 Message From The Commissioner

Dear Neighbors,

It’s September and school is back in session. There’s a lot to look forward to in October, including a welcome respite from summer’s heat and daily rains!

October marks a very special milestone for Broward County, as we launch a countywide celebration of our 100th birthday, Broward 100: Celebrating the Art of Community. It’s going to be a yearlong celebration that will use our arts, sports and recreation venues, natural attractions and incredible diversity to creatively bridge, bond and build our communities. The celebration will be steeped in historical perspective, but more importantly, will look forward to Broward’s bright future. The celebration will culminate in a grand finale event October 2-4, 2015. For more information on how you can participate, visit

Remember too, that September and October are peak months for hurricane season. While we hope for a quiet season, every resident and business should have a preparedness plan in place. A wealth of information including checklists and shopping guides exists on

Our 2015 budget process concludes in September and our new fiscal year begins on October 1. I hope you take advantage of the opportunity every resident has to participate in this important process. I listen to your concerns and am here to help.

Lois Wexler
Broward County Commissioner, District 5
