In his Wednesday video message, Village Mayor Mike Davey provided some highlights from Tuesday’s Village Council meeting, commenting that the village simply did not have the authority to open the beaches as they are closed under a County Executive Order.
Davey said the village was suspending the mobile COVID-19 testing being conducted by the Key Biscayne Fire Department. The testing at the drive-through site located on St. Agnes would continue to operate. “Condo pools stay closed, per county order” added Davey.
