Miami-Dade Commission Holds Second And Final Budget Hearing


Expect a marathon meeting as Miami-Dade Commissioners ok final budget approvals during a second and final budget hearing at 5 o'clock tonight. Commissioner Joe Martinez is against the proposed 3.7-percent increase in water fees. Water fees only make up a small portion of the mayor's 9-billion-dollar budget padded with federal COVID relief stimulus funds. The proposal includes 60-million in pay increases for union workers, 7-million for Jackson Health hospital system for vaccine expenses and 1-million for county groups helping Haitian and Venezuelan citizens apply for Temporary Protected Status.
