Budget Cuts for Police, Fire Rescue and Libraries?
08/06/13 - Tuesday's Topical Currents examines the proposed Miami-Dade budget for the fiscal year. Of course, controversy has brewed. This month, there are town-hall meetings with officials—including Mayor Carlos Gimenez -- and a Commission vote should come September 10th. At risk for cuts are police, fire rescue units, library closures and animal services. Commissioners are in a position of either making cuts . . . or increasing property tax rates. That’s Topical Currents . . . Tuesday at 1:00pm on WLRN-HD1 rebroadcast at 7:00pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live program.
