Emergency action needs to be taken based on 2017 Florida Building Code #116.5 (Broward County Administrative Provisions) to ensure the safety of the public and the employees. I am requiring as the Building Official that it be closed until the necessary repairs have been made to bring this building back to a safe condition. This emergency repairs identified in the Engineers’ report shall be done as expeditiously as possible”.
