As Hallandale Beach's first directly elected mayor I welcome you to our city's web site.  When I was elected to the commission in 1999, one of my goals was to create an effective and efficient "E" government.  Our new web site is the culmination of the hard work of our staff and business partners. With your input we have produced a user friendly site to serve all our residents.  I hope you find this service invaluable to access all our departments and programs. Please contact me with any further information you may need anytime. You can also visit my site at
