Doral Mayor Luigi Boria
Doral’s mayor has urged President Barack Obama to suspend deportations of Venezuelans with no criminal history.
Monday was the last day on the job for Doral City Manager Joe Carollo.
It was supposed to be a show of solidarity with the Venezuelan people on Thursday but as with all things at Doral City Hall, it came with a side dish of drama. Tempers were flaring and there was some yelling.
The City of Doral has a new vice mayor but there is no end in sight to the sparring between the city manager and the mayor which escalated at a council meeting Wednesday night.
The Doral City Council will meet Tuesday for the third time in as many weeks. Mayor Luigi Boria called the special meeting to discuss advertising for a new chief of staff.
Suspended Sweetwater Mayor Manuel Maroño and lobbyist Jorge Forte entered not guilty pleas in court Friday morning on a single charge of conspiring to commit honest services fraud.
Manny Maroño, the suspended mayor of Sweetwater, helped his friend and former business partner secure a spot as one of the preferred towing companies in Doral, a letter obtained by CBS4 and El Nuevo Herald confirms.
The mayor of Doral now says he made a mistake when he hired a city manager. Doral Mayor Luigi Boria said he wants to apologize to residents and ask the city council to correct the mistake by dismissing Joe Carollo according to CBS4 news partner, The Miami Herald.
Venezuelan opposition leader Henrique Capriles was honored Sunday morning in Doral.
