Seaside poles at Daytona Challenging Rock include cancer-leading to pesticide

DAYTONA BEACH — Volusia County Chair Jeff Brower is established to meet with the owner of the Challenging Rock Hotel after snubbing the Daytona Beach vacation resort over its beach front driving limits earlier 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 seashore driving a priority after his November election get, declined an invite to discuss at an occasion at the Tricky Rock mainly because of poles on the seaside that avoid driving on a 410-foot stretch of sand powering the resort.

“I am not accomplishing anything at all at the Tricky Rock till they remove the poison poles on our beach front and give Volusia people our seashore back. This is hurting our tourism,” Brower wrote Tuesday in an e mail acquired by the Information-Journal.

The “poison” Brower referred to in his email is a chemical utilized to treat the poles that includes carcinogens, in accordance to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Buyer Expert services.
