Reminder: KBPD to Begin Scheduling

Golf Cart Registration Renewals

Golf Cart.jpg

As of June 1, 2021, the Key Biscayne Police Department will begin contacting golf cart owners to facilitate the process of renewing registration for each vehicle in an orderly fashion.

 

During this process, the KBPD will not hold residents accountable for driving with expired registrations as the department works with the community to return to normal operations.

 

Residents who have never had their golf carts registered with the police due to COVID-19 are asked to please contact the police department at 305-365-5555 or to visit the police station to begin the initial registration process.

 

Per the Key Biscayne municipal code, annual golf cart registration is required to ensure driver's are aware of regulations and that each cart passes a safety inspection. Carts that do not pass the inspection will not receive a renewed registration until they are repaired.

 

The Key Biscayne Police Department appreciates your patience during this process

Fertilizer "Rainy Season" begins,

restricting the use of fertilizers through October 31

green-2432374_1920.jpg

May 15 marked the beginning of the rainy season in Miami-Dade County, as defined by the Fertilizer Ordinance that was passed by the Board of County Commissioners on April 20.


During this season, residents, landscape companies, and condominium associations, among others, are prohibited from using fertilizer. The ordinance comes as one of the key recommendations from the 2020 Biscayne Bay Task Force Report to improve the health of Biscayne Bay.


Fertilizer runoff was shown as one of the top contributors to last year’s fish kill in Biscayne Bay, along with rising temperatures and lack of oxygen. The rainy season is in effect through October 31.


Residents can expect an educational campaign through social media and community events sponsored by the County to promote the importance of the fertilizer ordinance and to learn how to comply with the regulations. Learn more about the new Florida-friendly fertilizer ordinance.
