Second Contractor Outreach Meeting
Small business enterprise companies were guests March 12 at a special outreach meeting sponsored by Hunt/Moss LV, the construction manager of the Marlins stadium. More than 160 people were present to learn more about jobs coming up for the fast-track project during an afternoon session at Florida Memorial University. Sixty to 70 different bid packages will be offered to Miami-Dade County Community Small Business Enterprise (CSBE) companies interested in bidding on the project. The bids will go to contract in June, according the Bill Edwards of Hunt/Moss.

A live radio broadcast on Feb. 11 at a Calle Ocho restaurant in Miami attracted television crews, fans and citizens interested in a hearing more about the Marlins ballpark.
Talk show hosts Ninoska Perez-Castellon and Pedro Milian on Radio Mambi (710 AM) interviewed Rebecca Sosa, Miami-Dade County commissioner, and Juan Martinez of the Marlins.
Sosa expressed support for the ballpark and clarified the fact that funding will be taken from tourist dollars and not from the pocket of taxpayers. The event took place at La Palma Restaurant.
Members of the Marlins family were hosts for a community coffee hour on Feb. 4, 2009, at Versailles Bakery, 3501 SW 8th St., Miami.
