The Public Works Department cuts back, trims, or removes trees in the City Right-of-Way that are over hanging roadways and sidewalks, those that are blocking stop signs, and those that are dead. Other bushes and shrubs that cause a site obstruction to motorists are also trimmed back, and many locations throughout the city are on a 3 to 4 times a year schedule to prevent site obstructions before they happen. The palm trees that are in the City Right-of-Ways and medians are pruned each spring to keep them fresh and promote further growth.
If you have a question regarding any trees, brushes or shrubs, in or overhanging a City Right-of-Way, or would like to report vegetation that is a site obstruction, please contact our Customer Service Department at
321-952-3438. You can also send us an email, or complete our Customer Service Request online.
The trimming of trees or other vegetation located near power lines, is performed by FPL. You can contact FPL by calling 1-800-226-3545, by visiting FPL Tree Trimming, or by completing the FPL Service Request.
