Miami Beach is a strong city manager form of government. The Miami Beach Charter provides for 7 Commissioners elected by registered voters of Miami Beach. The Commissioners are essentially the legislative branch of the Miami Beach municipal government. The Commissioners select the City Manager who heads the executive branch of the government. The Commissioners also consent to the Manager’s selection of department heads. The Charter can be changed only through the referendum process. The Miami Beach Code can be amended by the City Commission. Land use changes need 5/7 vote. Other ordinances need a majority 4/7 votes.

As a Commissioner, Jonah Wolfson understood the three main concerns of Miami Beach citizens – height of buildings, the density of population and traffic. Any proposal presented to the Miami Beach City Commission is always evaluated through these prisms. Is the height appropriate and will it infringe on existing residents? Does the proposal unnecessarily increase population? Does the proposal unreasonably aggravate an already difficult traffic situation on Miami Beach?

Miami Beach is well known for its nightlife. Clubs, bars and restaurants operate all night. This can lead to some drivers operating their cars under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
