The Florida Senate

2011 Florida Statutes

F.S. 255.045
255.045 Cleanup after events held on public property.
(1) Any person who sponsors or promotes an event to be held on or within any public property or facility in the state must reasonably protect such property or facility and, after the event, must provide for all necessary cleanup, repair, and restoration of such property or facility to its condition prior to the event, so that such public property or facility is suitable for normal use. The cleanup, repair, and restoration must be accomplished within 15 days after the date the event is concluded.
(2) This section does not supersede any laws, rules, ordinances, or properly adopted policies the requirements of which are more stringent than the requirements imposed by this section.
(3) A violation of this section is a noncriminal violation, punishable by a fine not to exceed $500 per day, to begin on the day after the 15-day cleanup period has expired. The imposition of the fine against any person does not abrogate that person’s duty to pay any cleanup or restoration costs resulting from the event. 1, 2, 3, ch. 89-73.
