Virtual Town Hall on Public Safety
Residents deserve to be heard on the critical topic of public safety. Recent events have shown us that while we have vastly increased safety efforts in our City, we can, should, and will do better. Enough is enough!
Join MBPD Chief Rick Clements and me this Monday, February 8, from 5 pm – 6 pm for a Virtual Town Hall on enhancing public safety in South Beach.
I am again focused on safety measures this month at the Miami Beach City Commission Meeting (agenda here) on Wednesday, February 10th at 8:30 am. Here are some of the items I have sponsored/co-sponsored that I would like to highlight:
Ordinance: outlining criteria to secure a sidewalk cafe permit. (R5 J – Sponsors Commissioner Samuelian and Vice-Major Meiner)
Discussion: collaboration with Coast Guard, Florida Fish and Wildlife, and MBPD on Noise/ Water Safety. (R9 E – Sponsor Commissioner Samuelian)
Referral: Neighborhoods – SOBESafe Resolution on Public Safety Technology. (C4 J – Sponsor Commissioner Samuelian, Co-Sponsor Commissioner Gongora)
Referral: Neighborhoods – Noise from Unorthodox Vehicles. (C4 K – Sponsor Commissioner Samuelian)
Resolution: urging the Florida State Legislature to adopt standalone stay away orders. (C7 U – Sponsors Commissioner Samuelian and Commissioner Góngora)
Also next week, the City will host a Virtual Town Hall on February 11th at 4 pm on the City Manager search. I forcefully advocated for community input and want to hear your valuable feedback.
Yours in service,
