” The City beach maintenance crews and an outside contractor “Beach Raker” are
involved in an extensive seaweed clean up and removal operation utilizing tractors and various heavy equipment rakes.
This work will be occurring now and over the next approximately 4 weeks along the City’s beach.
Most of the
activities will be occurring in the morning hours.
An environmental permit from the County/State regulatory agency was obtained for this activity.
The City has experienced an extraordinary tonnage of seaweed this year, and the added resources are needed in order to maintain the beach.
The City and the CRA are sharing in the costs of this clean-up effort.
The Procurement Dept. and the City Manager’s office has assisted with the purchase requisitions/paperwork on this process . Funding is being provided from both the CRA and the Sanitation fund.
If there are any questions as to this operation, please contact Asst. Public Works Director, Charles Lassiter at 954 967 4526 ext. 4207″
