The Loews Miami Beach is one of 24 commercial properties cited in a billing mishap from nearly 20 years ago that resulted in about $3.5 million in unpaid county water-and-sewer hook-up fees. Miami-Dade on Tuesday removed the debt from its accounting books, declaring it officially beyond hope of being collected. The county and Miami Beach waited too long to pursue the money, allowing the legal cap on past debts to expire before trying to collect.
