Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine Tries to explain how he screwed up.
Dear Friends and Neighbors,
In case you missed it, check out This Week In South Florida where I highlighted the status of the city’s stormwater infrastructure plan and discussed the important steps Miami Beach is taking to better prepare for unanticipated, severe storms like we saw last week. As our rainy season continues, residents and businesses should also make sure they have a plan in place to prevent flooding on their properties. If your business is in a low lying area and prone to flooding, make sure your flood panels are properly installed.
To date, we have completed 15 percent of the stormwater infrastructure upgrades. The City is also moving forward with replacing the current temporary generators with permanent generators to prevent power outages from impacting our flood mitigation efforts. Nothing is 100 percent effective, but doing nothing is 100 percent ineffective. The city will continue to invest in mitigation to combat tidal and storm flooding.
