Tim Meerbott has deep roots in the Cutler Bay community, living here since he was a baby. While growing up, his parents, Glenda and Ed, who were very active members in their community, taught him an important lesson: If you want the world to be a better place, you can’t wait for someone else to do it.
And that is just what Tim decided to do—work toward making Cutler Bay a better place to live, work and play. He has the honor of being the first Town Council Member of Cutler Bay to have ever been sworn into office, a position he held from 2006-2010. Some of the highlights of his extensive involvement with the Town include being a member of the Town’s Charter Committee in 2014 and 2018, a Town Business Liaison from 2006-2010, and Co-Creator and Chair of the South Dade Municipal Coalition, among many other achievements.
Some may say, however, that his greatest achievement was his sponsorship of the green initiative that allowed golf carts to ride through the Town’s streets—something that has become a staple of this community.
Tim believes this community is a wonderful place to raise a family. He raised his two sons, Lance and Kyle, now in their 20s, in Cutler Bay—along with his wife of 28 years, Cosette, an elementary school teacher who passed away on September 22, 2015. He understands the character and small-town feel that our community has and works hard to preserve it.
In addition to his heavy involvement with the Town, Tim has also participated in many schools' sports teams and faith-based organizations. He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Economics from Florida International University and is currently a Senior Division Manager for Allstate Corporation—where he has worked at for over 30 years.
