DAYTONA BEACH — Volusia County Chair Jeff Brower is set to meet with the owner of the Hard Rock Hotel after snubbing the Daytona Seaside resort about its seashore driving limits before this week.

The stretch of beach behind Daytona's Hard Rock Hotel is a no-drive zone, blocked off by these poles.

Brower, who pledged to make preserving beach front driving a priority after his November election win, declined an invite to communicate at an event at the Really hard Rock mainly because of poles on the seashore that avert driving on a 410-foot stretch of sand driving the hotel.

“I’m not performing something at the Hard Rock until they take out the poison poles on our seashore and give Volusia citizens our seaside back again. This is hurting our tourism,” Brower wrote Tuesday in an email received by the News-Journal.

The “poison” Brower referred to in his email is a chemical employed to treat the poles that incorporates carcinogens, in accordance to the Florida Division of Agriculture and Purchaser Solutions.
