Mayor Manny Cid will deliver first State of Town address Oct. 17

Miami Lakes Mayor Manny Cid delivers his first State of the Town Address, which is scheduled for 6 p.m., Tuesday, October 17 at Town Hall, 6601 Main Street.

The event is sponsored by JetStream Federal Credit Union and will be catered by the Miami Lakes Educational Center’s Culinary Arts Program students.

Cid will highlight the town’s accomplishments amid his first term as mayor and Miami Lakes priorities for the new fiscal year while recognizing the Town’s business, volunteer and employee of the year.

U.S. Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart will be a special guest for the event.

Last month, the town voted to keep the same rate of 2.335 for property taxes and approved a $26 million budget for fiscal year 2017-2018.

The town is focusing on improving the town’s parks and recreation areas; reducing traffic congestion; erecting a roadway extension to connect to a public works storage and boat yard; and make roadway and drainage improvements.

But the town is still in the clean-up and recovery stage after Hurricane Irma, as crews continue to remove large trees and debris from Miami Lakes’ business, residential and parks areas.

Responding to Cid’s live Facebook posts, many residents praised council members and town staff for assisting residents after the storm. 

Cid defeated then-incumbent mayor Michael Pizzi to become the town’s mayor 11 months ago after serving four years as a councilman.
