The Sunny Isles Beach Government Center, situated in a pedestrian-friendly area at the heart of the City, opened in January 2005.
Within the 54,000-square foot edifice is the Commission Chamber surrounded by a civic plaza, combining landscape, water, and contrasting building materials. The inner-operations of the City are conducted in this building, and meetings are generally held the third Thursday of each month.
Housed inside this vision you will find a satellite branch of the United States Post Office open Monday-Friday, brought through a partnership with the Federal Government, and the MDC Sunny Isles Beach branch library open Monday-Saturday, which offers an assortment of classes and programs in the City’s first floor meeting room.
The first floor is completed with a Visitor Center, supported by the Sunny Isles Beach Tourism and Marketing Council. The Visitor Center offers tourists and residents alike a wealth of resources for finding activities and events around South Florida. Sunny Isles Beach branded merchandise along with tickets to SIB Cultural Events are available for purchase in the Center as well.
Housed on the second floor of the Government Center is the SIB Police Department, open 24/7. Elevators from the lobby transport customers to the second floor during regular business hours, though after hours, the police department can only be accessed via the 2nd level of the parking garage. Accident and crime reports may be requested at the records department.
For those residents, visitors and contractors looking to visit and address issues of code compliance and parking, apply for building permits, or obtain business licenses, the third floor of the Government Center is your destination.
The fourth floor holds the City Commission; offices of the City Attorney, Clerk and Manager; human resources department; and finance department. Constituents may make appointments to meet with their elected officials or request public records from the City Clerk.
