MIAMI GARDENS ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER NAMED

Former Tallahasee lobbyist Renee Farmer is the new assistant city manager in Miami Gardens.

Last week, City Manager Danny Crew appointed Farmer, 28, as his newest assistant city manager, joining the current team of Horace McHugh and Christoper Steers. And she says she's thrilled about building on the two-year-old-plus city.

As part of her portfolio, Farmer will help oversee municipal departments such as police and public safety, parks and recreation, and the city's future housing program, replacing William Green who left in the spring to work as a consultant in real estate development, Crew said.

Some key projects for farmer will include a HUD plan and a study of the police department, whose interlocal, three-year contract will expire in December 2007.
