(The Center Square) – A $2.5 billion bond referendum for infrastructure and climate change mitigation is being proposed for voter approval this November by Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava.
“The state of the county is strong,” she said in a speech Wednesday. “We got here today because we were brave in the face of adversity, we were bold in the face of uncertainty, and we were courageous in laying the foundation for the future.”
The referendum is still subject to approval by the Miami-Dade Commission. If approved by voters in November, the bonds would be repaid with property tax revenue.
