Broward will expand its code enforcement if cities don’t police COVID

Broward County leaders stressed enforcement yet again Tuesday as Mayor Dale Holness held a call with mayors of the county’s various cities plus doctors and members of the health department.

“A part of what came out of this is that we ought to see more enforcement, so we can beat this virus and not have to shut our businesses down again,” Holness said.

The frustration at the county level was that some cities have been enforcing the emergency orders — sending code enforcement out and shutting down businesses when necessary — but others simply have not.

Cities like Pembroke Pines and Hallandale Beach showed no citations issued on the dashboard the county maintains, so the county is stepping in.
