The City was incorporated in 1955. It is governed by a City Commission and run by a City Manager. Miramar has a Mayor, a Vice Mayor, three Commissioners, and a City Clerk. Lawsuits against the City are referred to as cases of “sovereign immunity” (any case against a city, county or the State is referred to as a sovereign immunity case). Sovereign immunity cases must be approved by the Miramar City Commission.
When the City was first incorporated, it had a population of less than two-hundred people. It’s original boundaries were Southwest 64 Avenue to the east, University Drive to the west, Miami-Dade County to the south, and Pembroke Road to the north. The only major roadways in the City at the time were U.S. 441 (which was a two-lane road then), Hallandale Beach Boulevard to Southwest 66 Terrace, and Pembroke Road (which was a dirt road) to University Drive. Accidents happen on all roadways in Miramar.

You should not have to pay exorbitant hospital bills if another’s negligent actions put you there in the first place. Your family should not have to lose out on wages because you cannot work. You should not have to pay for burial and funeral costs if another’s negligence leads to your loved one’s death.
What about accountability? It is important because the fastest way to get people and organizations to stop engaging in dangerous behaviors is to make them pay. To make them realize that cutting corners to save a few bucks is not worth the literal and figurative cost of causing harm. That is something that makes all South Florida families and communities safer.
