Beautiful historical City, which required harmonious designs while growing. Coral Gables is a City of standards, quality, and integrity. There existed no preference when reviewing proposed projects, the City architecture was valued with highest regards, regardless!

chances to learn new things daily and meet new people but the room for growth tends to be kinda slow paced seem as if though the company takes to much time or no time at all to consider position change
great opportunity to meet new people and learn new things

Parking Enforcement Specialist (Former Employee) – City of Coral Gables – October 21, 2014
This was such a great job and being in the sixties it paid well and meter maids were sort of popularized by the song. It just happened for me at the right time raising three children. The Gables is a City so there is quite a lot of land to traverse and over the years we had more responsibilities added to our jobs We no longer wrote meter tickets but anything that was in an area with signage. we drove golf carts, and they had no covers so we did not work in bad weather. andthey found other tasks for usbut in the summer we went to the local pool for lunch to eat and cool off! A dream job! Of course in the winter we froze so it balances out. We worked hard because that is the only job where they know where you are every minute by the time on your tickets and you carry a phone in case your boss has need of you. Other than the fact that you were out in the sun all day and we were not aware of the damage it was a great jobfor 13 years and then i decided to go to school and change direction.
It's a unique experience serving as a video liaison for an entire community that prides its self on appearance and the prestige of being The City of Coral Gables. You would never think it's a government channel.
