VEGETATIVE DEBRIS REDUCTION VIA AIR CURTAIN BURNING TO BEGIN THIS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19TH– The City will begin burning vegetative debris on the golf course property via “Air Curtain” burning by Thursday. This will reduce the volume of the debris by 97%, therefore we will realize a tremendous cost savings. The Department of Environmental Protection and Forestry Fire Service have approved this reduction method which meets all air quality standards.
By burning via air curtain, a process designed for metropolitan and suburban use, we will save landfill space. Where we are burning on this golf course property we exceed the setback requirements by double (600 ft. vs. 300 ft). This process burns extremely hot, 1000 degrees Celsius, with virtually no smoke.
WASTEWATER – The City Council recently authorized a 50% percent credit on the September wastewater flow charge. This credit will be based on the usage from September 2016, and will be credited on a future bill, most likely November. There is nothing for the customer to do to receive the credit; it will be automatic.
Do not remove your candy cane vent if it is damaged. This will aid crews in locating the pipe and restoring your sewer faster. If your candy cane is broken you can also email email@example.com with your address and approximate location of the candy cane. Call 305-517-6764 for wastewater emergencies.
The City’s wastewater system is 100% operational. For Wastewater Emergencies, Please call 305-517-6764.
