joined the majority of my colleagues on the Board today in voting to adopt the Mayor’s recommendation to maintain the County’s current millage rate because I do not believe we should be raising taxes at a time when so many of our residents are still struggling economically. The budget will include $4 million to begin funding the recommendations contained in last November’s non-binding straw ballot to enhance the County’s animal services programs. I look forward to working with the Mayor and my colleagues to identify savings to minimize the impact of any budget cuts on our residents.”
