    MIAMI, Florida (WFOR) — Surfside is taking steps to help prevent another tragedy like last year’s collapse at the Champlain Towers South.

In a unanimous vote, the Surfside commission passed an ordinance to make 30 year building inspections a requirement.

The measure must still be signed and executed by the mayor, town attorney, and town clerk.

Surfside is the first municipality in Miami-Dade to shorten the county’s 40 year requirement.

Ninety eight people died last June when a section of the 40-year-old building collapsed.
