Hallandale Beach keeps moving forward. This past week was filled with various activities that promote our residents, our diversity and our families. I appreciate Broward County Property Appraiser Marty Kair visiting our city and speaking to our residents at the last Broward County Condo Board association last Monday. His team also offered a workshop at the Cultural Center that focused on Homestead, Seniors, and other exemption applications. We appreciate all the knowledge we can get. For more information about property tax exemptions, please visit: http://www.bcpa.net/homestead.asp.
Our community came together to celebrate Community Unity Black History Month Praise Celebration at Foster Park last Friday. I was happy to see Vice Mayor Javellana there with the community. I wish I could have attended, but was not feeling well. Check out the pictures on the City’s Facebook page to view all the excitement that took place. Visit www.facebook.com/cityofhallandalebeach
On Saturday, some of our elected officials and our Police Chief attended the Woman’s Auxiliary of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Event. Vice Mayor Javellana, Commissioner Lazarow, and myself were invited to attend. I missed it because I was under the weather. Seeing the smiles of the beautiful faces that make up our community was very fulfilling.
On Sunday, there were various families that enjoyed the Family Fun Day at OB Johnson. Police Athletic League coordinated an awesome event that gave the community the opportunity to get together and enjoy a good time. Seeing smiles is what it is all about. I want you to know that as Mayor, I want look forward to bringing all together. Let’s keep moving forward and let’s keep looking for opportunities to create smiles.
Finally, are you looking for bargains and a way to support your local Police Athletic League? Please come on by the City Cultural Center this Saturday, February 16, from 8AM – 5 PM for the Inaugural P.A.L. Flea Market where we will have great items for sale and it’s for a great cause. I will be there and hope you could be there too.
I invite you to attend our upcoming City Commission Meetings. Our next City Commission meeting is on February 21, 2019 at 530PM. Stay engaged and stay tuned, we are making progress, innovation, and opportunity happen.
