Pool Cost An 8 lane 50 meter pool is estimated to cost $1.2 million according to USA Swimming. I say $1.5 million for the pool. Another $500k for the facilities. Even at $1mm for the facilities, you-re talking $2.5mm for construction. These guys better not be throwing down $3million + numbers around, but it-s Miami Springs and the little kickback town that could.

Agree I-m afraid of an expensive build that requires more maintenance, staffing, and liability than what we have today. Friggin lazy river? do you know how many lifeguards you need for that? it-s not an aquatic center, it-s a pool. I-d be happy if they redesigned a pool like we have today that-s 50 meters long by 25 yards wide. Plenty of space for meets. Maybe a couple of slides and a kiddie learning area. DONE. How much? $1.5mm?

Wrong I am not pro or con cops. I am fearful that all of these meetings for public input are simply lip service to the requirement rather than actual fact finding. Borgmann presented a full blown plan for his fire sale aquatic center without public input. People need to remember that the bigger the facility the bigger the cost and the more profit for the construction people. So of course they are going to go bigger. Remember that what we need, what we can afford is most likely less than what we would like to have. Dreaming about a Ferrari and owning a ford is about our speed. I would simply like the new design to be based on residents use and needs....not pie in the sky revenue schemes that will fail.

I get the feeling I get the feeling that the majority of posters here are Cops or Cop Sympathizers. I now understand why you are so against fixing up the pool or have issues with the tennis courts, country clubs etc. You are against any government spending for services. You are against any government spending at all - unless it is to fund your retirement golden parachute. I-m sorry that you won-t continued to get paid $80k a year long after you "retired" but continue to pick up a second paycheck while working for MetroDade on the taxpayer dime. You want to continue to receive your outdated plush pensions which basically have been weeded out for every other profession, than you are going to have to pay for it, enough riding on the taxpayer back.

Pool Residents! The purpose of the three town hall meetings being held on April 25 and 26 is to get input from you as to what should be built there so that a cost can be determined. At this point any speculation as to what will bebbuilt and how much it will cost is just pure speculation, lets let the process work itself out before we begin putting eveything down based on what ifs!

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:

City Millage Rate Comparison
Doral 2.2215 72% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
Sweetwater 2.9200 62% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
Hialeah Gardens 5.3812 31% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
Medley 5.4000 30% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
VG 5.4233 29% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
Coral Gables 5.6290 27% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
Hialeah 6.3018 19% lower tax rate than Miami Springs
Miami Springs 7.6710
