I had sent an e-mail to Miriam, Alex’s mother to say hello and tell her she is in our thoughts, especially for this week and time of year. She thanked us and said she would be returning to the scene tomorrow evening and saying a prayer for “PAPO”. For the new members who didn’t have the privilege of knowing or working with Alex you missed out on meeting a great human being.
On Tuesday the PBA filed an official complaint with the Chief Building Official at city hall with regards to the construction on the second floor. Whoever applied for the permit (see on-line) at city hall indicated a cost of $2,000 and “office alterations”. They failed to mention the moving of walls and electrical outlets added/changed in the construction. This would be a violation for the normal person, however a likely cover up by our Dade County leaders.
The PBA received a response from the A/G and has some direction on obtaining more information on the contracts/consultants retained by FF/BK and CSR/KD. A PBA attorney has been assigned to research the Public Records initiative. BTW the consultant contracts have all be renewed through FY 2014 and the cost of the contracts remain under $25,000 to fly under the radar not requiring commission approval. SLICK.
Attached are two articles a member thought would be interesting reading.
