MIAMI (AP) — A Miami Beach apartment building owned by the mayor of the Florida town where a condominium collapsed in June has given his tenants 45 days to vacate the building so extensive repairs can be completed. The lease termination letter from Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett said they’ve been waiting for the city of Miami Beach to issue permits to repair the damage caused by Hurricane Irma in 2017. He says he hopes the final permit will be issued imminently so work can be completed to the front of the building and the elevator. The Lois Apartments will also be undergoing a required 40-year inspection early, due to the Champlain Towers South collapse.
