What is a G.O. BOND and why should you care?

May 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Advocate for Residents of Miami Beach
 We are a community-based 501(c)4 not-for-profit organization providing Miami Beach residents a cohesive voice for city-wide issues that impact our quality of life. Click here to join us!
 Commissioner Arriola will not be able to speak at this forum as originally planned. In his place, Mayor Dan Gelber will be joining the panel to speak and answer your questions.
We look forward to seeing you on May 8!
To G.O. or not to G.O
that is the question!
Actually, there are lots of questions.
  • What does G.O. stand for?
  • What IS a G.O. bond?
  • What does it do?
  • How does it work?
  • Why does it matter to me?
  • Why does it matter to the City?
  • What are the pros and cons?
Come with questions; leave with answers!
Join MBU and our distinguished panel as we discuss the General Obligation Bond under consideration by the City of Miami Beach.
This is a community event. All are welcome!
Tuesday, May 8 at 6 pm
Light bites and refreshments will be served.
