“PUTTING THE PEOPLE’S BUSINESS FIRST”
I am sponsoring an Ordinance at the October 3, 2017 BCC. This ordinance will amend Section 2029 of the MiamiDade County Code. The purpose of this ordinance is to prevent the Board of County Commissioners from waiving the 20% consent required from the resident electors of a certain area to create a Municipal Advisory Committee (MAC). This ordinance is very important for our County and our residents as it will ensure a minimum 20% consent of the resident electors have an interest to incorporate.
Please Share Your Thoughts
In the past twenty five years, most of us have been through many hurricanes dating back to Andrew. In 2005 we had Wilma and a few days ago we had Irma. I would like to hear your input on how to be better prepared and I believe others would as well. What would you do different next time, and there will be a next time, a hurricane threatens us? You are certainly welcome to air your complaints but I believe our readers would benefit more from what you learned. Please take a few minutes and share your thoughts through our district email: firstname.lastname@example.org
RED CROSS RELIEF EFFORTS ONGOING DONATE TO HELP VICTIMS OF HURRICANE MARIA
Florida is still recovering from Hurricane Irma but there are others that still face the insurmountable struggle of trying to get their lives back in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. I ask you to please join me in supporting the Red Cross by donating today to help fund their relief efforts. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims of Hurricane Irma and Maria.

Pet license tags get a digital upgrade
Starting October 1, 2017, MiamiDade Animal Services (Animal Services) is replacing the traditional metal dog license tags with new cuttingedge digital license/identification tags that can help lost pets get back home more quickly.
In addition to a license tag number, the new digital tags are equipped with a unique QR code (Quick Response Code) that when scanned will access a web page with the pet’s information. The added QR code increases the ability immediately and safely access a pet’s encrypted, critical data, including multiple emergency contact phone numbers, medications, license and rabies tag information, microchip number, vaccinations, pet medical insurance status, and much more.
