Canal Maintenance Has Been Completed
Each year, Palmetto Bay employs a contractor to clear stormwater drains throughout the Village to prevent standing water which may lead to flooding during a significant storm event. Drain cleaning is implemented annually in advance of the Hurricane Season which runs from June 1st to November 30th.

During the FY 2021-22, the Village Council approved the selection of EnviroWaste Services Group and allocated $150,000 to work on the zones which they began on February 14, 2022 and it's estimated to be completed in 2-3 months.
