WAKE UP FOLKS The city council is trying to purposely sink Miami Springs into financial ruin. That way they can sell the golf course property for building homes, townhouses etc. This idea came from the current council and the ring leader Z.
The golf course coukd be profitable and a great benefit to our community but when you purposely keep a guy running the food and beverage who lines the pockets of the Mayor and council we need to throw all out in April!!!
NEW SCHOOL IS THERE A NEW SCHOOL OPENING IN MIAMI SPRINGS?
Tired No police contract for five years, but yet, in less than one we are well on our way to getting that dream jacuzzi and second recreational center we all are "demanding" and have been dreaming about (sarcasm of course), right mayor? Get the heck outta here! No one is demanding a smaller pool, period! Get over yourself Z! I sure hope the rumors about not being able to secure a loan are true. No bank could be that stupid, and give a city like this a loan for a project like that.
Tired x3 I think you meant *thank god* and i agree with you. I don-t normally get involved during times of election, but this time im going to do my best to make sure these turds dont get reelected. They have taken a dump on this city and called it flowers for way to long. New blood needed, enough of this.
Tired x3 This city council is a f*cking joke and i-m partially to blame. i voted for two of the 5 idiots up there... I-m so disappointed in myself. I swear, these morons haven-t got a clue. They are financially ruining this city, down into the ground. I wonder if they go home every night patting themselves on the back for a job well done. They are legends in their own mind and sadly their wives probably look up to them. Poor woman, they all married men who should have been aborted before being brought into this world. Aquatic center, sod, golf course losses, police situation, pelican Playhouse, tennis courts???? The list goes on and on. Take god, election time is just around the corner. Maybe as residents we can right our wrongs, start fresh and move forward.

Springs Taxes Up Nearly 10%
On Monday, September 23rd, 2013, the Miami Springs City Council passed the fiscal budget for 2013 - 2014. It included an increase in the millage rate from 6.9950 to 7.6710. That equates to a 9.66% tax increase.
However, not everyone agreed to the budget in the 4 to 1 vote. Councilman and former mayor, Billy Bain, voted no. Michael Windrem, Zavier Garcia, George Lob, and Jaime Petralanda all voted for the budget during Monday's final budget meeting.
To put the 7.6710 millage rate in perspective, you can compare the Miami Springs millage rate to the proposed millage rates from our neighboring communities:
||72% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
||62% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
||31% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
||30% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
||29% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
||27% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
||19% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
