With the referendum election to decide the future of Sun Life Stadium less than three weeks away, Miami Dolphins CEO Mike Dee opened the 26-year-old facility to reporters and cameras for a behind the scenes tour Friday.
The Miami Dolphins delivered a check for more than $4 million last Friday to kick off the push for a special election to approve a tax for renovating Sun Life Stadium. Voters who want to be a part of that decision do face an important deadline Monday.
The ink is still drying on the agreement between Miami-Dade County and the Miami Dolphins to send a stadium renovation deal to the voters, but if you want to have a chance to vote in the special election, you have precious little time to make sure you’re registered to vote.
The 11th hour deal between the Miami Dolphins and Miami Dade-County will go to the voters, but the referendum will be on a very condensed schedule.
The battle over renovations to Sun Life Stadium and how to pay for it took center stage in Tallahassee Wednesday. The House Economic Affairs Committee approved legislation to allow the modernization plans to move closer to a full House vote.
Time is growing perilously short for the Miami Dolphins and the South Florida Super Bowl Committee to put together a public referendum vote on whether or not to contribute public money to the renovation of Sun Life Stadium.
The Palm Beach County Commission approved holding a November 2012 referendum about allowing slot machines in the county.
Hollywood voters will go to the polls September 13th to decide whether to pass a referendum that will reform police, firefighter and city employee’s pensions.
The same day that Hollywood failed to meet its deadline to cancel a special election to reform employee pension benefits without incurring more costs, the police and fire union presidents said they are ready to campaign against the referendum.
As city employees shouted in anger, the Hollywood city commission unanimously passed three ordinances freezing pension plans for city employees and setting up new plans with potentially lower future payoffs. They also set a September referendum to take the changes to the voters unless they can work out a deal with employees first.
