Pre-Budget Workshop this Monday

Budget

This coming Monday the Lauderhill City Commission will hold a workshop meeting. But this workshop is going to be a little different than most. Commissioners will be taking pre-budget requests from residents for the 2014-2015 fiscal year budget.

 

Last year only two residents (both from the same neighborhood) showed up to provide input. According to the Sun-Sentinel’s account one resident asked that the budget include security cameras at Westwind and Veterans Parks. Another requested that a dog park be funded. Although it is not clear if these items were included in last year’s budget, it is apparent that they have not yet come to fruition.


The workshop begins at 7:00 in the Commission Chamber at City Hall.

Thieves Target NW Lauderhill Cars

Automobile burglary is on the rise in Northwest Lauderhill according to the city police department. Officer Robert Marto addressed the Northwest Lauderhill Neighbors Association last night to update residents on crime in the area. He offered advice advice on how to avoid becoming a victim, such as not leaving valuables in your car or at least keeping them out of view. Additionally, keeping exterior home lights on may decrease the chances of a car break-in.

After Officer Marto’s presentation Century 21 Realtor Bruce Goldfarb spoke about real estate trends in the neighborhood. Mr. Goldfarb reported that home prices have stabilized and are increasing in value around 3% per year. The number of home for sale in the area is little less than average, and there is a decrease in foreclosures and short sales.
