Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett said Friday that county and local resources have been working to accommodate the displaced residents of the Champlain Towers South, and “there’s not any dissatisfaction” that he can detect with the process.
“I can tell you from firsthand experience that the families appreciate it and acknowledge it, and they do it over and over again in those meetings [with officials], so there’s not any dissatisfaction [that] I’ve been able to detect,” Burkett said.
“I’m looking for that because..I’ve got a very small role, but I make it a point to be where everybody is so that if there is a problem, I can bring it up to [Miami-Dade] County Mayor Cava, I can bring it up to Florida Gov. DeSantis, and I can make our senators aware, and that’s what I’ve been doing,” Burkett said.
“That’s been working because when there has been a glitch, it has been immediately addressed,” he said.
“Our resources, our county resources, our local resources all the municipalities that are joining together, it’s like a chorus, and it’s just playing beautifully,” Burkett said.
