Let’s Talk Trash

C

hange is never easy. After over 40 years, the City of Pompano

Beach has updated the way we handle our garbage. The change was made to improve the curb appeal of the City by eliminating the bags, piles of trash and continuous bulk trash on the curb. By now you have seen the new grey and blue carts, read the flyers and pamphlets on the new service. Here is a summary on what can go into the carts: The grey cart is for household waste. Please place all your garbage into the grey cart. But there are other items that could also be placed into the grey cart including yard trash, coconuts, grass clipping, leaves, branches… the list goes on. If there is no room in the cart, put those yard trash items into one of your private garbage cans and place it out for service on your bulk trash day. Remember, you can’t put your household garbage into your private garbage cans. Those items must go into the grey cart. The new blue cart is for recycling and is much larger than the 18 gallon bin we had before. This is because more and more people today realize the need to recycle. The materials that are accepted in the blue recycling cart are aluminum

Another change is once per week bulk service at the curb. Bulk items are commonly known as those items which cannot be canned, bagged or bundled. Examples are: couch, chair, stove, desk, ironing board, mattress, carpet, wooden doors, sink, etc. An easy way to remember your bulk day is that it is the opposite of your recycling day. So for example,

bulk materials on Saturday (up to 4 cubic yards or what a standard pickup truck could hold) at no cost. The address is 1951 N. Powerline Road. All you have to do is bring your proof of Pompano Beach residency. The hours of operation are from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each Saturday.

Pier Parking Garage Project Upate 1

Construction on the Pompano Beach Pier Parking Garage is continuing on schedule and on budget. The garage, located at NE 2nd Street between A1A and Pompano Beach Boulevard, will be open to the public in time for the 4th of July celebration! In the coming weeks efforts will focus on demolishing the old library building and begin work on Pier Street and Seabreeze Way, the two internal roadways. The Pier Parking Garage is the first public parking garage in Pompano Beach. It will feature iconic architecture, five levels of enclosed parking with 663 spaces, 6,200 square feet of retail space and a new Tourism Information Center. The garage

brother’s land on June 11,1915, and began constructing his new house soon thereafter. Sample built a spacious house located on high elevation, over 22 feet above sea level, alongside the Dixie Highway and the Florida East Coast Railway, the area’s two major means of transportation. Also known as the Old Sample Estate and Pine Haven, the house is a seventeen room Georgian Colonial structure constructed by Sample supposedly as a replica of a home he previously owned in South Carolina. It is unquestionably one of the most architecturally significant historic homes in the county, and one of the earliest to display a formal architectural style. The home served as the base for Sample’s farming operations that stretched from today’s Lighthouse Point out west past what is now Powerline Road. At first, Sample grew pineapples, a popular crop for earlier settlers to the area, but it soon became apparent that winter vegetables, such as string beans, bell peppers, eggplant and squash, among other crops, were more profitable. Sample constructed a road in 1917 to reach his cropland (like most local farmers, Sample’s agricultural fields were not contiguous). Today that thorough-

Although they purchased the home on August 14 th, 1943, Mrs. McDougald who was then acting postmistress of Deerfield could not get a release from her job due to a manpower shortage during the war years. They had to postpone the family’s move until May 11 th, 1944. By the time the McDougald family moved into the home, the Dixie Highway had lost some of its glamour. Mrs. McDougald recalled, “Much to my sorrow there was not much traffic - just a couple cars a day. It was lonely. We often went out on the lawn and waved at engineers and conductors in trains rolling down the Florida East Coast Railway tracks.” William Duncan McDougald, born in Montgomery County, Georgia, had arrived in Deerfield in 1921. In 1929, he married schoolteacher Sarah Sellers. Although his main occupation was farming, he also served as a city commissioner for Deerfield as well as its Chief of Police. He was deputized by the Broward County Sheriff’s Department and was elected to several terms as Constable of the north Broward district.

in-kind donations by local businesses. In the early morning hours of October 25 th, 2005, Pompano Beach was struck by Hurricane Wilma, resulting in significant damage to the historic structure: the roof was opened, leading to water damage to walls, ceilings and floors. Wooden awnings were ripped from the house and a number of windows were broken, as was the distinctive leaded-glass fan light above the entry door. Extensive repairs began to “rerestore” the house. The non-profit organization then embarked on a 1.5 million several attempts to preserve it, including moving he house to Deerfield Beach, Tradewinds Park and the Municipal Golf Course in Pompano Beach, but logistical and financial complexities could not be overcome.

By David Aycock, Animal Control Officer

When a Be On The Look Out or BOLO is broadcast over a police radio, every officer stops what they are doing and writes down the information in the BOLO so they know what or whom they are looking for. A B.O.L.O is one of the most important announcements they receive. The one thing that I have learned in my long career as an animal control officer is that when someone calls my office looking for a lost pet, I consider it a BOLO. Most people think of their pets as family and that is why it is so important for me to help find them. When a child is missing we have an Amber alert, neighborhood search parties and media coverage. When a pet is missing, we have a distraught owner and a hand-

Flood Damage This article is required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to satisfy provisions in the Community Rating System (CRS) for reduced costs for flood insurance.The following is offered to Pompano Beach residents to help prevent and minimize the impact on lives and property caused by floodwaters.

Flood Hazard Map

The City’s has copies of FEMA’s Flood Criteria Map identifying flood zones for all properties in the city. The FEMA Flood Hazard Areas found within the City limits include Zone X, Zone AE, Zone AH, and Zone VE. The map depicts the flood hazard associated with any parcel in the City. A summarized flood zone map is located in the Building Inspections Division at City Hall and is available in electronic GIS format.

Flood Risk

Although we have been relatively fortunate for many years, the flooding on Halloween 2011 reminds us of the possibility of a flooding event without a major storm or hurricane. The risk of flooding within the City of Pompano Beach can increase by the presence of higher water levels within the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway due to storm surge In general, property located east of State Road A1A within the City has been designated as a coastal zone which encounters greater flooding risk due to waves and storm surge during a significant storm event.

Flood Warning System

The City of Pompano Beach, in coordination with Broward County, has a warning system to notify residents of impending flood danger. Warnings will be transmitted on public address systems such as the City’s website, CODE RED, television channel 78, telephone, and on a door-to-door basis. Listen for instructions during times of flood risk.

Flood Safety

These are precautionary steps to consider before possible flooding: • Listen to radio or television for warnings. • Obey warning and evacuation instructions from disaster officials. • Know your evacuation zone and route. • Take your own essentials (food, toiletries, clothes, blankets, etc.). • Turn off the electricity and gas before leaving your home. • Bring a battery-operated flashlight. • Be careful at all times, particularly at night, and try to remain calm. • Do not drive through flooded roadways • Do not walk through high waters • Stay away from electrical wires

Flood Insurance

Most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover property losses due to flood waters. To insure your property for flood damage, you

{Protect Your Home and Property}

need a flood insurance policy. If you do not have valid flood insurance, contact an agent immediately. Property owners can insure property; renters can insure possessions. The City of Pompano Beach participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) to provide city residents with the initial qualification to purchase flood insurance. Flood insurance typically covers the building structure but not the contents so verify your coverage for contents under your homeowner’s insurance. Please note that there is a 30-day waiting period after purchase before NFIP flood insurance coverage takes effect. We applied to FEMA for participation in the CRS program to enable our residents to qualify for lower flood insurance premiums.

Property Protection

There are ways to minimize property losses from flood damage, including: • Move furniture and other household valu ables to rooms or spaces in the upper story of a two-story dwelling or a location higher than the regular floor elevation in a single story home. • Place sandbags in strategic places around your property prior to flood status. When sandbags are placed correctly at proper locations, they can slow up and divert flood waters. • Upgrading your property can include regrading your property to providefor on-site storage of stormwater runoff, installing an earthen berm along the perimeter, retrofitting the existing structure to be flood proofed, or elevating the existing structure to raise the finish floor elevation.

Development Permits

All development (new construction, additions, renovations, alterations to properties, etc.) in the City of Pompano Beach require a construction permit. The NFIP and the Florida Building Code require the entire building to conform to the requirements for a new building when building repairs or alterations exceed 50 percent of the building’s market value. All applicable building permit applications must conform to this requirement when submitted to the Building Inspections Division. The requirement may also apply if a building is substantially damaged. Before building on, altering, regrading, or replacing fill on your property, always check with the Building Division on any permit requirements. A permit may be required to ensure that the construction does not negatively impact adjacent properties. If an ongoing construction project within a City does not have a posted permit sign, please contact the City’s Building Division to report the possible violation.

Stormwater Management

Stormwater is managed through a system of pipes and drainage canals maintained regularly by our Public Works and Utilities Departments, the Broward County Office of Environmental Services and South Florida Water Management District. Constant water flow through these canals, especially during heavy storms, is essential to flood prevention in the City. City and state laws prohibit dumping trash in waterways. Report violators to Public Works Department at 954.786.4060.

Natural Habitat

Natural areas of the City provide a beneficial function by reducing the potential severity of flooding. These natural areas typically collect and retain stormwater runoff during rainfall events and allow for the infiltration of stormwater into the natural ground surface, which can reduce the flooding levels within the developed areas of the City. These natural areas also enhance the water quality of stormwater runoff by allowing suspended sediments and nutrients to settle during the retention period. State regulations protect those natural areas that help to reduce the risks associated with flooding. Along the beach, no new structures are permitted seaward of the Coastal Construction Line without permission. Other restrictions protect some wetland areas from development.

Rate Reductions

On June 11th, 1993, FEMA awarded the City with a Class 9 rating in the CRS. This rating earned Pompano Beach residents a five percent discount on flood insurance premiums. In September 1994, the City received official notification that Pompano Beach residents are eligible for an additional five percent discount, or ten percent total, on flood insurance based on the City complying with the requirements for a Class 8 rating in the CRS. In July 2012, FEMA awarded the City a class 7 rating so flood insurance policy holders in special flood hazard areas in the City now receive a 15% discount on their insurance premiums.
