BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – Cocoa Beach passed an ordinance, Thursday, that would prohibit people to leave items like chairs, tents, and umbrellas on the beach overnight.

Under the old law, the city was not able to clean up these items, as they are people private property; and if they did choose to move them, the items would have to be stored using city money.

However, the ordinance now allows the city to throw unattended items away between sunset and sunrise.

City manager James McKnight says abandoned tents and chairs on the beach has been a problem for years, and has posed a danger for beach workers.
