(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- Commissioner Esteban Bovo, Jr. is reminding Miami-Dade residents that the County’s budget presentations are currently open to the public. Until Thursday, March 29, 2012, County departments will be giving in-depth presentations and budget submissions to the Office of Budget Management for the next fiscal year. Commissioner Bovo has attended some meetings with plans to sit in on more to fully understand Miami-Dade’s budget process.
“These presentations give personnel a clearer idea of the needs of each department to better serve Miami-Dade residents,” said Commissioner Bovo. “We can also determine where we might be able to tighten our belts if needed without dramatically impacting residents. I would encourage any citizen of Miami-Dade to attend these meetings and understand how our departments work.”
