The following information is being proactively disseminated in an effort to educate the public and ultimately keep our scenic beaches as clean as possible. Residents and visitors should be aware of the following City Ordinances regarding waste on our beaches:
o City Code 11-12 (3): Take garbage, recyclables, yard waste, industrial waste or household hazardous waste from any property and place it in or around any public or private use container located: on another private property, at the beach, in any city park, in any parking lot, or on any city right-of-way.
o City Code 5-16: The owner of every animal shall remove any feces deposited by such animal on any property other than the owner’s property. Any person walking any animal on the public beach or public property must carry the appropriate equipment to remove and dispose of any feces deposited by such animal on the public beach. The maximum fine for a violation of either City Code is $500.
Spring Break in Flagler Beach saw an increase in visitors to our City and we anticipate a very busy and enjoyable summer. The City of Flagler Beach has over six plus (6+) miles of beautiful beaches and we’re urging our visitors and residents alike to respect our beaches and clean up after yourself. Summer picnics with family & friends on the beach with sandwiches, cold-drinks, ice cream, etc. are what make this City an attraction for thousands of visitors.
Please help preserve our beaches and remember; “leave footprints in the sand, not your trash”
Your assistance in helping protect our beautiful beaches is greatly appreciated! If you have any questions about the information listed above, please feel free to contact Captain Doughney or any member of the Flagler Beach Police Department.
