FF Hernandez had been working at an electronics shop near the World Trade Center on Sept. 11. He told the media in a recent interview that he went to the site and volunteered there for three months. He was later diagnosed with chronic respiratory conditions linked to exposure to ground zero. In the years since, FF Hernandez emerged as a leader for immigrants who fell ill after cleaning buildings around the trade center site. RIP.
“I am very proud of the work of the council in approving this balanced budget,” Hernández said. “Most importantly, taxes are not raised for the residents of the great city of Hialeah.”
=An additional 70 firefighters will be dismissed — half on Dec. 1 and the other half on March 1. Taken together, the layoffs amount to 39 percent of the department.
The president of the Hialeah fire union, Mario Pico, said the budget was “plagued by inconsistencies” and put together without the transparency that".
HOWEVER-it should be noted that Firefighter Luis Simon, who was dismissed and rehired in May along with 15 others after an arbitrator’s ruling, said it cost the city $800,000 “to dismiss people last December.” So who knows what will happen next.
