North Miami Beach Mayor Myron Rosner Loses Bid to Dismiss Ethics Complaint
|Myron Rosner is headed for a showdown with the Miami-Dade ethics commission.|
It looks like Rosner will finally have to defend himself before the Miami-Dade ethics commission, which last week denied his request to dismiss two separate complaints against him. New Times reported last April that while Rosner was a councilman, he was able to obtain permits without seeking the required variances from the city council.
The paraplegic mayor, who denies the allegations, has had a rough first year in office.
In addition to the ethics charges against him, he was involved in a public spat with the Walt Disney Co. this past December when park officials at Animal Kingdom and Epcot Center allegedly demanded he ride his high-tech wheelchair on four wheels instead of two.
