Doral Mayor Luigi Boria calls another special meeting


The Doral City Council will meet for the third straight week after Mayor Luigi Boria called another special meeting for 9 a.m. Wednesday.

The friction on the dais is likely to show again as Boria has captured headlines recently for publicly disagreeing with the rest of the council and City Manager Joe Carollo over Carollo’s performance. A majority of the council backs the manager.

In the wake of the resignation of Boria’s administrative aide on Monday amid political strife in the city, the mayor wants to talk about advertising for a chief of staff position. He also wants to discuss a partial interruption to Doral’s trolley service that occurred during the weekend due to some of the trolleys having expired passenger motor carrier licenses.

According to a report from the city’s public works department, the contractor who operates the trolleys is responsible for keeping licenses up to date, and county inspectors pointed out the error on Thursday. The contractor started working on it Friday and had restored partial service by that afternoon. By Tuesday, the city announced that two of three routes were running normally again and one route was on schedule with the use of two trolleys instead of one.
