The Florida legislature is in session. Before the lawmaking began, a group of officials from Miami Lakes visited the Capitol in Tallahassee.
The local council members and town leaders met with Fla. Sen. Bryan Avila, R-Miami Springs and Fla. Rep. Tom Fabricio, R-Miami Lakes.
The group also called on Fla. Sen. Ana Maria Rodriguez, R-Doral; Rep. Alina Garcia, R-Miami and Rep. Juan Carlos Porras, R-Miami.
Miami Lakes Mayor Manny Cid wrote on social media that while representing the town, the officials discussed its top priority, “mitigating rock mining blasting.”
