Newly elected Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez will discuss his proposed County Budget with residents at a Miami-Dade County Town Hall Meeting hosted by the Kendall Federation of Homeowner Associations on July 28th. This will be the Mayor's first such gathering with citizens. The meeting will begin at 7pm at the Kendall Village Center Civic Pavilion, 8625 SW 124th Avenue which is in front of the Regal Theater.
The Mayor's spending plan has already produced news headlines as the proposed blueprint calls for the elimination of 1,300 county jobs, requires concessions from county employees and slates 13 libraries for closure. The budget also cuts property tax rates and generally protects services currently afforded children and seniors.
KFHA President Lee Zimmerman expects a tremendous turnout for the meeting. "Mayor Gimenez faces an extremely difficult task and there are no simple solutions. Taxpayers, county employees and union members will want to be heard and we'll do our best to accommodate everyone. The KFHA is honored that the Mayor is allowing the KFHA to host his first Town Hall Meeting."
The KFHA urges attendees to arrive early in order to guarantee seating.
