County allocates $300,000 to confront sea level rise

Mayor Gimenez bows to environmentalists, creates sea-level-rise position

Miami Herald 9/18/15

Last night, County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and commissioners listened. In a new¬†$6.8 billion budget that passed last night, they affirmed a plan very similar to the one local environmentalists suggested: $75,000 will pay the salary of the new resiliency officer with a $300,000 budget to tackle sea-level rise. That’s $200,000 less than environmentalists proposed.
