The Town of Miami Lakes is celebrating two decades since incorporation as a municipality and has added “20 Years of Growing Beautifully” to its logo and town seal.
The new seal, which hangs above the council dais, was unveiled on Dec. 5 at town hall.
Future events to observe the anniversary are planned for throughout the year to mark milestones in the town’s history and growth.
Miami Lakes became the 31st local government in Miami-Dade County on Dec. 5, 2000.
That achievement was accomplished after volunteers worked for years to be able to set town borders and gain control over development, zoning, municipal services and to have a dedicated police force.
The new logo was designed and installed by MVP Advertising of Miami Gardens at a cost of $1,750, the town said.
Present for the unveiling of the new logo were Joseph Sosa, assistant to Miami Lakes Mayor Manny Cid, who was out of town; former Vice Mayor Nelson Rodriguez; Deputy Town Attorney Lorenzo Cobiella; Jessica Alonso-Mendoza, daughter of the late, former Vice Mayor Roberto Alonso; Councilman Tony Fernandez; Councilwoman Marilyn Ruano; Vice Mayor Luis Collazo; Councilman Josh Dieguez; Town Clerk Gina Inguanzo; Wayne Slaton, the town’s first mayor and Town Manager Edward Pidermann, shown in the photo above.
