Last week: Last week, SB 710 was filed requiring that the entire envelope of certain buildings being constructed or rebuilt be impact resistant and constructed with high wind-resistant construction materials. While this is second nature to those of us in South Florida, it could bear significant cost for other areas of the State. This is a great reminder that while the Florida Legislature won’t start session until January, it is truly during the Committee Weeks that the real activity gets started.
Looking ahead: With the 2020 Census just around the corner, the Census Bureau is looking to hire between eleven and twelve thousand Broward County residents to work as Census enumerators beginning in January. In addition to competitive wages, weekly paychecks, and flexible hours, you can help shape your community’s future and ensure that Broward has the resources it needs for schools, roads, housing, hospitals, healthcare, and more. Did I mention it impacts our representation in Congress? For more information or to fill out an application, visit https://2020census.gov/en/jobs.htmlor call 1-800-JOB-2020.
