I am happy to announce that recycling operations will resume on September 3. The City Commission approved a new contract with Waste Management at a special meeting last night. The contract was approved unanimously and provides significantly better terms to the City and its residents. In addition, there will be a vigorous public outreach and education campaign meant to reduce contamination. Information and tips for recycling will be disseminated shortly.
In addition, I would like to give you all an update with respect to the upcoming dog park in Quiet Waters Park. Remember, this is a County project. The City of Deerfield Beach is not responsible in any way. The County informed me yesterday that the CO was issued for the dog park about a week ago. The County is now finalizing the remaining items, which include sod, landscaping, fencing and paving. These items are expected to be completed in October. I will keep you posted for an exact opening date when it is announced.
I hope everyone had a good and safe first week back at school.
Have a great weekend!
