Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Gimenez emphasized on Thursday that the county cannot afford to extend the Metrorail south and should instead upgrade the South Dade busway. 

Gimenez joined Sundial to discuss how the county should address traffic and improve mass-transit in South Dade. The Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization deferred a vote on the matter at a meeting last month after no clear agreement was reached.

With most precincts reporting, Gimenez secured 56 percent of the vote to Regalado’s 44 percent.

This month Miami-Dade County residents have the chance to voice their opinions on the county’s proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year. 

There are eight town halls that will take place in August throughout the county.

On Tuesday County Mayor Carlos Gimenez presented the budget to residents at the West Kendall Regional Library.

"I’m happy to report that Miami-Dade County has turned a corner and that better days are ahead because of the sacrifices that we made during some very difficult times and economic times that we had here in our county," said Gimenez.
