Today, the Public Safety Team including Police, Fire, Code and members from the City Public Works Department along with the Red Cross and the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Animal Control went door-to-door in the NE area along 4th, 5th and 6th St. talking with residents and handing out valuable information. Information included hurricane preparedness and safety, what to do about stray animals and education on Code Compliance. Resources were discussed for those who need assistance and problem areas such as overgrown trees blocking sidewalks, potholes or areas in need of repair through Public Works were noted. Everyone we spoke with was delighted for the contact and very appreciative of the initiative. Keep looking out! The initiative could be in your area soon!
