Budget Cuts for Police, Fire Rescue and Libraries?
08/06/13 - Tuesday's Topical Currents examines the proposed Miami-Dade budget for the fiscal year. Of course, controversy has brewed. This month, there are town-hall meetings with officials—including Mayor Carlos Gimenez -- and a Commission vote should come September 10th.
