Santa Rosa County Winter Weather Advisory #4
It's back to normal business tomorrow, Thurs., Jan. 18
Wed., Jan. 17, 2 p.m. -  Although the extreme edge of the cold front has passed, all Santa Rosa County roads and bridges should be considered open with hazards due to the potential for remaining icy patches. High winds and low humidity will help dry up the roads so we are not forecasted to have as many ice issues tonight.

  • Santa Rosa County Board of Commissioners, including the library system
  • Santa Rosa County Animal Shelter (including the animal shelter night box)
  • The Navarre Pier and Navarre Beach utility offices
  • Central Landfill - Waste Pro will collect Wednesday's routes on Thursday, Thursday's routes on Friday and Friday's routes on Saturday. If your normal collection day is Saturday that will not be collected until Wednesday next week. For more information, call Waste Pro, 850-365-1900. ECUA's pickup schedule did not change.
