In reaction to two separate shootings over spring break, Miami Beach commissioners decided Tuesday to extend an emergency curfew.
Unanimously, the commission agreed to extend the city’s South Beach curfew until at least Monday, citing safety concerns.
The curfew would have began early Thursday after midnight and continued through Saturday if Alina Hudak had proclaimed a state of emergency on Monday. On top of that, the commission voted Tuesday to grant the city manager authority to ban alcohol sales in the neighborhood.
Businesses that regularly earn a lot of money in March may sue the city, but keeping residents and tourists safe was the city’s first concern, according to many commissioners
