North Miami Mayor Andre Pierre's troubles continue as it was recently revealed that he is involved in a Haitian business venture linked to the lead developer of Biscayne Landing.

Pierre is an advisor with Cayemite Enterprises on Petite Cayemite, a high-end eco-tourism destination project slated for an island off Haiti’s coast, reports the Miami Herald.

Cayemite Enterprises is reportedly linked to Oleta Partners, the development firm working on Biscayne Landing, a controversial planned community in North Miami.

Although the North Miami mayor has not profited from the Petite Cayemite venture, one source reported he has expressed an interest in investing.

In November, the Miami-Dade Commission on Ethics and Public Trust released a report alleging that Pierre exploited his position when he used a municipal athletic field without paying almost $40,000 in rental fees.

That came just after he was publicly lambasted for giving the key to the city to the Kardashian sisters.

Pierre's past controversies also include calling councilmen's relatives names at city meetings, allegedly giving a city contract to a known racketeering suspect, and allegations involving falsified campaign reports.
