Consultants Collect Millions At Miami-Dade Airport

Two reports showed Miami-Dade has awarded millions in management contracts and architecture and engineering work.

Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez said he didn't have a chance to review the report as of late Friday, and he couldn't be reached Monday.

But Alvarez made a point of keeping a watchful eye on the county's consulting fees in his 2007 budget message.

Alvarez dared the county manager to cut down on hiring in areas such as architecture, engineering, construction and finance.

It "continues to be an issue of concern because I believe it is unnecessarily increasing our cost of doing business. As applicable, particularly in the capital construction arena, we need to focus on recruiting and retaining staff to build up in-house expertise and fill existing vacancies," Alvarez wrote.
