Social media is going to be the bridge between Miami-Dade County residents and its mayor today.

Mayor Carlos Gimenez is holding a Facebook AND Twitter town hall meeting this afternoon.

Residents can ask the Mayor about his proposed budget, which is hotly contested right now due to hundreds of proposed layoffs.

The Facebook meeting is from Noon to 1pm while the Twitter Chat will be from 3pm to 4pm.

To participate in the town hall, be sure to use the hashtag #MDCBudget during the times to submit your questions.

An in person town hall takes place Thursday at the Aventura City Chambers at 6pm.
