Once again, as another Spring Break looms, Miami Beach City Commissioners spent hours debating how to curtail the “anything goes” attitude during the month of March. While most residents, businesses, and elected officials agree on the problem, there is yet to be a strong consensus on a solution.
Commissioners did approve on first reading a measure to roll back the hours of alcohol sales on a limited basis in parts of South Beach during peak Spring Break but it was a less restrictive measure than what Mayor Dan Gelber wanted.
