Miami Shores Village News – December 2012

More Miami Shores News from Miami Shores City Council member, Jesse Walters. We have to love his willingness to share and keep us informed.

I want to take this opportunity to send warmest wishes to all of my friends in Miami Shores and beyond as we celebrate the holidays.  Whatever you celebrate this month – be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or just a day off – enjoy!  My partner David Traupman and our daughter Faith join me in wishing you a healthy and prosperous New Year too.

Just a few items to update you all on as we close out the 2012 year in Miami Shores Council:

  • The Village’s credit rating has increased to Aa3.
  • I moved to post the minutes of all Village board and commission meetings on our Web site.
  • The Village has planted landscaping at the site of four chain link fence street barriers on our west side.
  • The Village is monitoring the trash problem at the Chase Bank parking lot downtown.

Plus …
