The West Kendall Municipal Advisory Committee studying an area south of Kendall Drive (MAC3) has postponed meetings until two new members can be appointed by Miami-Dade Commissioner Juan C. Zapata.
Humberto Ortega and Herman Irizarry have resigned from the fivemember MAC3, leaving the board with only three members, one short of a quorum to continue its study, according to GiGi Bolt, analyst with Miami-Dade County Budgeting and Management.
“Until the commissioner can appoint at least one new member to provide a working quorum of four out of seven, the study must be postponed,” she said.
The resignations have left Ory Dawes, Patricia “Shannen” Davis and Harry Hoffman as MAC3’s only active members. Charged with studying an area south of SW 88th Street (Kendall Drive) to SW 152nd Street, from 137th Avenue to SW 177th (Krome) Avenue, the group has conducted two meetings since its formation and initial session on Mar. 17.
