Commissioner Lamar Fisher Update Us on County Issues

Our County Commissioner, Lamar Fisher, provides a comprehensive update on Broward County issues in his latest newsletter.  The Broward Heart Project is an initiative funded by the Broward County Commission that encourages Broward residents to see if they are eligible for this free non-invasive test. Some prerequisites include being 45 to 70 years old with active health insurance, a family history of heart disease or have been diagnosed with high blood pressure and/or high cholesterol.

 Broward County’s Transit Department has partnered with the Human Services Department, Housing Options, Solutions, and Supports Division (HOSS-D) to address the issues of unsheltered people at bus terminals, bus stops and on certain routes. The Broward County Aviation Division received a $50 million grant to fund a portion of FLL’s Terminal Connectors project, which consists of the construction of enclosed post-security walkways between Terminals 1 and 2 and Terminals 2 and 3.
