Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

The more you know about the culture of corruption and incompetency in Hallandale Beach, the less this news surprises you: A week later, Hallandale Beach's elected officials and employees are still REFUSING to cooperate with the Broward Inspector General's Office in their probe of HB City Hall

City under investigation wants to look at agent's questions first! But that would be cheating, wouldn't it? Looking north on U.S.-1 at the the Hallandale Beach City Municipal complex, 400 S.

Hallandale Beach City Manager’s Office has refused to fully cooperate with the Broward Inspector General’s Office investigation into the city’s management of the Community Redevelopment district.

In the next few days I'll mention some of the people and groups whom I and many others in town believe are logical choices to come under renewed scrutiny of Broward Inspector General John W. Scott and his professional investigators for what has -and hasn't- happened with respect to this city's CRA funds which are supposed to be used to end "blight," not simply be "found money" for various people and groups in town with connections to Hallandale Beach City Hall and the people who run it.

CRA funds were not supposed to be the city's version of the lottery, yet that is precisely how it has been handled in the past for years.

As always, you're more than welcome to contribute your own suggestions for who ought to be sweating-out this IG investigation -and why- at: hallandalebeachblog-at-gmail-dot-com
