Like everyone in our City, County, State and world, we are learning to cope with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and respond with intelligence, calm, resourcefulness, and caution. We are taking extra measures to ensure the health of our employees and the community we serve and ensuring that we adhere to guidelines requiring social distance.

During this global pandemic, our team is focused on supporting compliance with emergency directives. We are in our community educating the public and reporting any instances of non-compliance to the appropriate authorities.
We are also documenting any illegal dumping or other litter issues that require special pick-up by our colleagues in Solid Waste to ensure that garbage does not remain on our streets.
We are referring graffiti on public property for clean-up to our NET Graffiti-Busters colleagues.
We are responding to complaints and conducting inspections as they can be done safely, taking extra precautions to prevent the spread of the virus.
We understand that this is a time of great stress for everyone, and we are proceeding with sensitivity to assist in meeting the needs of our residents. As always, our goal is to work in partnership with our community and we are confident that together, we will emerge from this challenging time stronger and more resilient than before.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. The City also has a COVID-19 Hotline available at (305) 960-5027 from 9AM – 5pm if you have questions related to the health crisis.
