Ultra‘s ability to host their event at Virginia Key is once more coming into question. As the latest, Brickell Homeowner Association claim the new Ultra contract is being deemed a license instead of a lease.
The group which speaks for 35,000 residents claims that the event license is a lease. Brickell Homeowner Association also alleges Ultra would need to pay a “fair market value” to utilize the land under a proper leasing agreement.
The Miami Herald writes, “The distinction is important because a lease would require the city to open a public bid before awarding a contract. The attorney representing the Brickell homeowners, David Winker, said in a statement that the lawsuit asks the court to “hold the city accountable and force it to follow its laws regarding competitive bidding and participation of its citizens in the process.”
While these things keep happening continuously, they also need to know that the festival does more good than harm. Ultra stimulates the Miami economy more than any other event throughout the year.
A judge will hear the emergency motion for a temporary injunction this Friday, March 15th.
