City of North Miami Announces Stunning Financial Turnaround

Published

For the first time in six years, the City of North Miami (NoMi) has reported a budget surplus, due in large part to City Manager, Theresa Therilus, who joined the City in 2020. Under Therilus’ guidance, NoMi has accelerated the turnaround of the General Fund deficit by making difficult decisions to reduce costs and expenditures, while maintaining a consistent level of service to the community.  

To create radical financial transformation, Therilus established a balanced budget and successfully generated more revenue than expenditures, resulting in a positive year-end balance. Additionally, the fund balance was improved through preventative measures that successfully mitigated a larger deficit during the pandemic’s peak in addition to the receipt of American Rescue Plan Act funding to cover the prior year’s deficit resulting from loss of revenues.

In fiscal year 2020, NoMi’s budget expenditures were nearly $67 million. After Therilus implemented her budget reforms, the City’s budget came in at $57.6 million, an over 15% drop in expenditures.

“I am thankful for the support and focus of the Mayor and Council during this process,” said Therilus. “If it were not for them and the dedicated staff of the City of North Miami, the fiscal turnaround would not have been possible”, Therilus continued. “In July of 2020 when I arrived, the City was $14 million in the red. Now, I am proud to report we are in the black for the first time in six years, with almost $4 million in budget surplus.”

Correcting the City’s unsustainable budget required cutting over $9 million in expenditures, which Therilus accomplished while continuing to provide crucial social services to residents, such as mortgage and rental assistance and much needed financial support for NoMi’s small business during the devastating global pandemic. Despite these gains, the road forward will not be easy; in particular the challenge of dealing with expenses that have historically outpaced revenues.

“The City Manager has done a great job getting us out of this massive deficit,” said Mayor Philippe Bien-Aime. “We’ve been working hard to get on a path to fiscal stability, and now thanks to some difficult conversations and decisions, we are on the way there and the City can successfully move forward.”

Polk County detectives search for woman that threw tantrum at McDonald’s in Lakeland

LAKELAND, Fla. (WSVN) – Polk County Sheriff’s Office detectives are searching for a 22-year-old woman who threw a tantrum at a McDonald’s.

The incident took place at 2606 US 92 East at around 5:34 p.m, Thursday.

Tianis Jones became enraged when her order at the drive-thru was taking too long. That’s when she stormed into the McDonald’s and started to complain at the front counter.

Jones became impatient and started to become violent by hitting a small plastic sign in the direction of the employees. She then started to throw several bottles, and at one point walked behind the counter to throw cups at the employees.

A relative tried to calm Jones down.

Employees at the eatery told Jones multiple times to leave.

Ignoring the commands of the employees, Jones then called 911 on her cell phone and told the operator, “I’m five-months pregnant, these people don’t know how to run a [expletive] McDonald’s!” 

The entire incident lasted roughly 10 minutes before her relative and another woman convinced her to leave.

Before leaving the McDonald’s, Jones lifted up her shirt and exposed her belly at the employees and began twerking at them.

“I don’t know why this woman got as angry as she was, but as the saying goes, ‘She’s a few fries short of a Happy Meal,’” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “Her actions were outrageous, especially for a place where small children often visit, and she caused about $100 in damages since the items she threw on the floor can’t be used for customers. She better not complain about the food we serve her at the county jail.”

Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Jones with charges for burglary with assault, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct.

If anyone has any information regarding the whereabouts of Jones, you are urged to call the PCSO at 863-298-6200 or Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477).
