Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez statement on setting the millage rate

"I'm pleased with the outcome of today's meeting and appreciate the Commission's willingness to adopt my proposed combined millage rate for Fiscal Year 2011-12.  This is a positive first step in the budget process: the financial parameters are set and now we can begin making the tough decisions that our residents - and this economy - require of us."

"Rolling back property tax rates to 2009-10 levels fulfills a pledge that I made to our residents, and I'm optimistic that we will be able to hash out a budget in the next two months," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez.
