Affidavit for Local State of Emergency

My name is Daniella Levine Cava.  I am the Mayor of Miami-Dade County. As part of my role as Mayor, I ultimately oversee the operations of the Miami-Dade Police Department. The Miami-Dade Police Department continues its investigation regarding the June 24, 2021 collapse of the residential building located at 8777 Collins Avenue, known as Champlain Towers South.

Extending the Local State of Emergency will allow Miami-Dade County to seek reimbursement from state and federal governments as well as to qualify for available state and federal funding.

Further Affiant sayeth naught.
