ISSUES: M-D County – Transit, Development & Budget

Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s push to bring Tri-Rail downtown took another step forward this week with the approval of $13.9 million in county transit taxes. These funds would bring the government-run commuter line to a new rail depot in Downtown Miami, but not before a final vote later this month. And what will this year’s county budget look like – will there be layoffs? tax cuts or increases? Communications Director for the county, Michael Hernandez, discusses this and more county developments.
