Miami Lakes, FL –At the May Regular Town Council meeting the Miami Lakes Town Council voted to ease COVID-19 restrictions as cases continue to recede and people receive vaccinations.
Town Council, Planning & Zoning, Special Master Hearings, and Committee meetings will resume to full capacity inside Council Chambers starting in June. Members of the public attending these public meetings are encouraged to wear a mask but will not be required to do so. Physical quorum will be required for all committee meetings, the meetings will continue to be live-streamed on the Town’s website and social media outlets.
For now, to keep town staff safe during routine business visits at Town Hall and other Town facilities, facial coverings are required during interaction with town staff. However, in light of the most recent CDC guidance allowing vaccinated individuals to not wear a facial covering indoors, this policy may be updated next week.
Facility rentals at Roberto Alonso Community Center, Youth Center, and outdoor pavilions have resumed to full capacity. Facial coverings and masks will not be required for private activities or parties.
To help Miami Lakes restaurants following the COVID-19 restrictions, the Town of Miami Lakes created the Restaurant Recovery Program, which allowed restaurants to temporarily add or expand existing outdoor seating areas, in order to reach 100% of their pre-COVID allowed capacity. The Town Council will consider an ordinance on June 8, 2021, during the Regular Town Council meeting to address the regulations created by the Restaurant Recovery Program.
