About Us

Miami-Dade County covers an area of more than 2,000 square miles, an area larger than Rhode Island. There are 34 municipalities, each with their own government providing city services like police and zoning. More than one million residents live in the unincorporated area outside municipal boundaries.

Our Miami-Dade County government provides municipal services, such as police and fire rescue to the residents of the unincorporated area and metropolitan services, like emergency management, airport and seaport operations, and public housing to all residents. Some of the municipalities contract with the County for services, like police, fire rescue or waste collection in their area.

The Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners is the governing body of unincorporated Miami-Dade County, and has broad, regional powers to establish policies for services that transcend city boundaries. Its 13 members are elected from single districts to four-year terms.

Miami-Dade’s Mayor oversees the day-to-day operations of Miami-Dade County and has the power to veto Commission action items.

The Property Appraiser is charged with determining the value of all property within the County for tax purposes, maintaining related records and granting exemptions.

The Miami-Dade County Clerk serves as the County Recorder, custodian of all records filed with the Court, and as Clerk of the Board.

A wide array of services are available online to make payments, search maps, or report a problem. For more information or to request a service you can also contact 311.
