Miami Gardens may increase taxes to hire 10 new police officers

The City of Miami Gardens
have increased the city’s tax rate from $6.30 per $1,000 of assessed property value to $6.90 in order to hire 10 new police officers — a 9.5 percent rate increase totaling an extra $15.60 per year.

Additionally, the council balanced the city’s budget — which was $2 million dollars in the hole, by cutting back expenses, laying off eight city employees, converting one full-time city employee to part-time, and using yearly gained revenue.

Property values went down by 4.8 percent for 2013, City Manager Danny Crew said residents can look forward to a brighter future.  “We’ve had a tough four years, but we’ve been very fortunate to retain our financial position,” Crew said. “We have about $11 million in reserves, which is a pretty strong reserve, and we are rated by three of the top rating agencies in New York with an A+.”
