Mark this on your calendar… We hear from Carlos Heredia, the Planning Section Supervisor for the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department, that Cutler Bay-ites may want to participate in a special gathering for information and input regarding a proposed new addition to their local facility. The meeting is on Wednesday, November 13, at 7:00 p.m. in the Town Hall Chambers, 10720 Caribbean Boulevard.
“Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department cordially invites area residents to attend a public meeting to discuss the construction of a 150’ high communications monopole to be located at Cutler Ridge Fire Station 34, located at 10850 SW 211 Street in Cutler Bay,” says Carlos. The documents are on file and may be examined during regular business hours at the Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department Headquarters located at 9300 NW 41 Street, Doral, FL 33178.
For further information or if you have questions prior to the meeting, please contact Carlos Heredia, at 786-331-4544 or send him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s cooking?We hear that the “Rib Tickler’s” barbecue bash the town threw a little over a week ago was a big hit, which is understandable. In fact, one reliable source tells us that the only complaint heard at the tasty event had nothing to do with the food or the cook-off challenge, but was instead about the fact that the ongoing work on Old Cutler Road hadn’t been finished yet. Residents may like their barbecue meat “medium well” but clearly they want their road project “done”! We’re pretty sure it will be, soon.
Light those candles! Cutler Bay Councilwoman Peggy Bell’s birthday is November 10th, so break out the ice cream and cake. Many happy returns, Peggy!
You pick it! The next outdoor movie will be shown at Lakes by the Bay Park on Friday, December 13, but nobody knows what it will be, yet. Why not? Because Cutler Bay’s Parks and Recreation Department wants you to vote for it. Sound fair? Here are the choices:
Christmas With the Kranks (PG)
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole
Fred Claus (PG)
Jack Frost (PG)
The Nightmare Before Christmas (PG)
The Polar Express (G)
Here’s how it works. You may e-mail your selection to Parks@cutlerbayfl.gov, by typing the movie title in the “subject” line of your e-mail. Only one vote per e-mail address, please. Voting will be closed on Friday, November 15 at midnight. Town staff says that residents can check the website — www.cutlerbayfl.gov — after November 18th to see which movie got the most votes.
