Mayor Carlos Alvarez to release proposed budget for FY 2009-2010 Today

Mayor Carlos Alvarez will release and discuss details of the proposed budget for FY 2009-2010 at a news conference today, at noon. He said:

"Miami-Dade County is facing a budget gap of nearly $400 million, my goal is to present a responsible budget proposal that balances the demands for service with the costs of providing that service. Every hard choice is being considered, and together with our Board of County Commissioners, we will work to address the needs of our community."

Through targeted reductions, Miami-Dade County has successfully closed budget gaps totaling more than $400 million dollars during the past two fiscal years.

    I seriously doubt that the Mayor can deliver "a responsible budget proposal" after his forray into professional baseball stadium support. When he says "every hard choice is being considered" is he talking tax increases? Back to the books, Mr. Mayor. Start making cuts.

    The cuts he made were catastrophic to parks.
