With summer in full swing, here are a few tips from Nassau Bay’s Code Enforcement Department:
Continue to dedicate time to exterior maintenance efforts, including pressure washing, repairing loose shutters, touching up faded or peeled painted surfaces, and applying weed control to your lawn and cracks in your front walks and driveways.
Maintain your lawn and trees. Residents are reminded that – per City ordinance – grass should not exceed six (6) inches in height and should not extend more than three (3) inches over the curb line or edge of the property line. In addition to lawn care, trees are also important to maintain. Unhealthy trees can be hazardous, so it is crucial to have them evaluated to prevent costly projects and hazardous situations. Make the effort to remove dead trees or tree limbs as soon as possible.
Ensure swimming pools are up to par. Standing water attracts mosquitoes, providing ideal breeding grounds. It is important to maintain swimming pools and filtration systems to prevent mosquito infestations which can spread diseases.
While thinking about the safety of your swimming pool, remember to evaluate the condition of your fencing – ensure it is in good shape to help prevent unauthorized or unsupervised access to the water.
Finally, ensure neither you or your guests park a boat or trailer illegally. Per City ordinance, neither a boat nor a trailer should be parked in a City street or right-of-way in excess of any 24-hour period without a special permit.
