More Miami Shores News from Miami Shores City Council member, Jesse Walters. We have to love his willingness to share and keep us informed.

I want to take this opportunity to send warmest wishes to all of my friends in Miami Shores and beyond as we celebrate the holidays.  Whatever you celebrate this month - be it Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or just a day off - enjoy!  My partner David Traupman and our daughter Faith join me in wishing you a healthy and prosperous New Year too.

Just a few items to update you all on as we close out the 2012 year in Miami Shores Council:

  • The Village's credit rating has increased to Aa3.
  • I moved to post the minutes of all Village board and commission meetings on our Web site.
  • The Village has planted landscaping at the site of four chain link fence street barriers on our west side.
  • The Village is monitoring the trash problem at the Chase Bank parking lot downtown.

Plus ...

Crime is down significantly in Miami Shores!  Year-to-date numbers vs. 2011:

Burglary down from 132 to 120, larceny down from 457 to 363, grand theft auto down from 32 to 22, and arrests are down from 628 to 468!

You can purchase canisters of lady bugs, a natural enemy of white flies, on the Web for about $6-$10 per tree. Click here to learn more.

I am elected to serve you. Please call me anytime I can be of assistance in any matter.

Thanks for reading!

Jesse Walters, Village Councilman
