The first order of business for the Miami-Dade County Commission’s last meeting of the year Tuesday will be to uphold or override a veto by Mayor Carlos Gimenez.
On Saturday, Gimenez rejected the commission’s decision two weeks ago to restore most county workers’ pay by ending a requirement that they contribute 5 percent of their base pay toward group healthcare costs.
The mayor offered a compromise: keeping the healthcare contribution but giving the lowest-paid employees a one-time bonus to alleviate some of their economic hardship.

With stories ranging from adopted shelter dogs now volunteering at local hospitals to a family choosing a new feline friend to join their lives, “Shelter Me” emphasizes all of the positive work these animals contribute to the world.
