URGENT! Town of Surfside: subsidizing developers and raising taxes on residents


Physicians take an oath to do no harm. In the Surfside twist, It's called how to cover your ass! A public employee specialty? The Administration of Weinberg/Burkett and every Administration since then have "allegedly" taken a secret oath to conquer the Town of Surfside by deception and destruction of Lost Files

Two of the most corrupt people to govern in the history of Surfside 
Howard S. Weinberg and Daniel Dietch

Surfside was a beautiful, peaceful community until ICT and people such as Martin Wiescholek, Marion Ott , Howard Weinberg, Charles Burkett, Ruben Coto, Mark Blumstein, Mark aka Marc Imberman, Steve Levine, Elizabeth Calderon and the foreign influence of the Jay Senter gang corrupted the political scene in 2006. Ever since, Surfside's zoning code has been sold out.  Surfside budget has been sold out.  Surfside's historic properties have been sold out.  Surfside taxpayers have been sold out.  There has been a mass sale event at town hall with secret meetings, records being destroyed, unexplained payments being made, and a massive shift from public interest to special interest priorities.  Surfside's entire direction has changed drastically, and in the opinion of most residents, for the worse.  Will enough residents arise to stand up to save the town, in time? That is the question of the day in town history of 2014-2015. 

The greed based forces of overdevelopment are walking in lockstep towards disabling all local protections against more and more massive overdevelopment.

"The town's request for a 6 month moratorium from the Dade historical board failed...... Will be interesting how this will hold things up or perhaps there will be some building fires?"

Its all about interests.
Surfside town officials blatantly act in their own best interests while ignoring the public interest and bending over backwards for special interests.
Surfside taxpayers are subsidizing the massive overdevelopment that has paid its way into town.  Have you noticed that laws are being ignored, special treatment is available for sale, and that there are more police officers protecting construction sites for developers than there are police officers patrolling and protecting the residential neighborhood? Have no fear, the corrupt administration has the most proficient police department they could find.

And the award for the Most Incompetent Police Department in South Florida by Randomplics. With that in mind it's natural to pick a new manager from that department Look who is going to be the Interim Town Manager....again!  Decenso is an old retread from the Weinberg-Burkett gangs, who does what the administration wants him to do.

UPDATE: Decenso didn't last long at all. Was Guillermo Olmedillo  hired to clean up the mess left by Roger C? Our new town manager, previously with developer Swerdlow.....mega developers in Boca, Biscayne landings, controversial land dealings in Pompano, etc.  is a consultant to Bal  Harbour, and has past ties with Weiss Serota and Miami-Dade county.   "Surfside will soon be Bal Harbour,  tourist class."

Another developers' agent placed into position in Surfside Town Hall. Special interests dominate and control the entire Town Commission

No wonder the burglary rate in the residential area has skyrocketed, no wonder the police reports are no longer provided to local media. Man steals 2 Rolex watches from Surfside shop Oct 30 2014
There is an invisible fly on the wall in Town Hall that transmits information.
. We hear of a great desire to create a public relations campaign to counter the major loss of the initiative in the November 4th, 2014 election. And we just learned that more files are missing from the first floor of that Mysterious Town Hall.

Their pace and arrogance reveals the aggressive move to sell out this community and others too, as to them, nothing matters but the sound of money moving. The undertow of greed and corruption in Surfside and in Miami-Dade County is rearing its head once again. Just watch these videos and.decide for yourself.....How did we get to this obscenely corrupt government?.

Land owners, developers and insiders continue to thumb their noses at any supposed enforcement effort; code enforcement has told neighbors that it doesn't matter what they do or don't do, the offenders do whatever they want to and how have they been able to influence the U.S. Government as well?

Miami-Dade Commissioner Sally Heyman is in opposition to residents of Surfside wishes on Historic Preservation.

This is what Surfside policies were like before the corruption wave rolled in

Where or Where does one go to find an Honest Manager these days? HAH! With the exception a REAL PROFFESSIONAL MANAGER WHO WAS NOT A POLITICAL HACK Manager Michael Crotty, resigned after serving for less than a year with this corrupt gang... Surfside hasn't had honest management in ten years.

"As far as mediocrity....I like the manager....nice like able guy....honest but overwhelmed from day one. Like it or not the town is playing in the big leagues these days and needs a manager who can not only handle the demands, deal with DD and the Buttheads, but also get out there and make surprise visits to each department and walk the streets and see it from a residents point of view.....the cops lounging under the trees, the code enforcement issues, the 10 to 1 ratio of employees at the CC....ETC ETC.
I don't see it as a big deal...Lee Iacocca was always on the factory floor and Sergio Marcionne turned Fiat/Chrysler around the second time with the same approach. My humble opinion but what the hell do I know?!" Quote from Distinguished Surfside Resident.

Town Hall Surfside today is all about the personal ambition of town officials and administrators. A pool of deception and corrupted processes, people and objectives. Surfside FL should be a target of all federal probes. Conspiracy complicity coverup - the worst example of fake and dictated city government in America.

What can they do, punt? Professional Managers will not touch the job with a ten foot pole. So, who's left? We hear that a former Burkett recommended police officer is about to take the job. We'll let you know shortly.

Developer donates $500K to Church before vote.....Remember the Grand Beach Hotel Bribe in Surfside?....What good is an Ethics department when the head of it is an attorney friend of the person or entity being charged with the violation? Watch how they defend taking bribes from developers.....They never did locate that elusive fly in the Town building.

Surfside town officials have been engaged in unethical conspiracies with developers and special interests for the last eight years. They have changed zoning laws, ignored zoning laws, disregarded laws about citizens' right to vote in referendums on major issues, and forged their own charter changes onto deceptively worded ballots like the one in November 2014. All of the efforts of town officials are focused and targeted upon maximizing profits for outside special interests. A huge flow of cash has been raging through this town for several years now, enriching selected recipients who cashed in on construction projects, dense hotel projects, and massive increases in the town's congestion and density. Town officials should all be replaced since they serve themselves, their twisted priorities, and profiteers and turn their backs on town residents. These very same town officials refuse to set term limits and instead try to convince uninformed voters to allow for longer terms and staggered terms, so that change can never come, so that accountability can never happen. Here is the latest disclosure on how town officials are stabbing town residents in the back:

The dispute is helping expose the new real estate boom’s dark side — a controversial tactic that cash-rich investors are adopting across Florida as they seek properties to redevelop." Miami-Herald 10/18/2014.

Fort Capital affiliate merges with The Surf Club for $116M

Ethics charges should be brought against all town elected officials and employed officials and administrators who conspired to produce a fraudulent demolition order as a means of greasing the wheels for special interests.  Where is the Dade County Ethics Commission now?  The Florida Ethics Commission?  The State Attorney?  Why are Surfside town officials allowed to abuse the town's laws, the town budget, the town's contracts, and the town's honor?

The Surfside Town Administration, misled by mayor Dietch and long time self-server Eli Tourgeman, constantly lie to the people of Surfside.  Now they say they are lowering taxes.  Yeah sure just like they improved the zoning code, eh? Who do you trust the least in these photos?

Joe Graubart could always be trusted to work for the residents of Surfside.

From the Internet: The Miami Herald
Sep 18, 2014 ·" Surfside commissioners tentatively agreed last week to cut the town’s property-tax rate." PURE BULL CRAP!

They consistently pull off scams to deprive the people of the town of their money and their quality of life. They have totally sold out the zoning code, and they have jacked up taxes, fees, and they now take more money that ever from the residents.  This year the town's total tax take was $6,063.578 and next year it is going to be $6,723,551.  Although the mayor and town officials told the Miami Herald they were lowering taxes and got a false article published, the State of Florida required the Town to put the following notice in the paper that in actuality town taxes are going UP, not down.

In addition, Surfside's charges to residents for water, sewer, and garbage have SOARED to the highest levels in history while the level of services has dropped significantly from what it used to be.  We are paying much more, and getting less.  That is the way Surfside works today.  Take from the residents, give to developers. And next, they want us to pay for parking garages so developers can build more units instead of any parking spaces!  An insane way to run a local government, corrupt to its core

Read what your friends and neighbors say about the CORRUPTION IN SURFSIDE, FLORIDA. They remain anonymous because of retribution fears from the LYING Administration of Daniel Dietch and Eli Tourgeman that transformed once Beautiful Surfside, Florida into this hell-hole of corruption.

The drainage project (where they are digging up Biscaya Drive for the third time in a year and will repave the road again when done) is the town's usual snail paced, high priced, filthy and corrupt mess. While the taxpayers pay and pay and pay, the workers rarely show up. When they do, they eat and drink and throw their trash into piles right in the roadway and leave it there when they leave. The photos speak for themselves, and do the massive town checks that keep going to consultants, engineers, contractors, and buddies of town officials.

Bigger, longer, wider, more dense buildings. Larger lots. More lot coverage. Ever expanding concrete masses. Bad for flood capacity. Bad for drainage. Bad for storm protection. Bad for flood insurance rates. This town is dooming itself in so many ways and all just to bend over backwards for development maximizers seeking to profit and run. Tax and fee increases here are going to be endless as we pay for their frauds and cons and thefts.  Anonymous 9/18/14

A time dishonored feature of corrupt government. Putting public property into the sloth of dirty deals disguised as businesses. Letting nature's sands be used for exploitation and to gather the wealth to fund kickbacks to town officials. Anonymous 9/15/14

Smoke signals from the dark minds of corrupt town officials reveal one of their next town sell-outs, they are planning more exploitation for the sands of Surfside - they want to bring in beach concessions - vendors selling products and services - on the public beach.  Anonymous
