Why We're Doing This
The City of Coral Gables is not seeking preferential treatment.
The City is raising legitimate concerns that are common to other communities as well. We're doing what we can to protect our residents from the heat, to keep the rights of way open from power lines so the City can do its work, and to hold FPL to the level of preparation and service the City has a right to expect under its franchise agreement.
That is the City of Coral Gables' fundamental duty to its residents whether the underlying issues are occurring statewide or only in Coral Gables. That is why the resolution and letter were issued, and why the City continues to stand by them.
