United Parcel Service and some Brevard homeowners have allegedly committed zoning violations in Brevard County residential neighborhoods with portable storage units and golf carts that are used to stage and store packages for deliveries this holiday season.
Brevard County Code Enforcement has identified ten locations in Brevard County where the alleged violations have taken place.
However, there may be more locations that the Brevard County Code Enforcement has not yet identified.
In an email, Brevard County Code Enforcement Chief Bobby Bowen said, “My officers are assigned to conduct follow up inspections on Tuesday of next week to ensure that UPS lives up to their word to the Board of County Commissioners that they have ceased operations and by Tuesday of next week they will have removed their golf carts and PODs. Failure to do so will result in the Sheriff’s Department issuing “Notices to Appear” with a $500.00 a day fine for both the Homeowner and UPS for zoning violation of operating a business in a residential zoning classification and failure to obtain a Business Tax Receipt.”
