County Commission approves creating the Miami-Dade Court Capital Infrastructure Task Force Sponsored by Commissioner Rebeca Sosa


(MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL) – The Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners approved a resolution sponsored by Commissioner Rebeca Sosa creating the Miami-Dade Court Capital Infrastructure Task Force.

The new Miami-Dade Court Capital Infrastructure Task Force will be tasked with the review of Miami-Dade County’s trial court infrastructure needs and identify any needed repairs to existing facilities as well as any current or future infrastructure expansion needs.

Experts in the fields of engineering, construction, real estate, financing, and architecture will also recommend mechanisms on how to finance repairs and possible expansions of court facilities. Industry professionals interested in serving in the newly created task force may submit their interest to the Clerk of Courts. “The justice system is a cornerstone of our democracy,” said Commissioner Rebeca Sosa.

“The recommendations from the Court Capital Infrastructure Task Force will help us propose measures to ensure that our justice system is housed with the dignity it deserves.”
