Miami Parking Authority Falsified Emails To Keep Moishe Mana From Challenging Bid

The Miami Parking Authority fabricated emails to make it appear that they followed proper procedure for bidding at 240 N. Miami Ave, according to a Miami city attorney.

Mana’s attorneys had said in a lawsuit that the MPA never provided proper notification of a decision to award the property to a rival. While the MPA had submitted emails as evidence of notification, a forensic examination has now revealed the purported sent dates to be false, according to a city of Miami attorney.

MPA planning and development director Rolando Tapanes has resigned in the wake of the revelation, according to the Herald. MPA CEO Art Noriega, rumored to be a “Tampa homeboy” of the winning bidder, remains in his position.
