Wasting your tax dollars
Now that the pefectly good Coconut Grove Expo Center is being demolished, the City of Miami is offering a developer $10 million to build and operate a tv and movie studio somewhere else in the City of Miami. Property taxes are being used to fund the project. Your property taxes.
While the Expo Center was perfect for tv and movie productions (Burn Notice, Marley and Me, etc.), it is being demolished in the name of a park, to sit in the center of the other umpteen parks we have in Coconut Grove.
I thought the City was broke. We cannot afford police officers, but we can afford to demolish a perfectly good and working studio to pay someone to build another studio?
