2012 Budget

Commissioner Souto voted in favor of adopting the Miami-Dade County FY 2012-13 Budget on Thursday, September 20, 2012. The FY 2012-13 Adopted Budget further reduces the tax rates by a combined two percent, to offset the growth in prop­erty values. This Adopted Budget includes $4.3 million less in property tax revenue than the FY 2011-12 Adopted Budget, and saves taxpayers more than $405 million over two years. This Budget will maintain the same levels of service and avoids further employee layoffs. It maintains the same level of ser­vices for our police, parks, public works, and other municipal services. We are improving the level of service for median mowing on main county streets by 3 additional mowing cycles per year during the rain season. I was also able to restore the Raices Program a Hispanic Cultural Program that has operated out of Miller Drive Park for two decades to teach children mu­sic, dance, art and culture.
