Something stinks at Palm Beach International Airport.

And apparently it's the no-shoes rule through security gates.

The county airports director said at an advisory board meeting Wednesday security personnel "are complaining of odor" in the area and requested a change.

Flight delays often mean a shorter window than the airport's regular 4:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. hours provide, meaning new carpet might be a better more feasible than a good shampooing.

The county is already replacing much of the terminal tile and carpet, but nothing was immediately promised for the stinky security area.
