Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez expected to announce job cuts
Miami-Dade County expected to cut about 700 jobs
Gimenez made several promises during his 2011 campaign including a 12 percent property tax cut, which has contributed to a deficit. Gimenez was set to reduce the special property tax and increase the library property tax.
While some fear the cuts will end up hurting residents, others believe some Miami-Dade County employees are overpaid and Gimenez needs to keep a better eye on mismanagement.
Earlier this year, Local 10 News reporter Ross Palombo reported tens of millions of dollars were dealt out to Miami-Dade County employees who were not working their assigned jobs. Gimenez had approved some of the expense.
Palombo also reported Miami-Dade County was using tax payers money to fund holiday season party videos that included the use of songs like "Gangnam Style" since 2010. The videos were meant to be a "team-building" exercise.
