Riviera Beach, Florida
Riviera Beach has reported $50,000 spent lobbying the federal government in 2009. Riviera Beach pays membership dues to the Florida League of Cities, a government sector lobbying association. Riviera Beach also pays for services of the lobbying firm Alcade & Fay.
The City of Riviera Beach allegedly engaged in retaliation against a local activist after he had fought a local redevelopment plan. The activist was arrested after speaking at a public meeting and charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct. He was released after 30 minutes on a "promise to appear" and returned to the meeting when Riviera Police Chief Clarence Williams told him that if he didn't leave, he would be arrested again.
