BROWARD COUNTY, FL – Broward County Mayor Mark Bogen will bring together the Mayors of all thirty-one cities for the newly created Mayor’s Council of Broward County.
“This is precedent setting. The Mayor’s Council of Broward County will unite all city leaders to address issues and solve problems together in the spirit of cooperation to better serve our 1.9 million residents,” said Mayor Bogen. The Council also has the support of the Broward League of Cities.
Mayor Bogen and the thirty-one city Mayors will meet on a quarterly basis with initial meetings scheduled for January 28th, 30th, and 31st.
“For several years, the cities and County have not always gotten along. In some cases, there have been lawsuits and tension. This coming year, we’ll meet face to face to set an agenda and discuss whatever issues are brought to the table. We’ll open up lines of communication and the result will be progress,” said Bogen.
The Mayor’s Council of Broward County is part of the Mayor Bogen’s overall theme this year to “get things done.” He’s incorporated a Triple A strategy that includes accountability of government, achievement on a countywide basis and award incentives for ideas that will lead to more efficient government.
