Deerfield-News. com-Deerfield Beach,Fl-Deerfield-News.com reached out to City spokesperson Rebecca Medina Stewart about the walkway repairs needed at the beach and asked what was the reason for the delays. Here is the response from the city of Deerfield Beach.
“So, here’s the thing with the Embassy Deck at the beach. The building codes changed for that deck since it was last constructed. This required that the City re-engineer the deck system to meet current codes. We had to procure an engineer for the new design, and to complete the design documents. The design documents have finally been completed. Now we are in the process of procuring the contractor to make the repair. Once a contractor is secured, he will pull the required permits to begin construction. Holidays will likely delay things, so we anticipate work will begin January 2022.
I know these projects always seem to take so long, but there are a lot of checks and balances.”
