Miami Lakes, FL -The Town and Council, led by Mayor Manny Cid has continued to fight for the past three years the United States Postal Service for a ZIP Code that is unique to Miami Lakes. Most recently, Congressmen Jason Chaffetz sponsored the Postal Service Act of 2016; a bipartisan bill that includes a provision specifically stating that the Town of Miami Lakes should receive an independent Zip Code no later than September 2017. On November 30th, the US House of Representatives passed the bill; the bill now heads to the US Senate.
"Thanks to Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, who worked hard to ensure our voices were heard in Washington D.C.", stated Mayor Manny Cid. “An independent Miami Lakes Zip Code will help reduce our residents’ auto insurance premiums, assist with economic development, and the branding of our beautiful Town."
