45th Street Flea Market: Troubled market up for debate at West Palm Beach Nuisance Abatement Board

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The issue of the troubled 45th Street Flea Market will go in front of the West Palm Beach Nuisance Abatement Board Thursday night.

The market is working on getting in compliance with the city after several code violations were found.

The city says the Nuisance Abatement Board has the power to the close the flea market.

Earlier this year, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio called the property a "chronic nuisance".

The city says it found code violations like trash and pot holes. The market was also the scene of a murder on Sept. 28, 2013.

According to the Palm Beach Post, owners of the property say they have made improvements like removing troubled tenants, doing background checks on current tenants and adding more security.

The Nuisance Abatement board meets Thursday at 6 p.m. at West Palm Beach City Hall.
