VG just lowered their millage rate. They have an outstanding police department, public works department, recreation department, beautification and planning and zoning boards. Of course this is in addition to a great Mayor and council.

Remember when the previous city manager used city funding to counter a political claim in the middle of an election? Sure, the ethics community wasn-t happy, but the end result was favorable for the CM at the time. Don-t tell me one hand doesn-t wash the other.

Hialeah Corruption

Why are you giving Raul Martinez a p ?   This SOB made Milander look like a preacher      The only reason he got his conviction overturned was that his wife-s sister Lula was Janet Reno-s chief of staff as US Attorney and the Democratic machine went to work to get him off.      The beauty is that he continues to get richer.

MIAMI SPRINGS CORRUPTION

29. Miami Springs: You would hope a cop might try to build a case against a man he-s told is a cocaine dealer. Miami Springs Police Sgt. Andres Quintanilla did just the opposite: He tried to join him. Instead of getting rich pumping coke onto the streets, Quintanilla was busted on a federal corruption charge. The 2015 case, in which the disgraced officer was convicted and sentenced to nine years behind bars, was the most recent shadiness to come from the city initially called Country Club Estates. But in the not-so-distant past, the 13,000-person community with Pueblo-style architecture saw its share of scandal. Take former Mayor Zavier Garcia. In 2011, it was revealed that he spent $19,000 from his campaign coffers on services from DRC Consulting, a company he happened to work for. The spending caught the attention of the public corruption unit at the state attorney-s office, which five years earlier had investigated the then-council member for the petty move of removing an enemy-s campaign signs. Garcia was let off the hook both times and reelected. He held the mayor-s office until just last year.

HIALEAH GARDENS CORRUPTION

16. Hialeah Gardens: These days, tiny Hialeah Gardens rarely makes the news. It was a different story in the late -90s and early 2000s, when the city of about 20,000 was rocked by a made-for-the-tabloids saga. Two city employees ó an  istant to the mayor and a parks and rec staffer ó accused Mayor Gilda Oliveros of ordering them to murder her husband. When they refused, Oliveras taunted and har ed them with   slurs and challenges to their masculinity. The trial of one of America-s first Latina mayors was a closely followed public airing of salacious municipal gossip, including allegations of affairs between elected officials, forced participation in Santeria rituals, and widespread corruption. Oliveras, branded with the sexist moniker of "Miniskirt Mayor," was found guilty in the murder-for-hire plot in 2000, but the conviction was overturned three years later. Since then, the mayor and her city have both faded back into obscurity.

HIALEAH CORRUPTION

6. Hialeah: Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez once got caught loan-sharking. He also got caught in 2015 publicly lying about loaning cash to a convicted Ponzi-scheming jeweler ó and responded by paying his $4,000 ethics fine in 145 boxes of pennies and nickels. Then there was the time he disappeared for a week and claimed he was in Las Vegas, but no one in the city could explain where he actually went. Truth is, Hialeah has always been a mini-banana republic operating on U.S. soil. Back in 1991, then-Mayor Raul Martinez was convicted on extortion and racketeering charges after he got caught taking $1 million in cash from land developers (though he never served any time after the case was tossed on a technicality). Hernandez, meanwhile, is a monument to what you can accomplish with a broken system of checks and balances and a whole lot of gumption. He even convinced the city to buy him a $44,000 Jaguar luxury SUV last year for no apparent reason. At this rate, he-ll be president one day.

CORRUPT OPA-LOCKA

1. Opa-locka: Opa-locka is so crooked its own residents tried to wipe it off the map. Last August, a few local activists were so tired of fighting graft that they actually started a petition to dissolve the town. "Once you-re tapped out, you-re tapped out," said Willis Howard, one of the locals who mounted the charge. "The city revenues are tapped out, there-s no leadership, and in this case, you can-t even file bankruptcy to restructure your  ets, because there-s nothing for you to restructure." How did the Moorish-themed town get here? Here-s the tl;dr version: a federal graft probe starting as early as 2013; a city government that decided not to keep any real spending records; officials who thought taxpayer money could be spent on lavish birthday parties and huge holiday bonuses; elected officials convicted of using their employees to extort local businesses; a city commissioner who killed himself while facing bribery charges; and a morning FBI raid on city hall in 2016. Merrett Stierheim, the former county manager brought in to "clean up" the place, quit in March 2017 and said it was the "worst case" he-d seen in his long career. He said he left with "more questions than answers" about how the city became such a miserable failure.

Look no further than the Kobiakov Garcia connection. Kobiakov was tight with the Garcia clan. He gets a sweetheart deal and takes all the revenue and then underpays the city leaving the tax payer with the bill. Kobiakov made the money. Now, he-ll bankrupt Amber 18 and the city will get nada, zilch, nothing. It-s disgusting to see.

Sosa

The city DID receive grant money for the pool, but it is a lot easier to get grants for seniors than for a recreational facility. Had you attended council meetings or been involved with the process you would have known this. Let-s not forget the $15,000,000 Olympic-size pool venue in Doral that will be opening in the next few years which Springs was told by the aquatic club they would be moving to no matter what Miami Springs built. Before Miami Springs spends a penny of its own money it always looks for alternate funding sources prior to and during any given project. Have a nice day.
Report Abuse (beta)





sosa

the city received a million dollar check from SOSA for the senior center. Why couldn-t we have received money from the county or state for the pool and made the pool a full sized competition pool with 8 lanes? Our representatives failed us in not seeking the kind of funding necessary to build the pool the right way. Now, we-re stuck with the half-way right pool and zero aquatic sports for years to come or decades to come. I-m glad the city got money for the senior center, but it proves once again how badly they botched the pool.

It is true that he has an arrest record. It is true that he was once evicted from an apartment. It is true that he has no real visible means of support. It is true that he has raised 10s of thousands of campaign dollars from mostly outside special interests. It is true that he has expressed an interest in developing the golf course. It is true that he has called residents liars in a public forum. It is true that he refused to listen to many residents on the pool design. It is true that the voters always fall for his obnoxious repeated mailed campaugn brochures and glad handing and have always elected him despite his lack of character and honesty. It is true that they probably will again if he runs. Truth.

I can-t say that. Most Miami Springs voters are just too busy with life. That-s why the photo opp and birthday card political bs works so well. When it-s time to vote, they say, oh yeah, I know that guy. Some voters do pay attention and either sit out the vote if they don-t like either candidate or pick the best one after a thorough review. Garcia is all about himself. we know that, but I don-t have a problem with people who vote for him considering the situation. It also depends who runs against him. Suco had a fighting chance.

Council people like to see their names on new buildings etc. They like to pat themselves on the back when a large project is completed. It just goes to show how out of touch they are.

Monday morning quarterback? That-s a laugh. Do something about it? Another pathetic attempt to defend an inept an incompetent city council and management. A resident had the guts to get up and make sure the city was aware of the multi million dollar judgement against the bidder before the CC award was given anyway. Going back. Many, many people got up and pleaded with the council to consider a real, official sized pool that would have provided so much more for so little for generations to come. The council refused. Going back even farther many people advocated for a vote of the people on the 5 million dollar Community Center because of the stupidity of the design that provided such a ridiculously small work out area, no lockers etc. The city refused because they know best. So stuff the Monday morning quarterback BS. The council has long been an arrogant know it all bunch who refuse to truly listen to the people. They are now being proven as stupid and incompetent. That is all on them. And on you cheerleaders that pathetically defend every inept decision.

Country Club, Inept City Management

So Kobiakov is throwing in the towel. According to the article in the Gazette, the city deemed this operator the most responsible bidder of among the 6 that were judged reasonable when they awarded him the contract. The city decided he was the most responsible bidder despite a local resident going on record and providing do ents about Kobiakov having a 7 million dollar judgement against him. The city decided he was the most responsible bidder despite his pie in the sky bid being almost 1 million dollars over 5 years. About half for rent and half for improvements. Yep that was very responsible and many of us saw the fiasco coming a mile away. Many times a governmental agency will award to insiders or a pre-select bidder a contract based on an unreasonable bid because they want that particular bidder to win. Then after the insider gets the bid they go back and re-negotiate the terms of the contract. Wink wink. The city did just that, allowing the operator to lower his rent payments until he reneged even on that. Now I don-t have proof of that happening here. But there is proof aplenty that this was once again an inept and irresponsible job by the city.

Beautiful Miami Springs is a quiet residential community located in the heart of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Literally, just minutes away from anything in Miami, it's a slow paced oasis within the larger hustle and bustle of greater Miami.

Miami Springs was founded in 1926 by Glenn Curtiss, also known as the "Father of Naval Aviation." Miami Springs is a middle to upper middle class neighborhood with a mix of blue collar and white collar workers. At the core of Miami Springs is a championship style 18 hole golf course that has hosted hundreds of tournaments and celebrities alike.

Miami Springs has a mix of homes ranging from modest to luxury. Most of the larger, luxury style homes can be found along the beautiful golf course.

Miami Springs has a row of hotels along NW 36 Street, adjacent to Miami International Airport. The proximity to the airport and the 10 - 15 minute distance to the Port of Miami Cruise Ships and South Beach makes Miami Springs a popular hotel destination for tourists from all across the globe.

MiamiSprings.com was created in 1997 by local businessman and Miami Springs resident, Nestor Suarez. Nestor loved the city he grew up in and created the first website dedicated to the Miami Springs and Virginia Gardens area. To this day, Mr. Suarez still operates the website providing local news, events, updates, and photos. The website also has a popular (and sometimes controversial) political forum where anyone can discuss current local issues, politics, ideas.
