One of our dynamic Sunrise residents and a Korea Veteran needed to stock up again from the grocery store.  
We convinced him to stay home and let us help.

Together, Mom and Dad and their 16 and 21 year old children, showing that Sunrise Spirit!

Follow Sunrise Utilities Best Practices
With the increased toll on our utility systems during COVID-19, please follow this guidance from the South Florida Water Management District and the City of Sunrise:
  • To preserve the efficient operation of the pipes in your home as well as City wastewater systems, please think before you flush and only put toilet paper into toilets. Wipes clog pipes, and they belong in the trash along with tissues, paper towels and all other single-use disposables.
  • To conserve our natural water resources during this period of increased usage in homes and lower rainfall, please observe irrigation watering restrictions. Addresses ending in an even number (e.g. 100 Sunset Strip) should water only before 10:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. on Thursday and Sunday while odd addresses should only water before 10:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Sundays. If there are even and odd addresses on the same property, just pick two of those days and stick to that schedule.
  • No restrictions apply to other outside water uses, such as for car and boat washing, or pressure cleaning.
  • The use of water for firefighting, safety, sanitation, health, medical and other essential purposes is not restricted.
  • Report a violation to City of Sunrise Code Enforcement at (954) 572-2344.
