The Miami-Dade County League of Cities announced recently that City of Homestead Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado has been appointed to serve in the Miami-Dade County League of Cities (MDCLC) County Budget Committee. The Miami-Dade County League of Cities was established in 1953 to unite the different municipalities within Miami-Dade County. As part of League’s commitment, specific committees were formed so that elected officials from different areas could work together on important issues that affect the residents and business community within their respective cities, towns, or villages. In total, there are three committees, Budget, Legislative, and Energy-Environment and Natural Resources.
“It is an honor to have been appointed to serve in a committee that will represent the interest of our residents,” said Councilman Maldonado. “I will work diligently along with the other committee members hard to make sure the County budget meets the needs of the residents we represent.”
The County budget review committee has the duty of reviewing the budgets and proposed budgets of Miami-Dade County to find out their impact on member municipalities and their constituents. Once they complete their findings, the committee will then make reports and recommendations to the MDCLC Board of Directors.
Councilman Maldonado was raised in Homestead since the age of 5. From playing little league baseball, to surviving Hurricane Andrew, the council member has attributed many of his experiences to our city. He graduated from Florida Computer and Business College in 1998 and, in 2007, opened Laptop Zone, a full-service computer technology company, located in Homestead.
