Ms. ROS-LEHTINEN. Mr. Speaker, I would like to take this opportunity to recognize Mr. Julio Avael, Key West City Manager for his significant contribution to the citizens of the city of Key West. As a tribute to his dedication, the Miami-Dade County Office of the Mayor and the Board of County Commissioners have designated Saturday, February 21, 2004, as Julio Avael Day.
During his 8-year tenure as Key West City Manager, Julio has demonstrated a profound commitment to our community. He has been especially instrumental in enhancing the government through implementation of historic preservation projects, neighborhood and park revitalization, and other citywide infrastructure improvements.
Julio's hard work has enabled him to become not only a dynamic city manager, but also an energetic member of the community.
