Vero Beach city workers clear drains clogged with confetti by Grind & Grape.

Last week, we reported that residents and business owners in Vero Beach were asking Grind & Grape to clean up the confetti they left in the streets from their New Year’s Eve party.

On Monday, a crew from the City of Vero Beach came out and had to unclog the storm drains near Grind & Grape.

“The city has come out four times already today sucking the storm drain on the corner. Each time it has been confetti,” a local business owner told Sebastian Daily.

Several people complained to the establishment on their Facebook page about the confetti, but so far they have not replied.

A patron reported that they shot off the confetti and filled the establishment and public street on January 1st.

“Be responsible and clean the mess up properly,” Susan McGuigan said.
