2 Fort Lauderdale companies found to be in compliance last weekend failed to cut this time


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Last Friday, two establishments on Boulevard Las Olas passed code compliance, but this week, they did not make the cut.

A total of 5 establishments were fined and closed on Friday after being found non-compliant by the City of Fort Lauderdale’s Community Improvement and Compliance Division. The compliance division continues its “unplanned compliance checks” of companies throughout the weekend that do not follow reopening directives.

The two companies that were visited again in accordance with the code and found to be in violation: Louie Bossi’s Ristorante Bar Pizzeria, 1032 E. Las Olas Blvd., who was fined $ 250 for not imposing social distancing , and YOLO, 333 E. Las Olas Blvd., for not having imposed a face covering and social distancing.

The other three establishments were fined and closed on Friday: Anna’s Florist Coffee and Wine Bar, 1003 E. Las Olas Boulevard, $ 250, for non-application of social distancing, Fishtales, 3355 NE 33rd St., for non-application of social distancing, violations of the cover of the face and open. after hours (noon), and Hunter’s Beach Bar, 237 Almond Ave., who was fined $ 15,000 for selling alcohol on the premises. Broward County Mayor Dale Holness said closings are imminent for “restaurants serving bars”.

Fort Lauderdale Code Compliance Officer Porshia Williams said last week that code complaints officers would ensure that no one exceeded the 50% maximum occupancy in a building. Other compliant problems which, if not followed, could result in a fine and a judgment were: customers did not gather in bars, tables at least six feet away, signage with COVID directives was posted, and the businesses in operation had been approved for phase 1 of the reopening of the city.

According to the City of Fort Lauderdale, businesses operating under the appropriate licenses are advised that they can open after 24 hours if they correct the violations.
