Commissioner Tries to Delay Park Buy

Metro Commissioner Larry Hawkins wants to block the purchase of a South Dade trailer park that is  a key part of a permanent housing plan for farmworkers in South Dade. The housing plan developed  by the Everglades Community Association was unanimously approved three months ago by the  Metro-Dade Commission. It hinges on the county buying land to temporarily house about 1,500 farmworkers in trailers while permanent homes are built southwest of Florida City.
