Under Citizens’ Participation or Public Comments, local citizen Jay Calan spoke
to Commissioner Earls about the maintenance of the last original strip of Route 66, located in Highway District 3.

District 3 is careful to maintain the integrity of the road by using only screenings to fill gaps and cracks.
Calan also informed the Board that a City of Miami Code Enforcement Officer
