Heat Causing Solid Waste and Yard Waste Pickup Delays

Heat has significantly impacted the readiness of our solid waste and yard waste trucks. As a result, we haven’t had enough available trucks to maintain solid waste and yard waste pickup schedules. Equipment issues with these trucks in such hot and humid conditions as we’ve experienced over the last few weeks are not uncommon. We apologize to residents for the inconvenience. Our first priority is to pick up solid waste (green carts). Our staff is currently working on its off days of Wednesdays and Saturdays to catch up on missed routes. Our second priority is yard waste (brown carts) and it may not be collected this week. At this time, it is recommended to leave solid waste out for pickup and it will be collected as soon as possible. We hope to be back on schedule next week and will keep residents informed on our progress.

Community Watch Protocol

Community Watch Protocol

The following standards have been put in place to enhance the communication flow between Police and Community Watch Groups. This protocol will also help our Crime Prevention Specialists streamline Community Watch groups into our growing community.

Protocol for Community Watch Groups

  1. All Community Watch groups must meet at least once a year. More frequent meetings are highly encouraged. 
  2. Community Watch groups should submit any crime related issues or concerns to their Crime Prevention Specialist via e-mail or phone. 
  3. Groups that do not have recurring meetings should notify their Crime Prevention Specialist of an upcoming meeting at least two weeks prior to the meeting. 
  4. It is our intention to have sworn law enforcement personnel at every community watch meeting. Due to the nature of police work, emergencies do arise and we cannot guarantee the presence of sworn personnel. 
  5. Sworn personnel and Crime Prevention Specialists will be scheduled to speak first at community watch meetings. This allows the sworn personnel to go back in service to patrol the community.
  6. All changes to community watch meetings, to include dates, time, and cancellations should be reported to your Crime Prevention Specialist as soon as possible.
