                   Hurricane Preparedness 

First and foremost - HEED THE WARNINGS of your Beverly Beach and County officials!  If an evacuation order is given, do not hesitate; be ready to go and have a plan in place.  As many residents learned during Hurricane Matthew in October 2016, it is very unwise to "ride it out" this close to the ocean.  If a washout occurs on SR A1A, you could be stranded and it will become extremely difficult for emergency responders to reach you, as well as putting them in danger.

IF YOU ARE NEW TO FLORIDA it is particularly imperative that you be educated about hurricanes, preparation, and strategies for post-storm recovery.  Hurricanes are extremely unpredictable and can turn suddenly, drastically changing the impact in a very short time.  Tips for planning an evacuation plan:

1. Your first priority is to have standard emergency supplies stocked at your home (non-perishable food for you and any pets for five to seven days; bottled water/one gallon per day per person; an emergency first aid kit; a non-electric can opener; disposable plates and utensils for eating; snacks; a propane cooking device; as much ice as you can store once the storm is imminent).  Tip:  if you have a chest type freezer, fill one- and two-liter bottles 3/4 full with water and freeze in advance.  They will help keep other items cold and as they melt they provide fresh, cold water.


2. Put all your important medicines and prescriptions in a water-tight container and be sure to keep it with you at all times, along with a comprehensive list of your doctors and their contact information, and a detailed medical summary if you have various conditions that would be important for first responders and emergency personnel to know.

3. Have plenty of seasonally appropriate clothing, including rain gear, hats, sturdy shoes and/or boots.  Think "Survivor Beverly Beach" when planning!  Be sure to include towels, toiletries, and hygiene items, as well as a good working flashlight, extra batteries, and a battery operated radio.

4. Take photographs of your home and property, especially any valuable or important items that you cannot take with you if evacuated.  They will be critical in the event of an insurance claim or request for FEMA assistance.

5. Have all insurance and other important documents (medical records, banking, social security, etc.) in a water-tight container and keep it with you at all times, along with your medications.  Hold on to anything that would be difficult to replace (passports, driver licenses, property deeds, or anything that you might ordinarily keep in a safe deposit box).

6. Have plenty of CASH on hand in a safe place.  When the electricity goes out, so do the banks and ATM's!!!  And while you are out getting cash, FILL THE TANK OF YOUR CAR.  Don't wait until an evacuation order is issued - be ready to go.  Leading up to last year's storm, MANY stations were completely out of gas even a couple of days prior to the storm, and all were disabled by power outages during and after the storm.

The Town Hall has copies of a Disaster Preparedness guide with much more valuable information about shelters, boat safety, animal and pet concerns, etc.  Please stop by and pick one up, or visit the link at the top of this column to see the guide on the County web site!

It is dangerous to procrastinate.  It is dangerous to remain in place when evacuation has been ordered!!  Be prepared, be smart, be safe!  Be neighborly to those who may be alone or have mobility and health issues. Make sure they are aware of evacuation orders.  

People with special needs should contact the Town Hall for instructions on registering for the special shelter operated by the County for that segment of our population.

If you have e-mail, be sure to give it to the Town Clerk so you can be on the emergency notification list for instructions!  Many heartaches can be avoided with solid prior planning and cooperating with local officials.

                               "PERMITTING 101"
                KNOW THE RULES AND GUIDELINES
                   BEFORE YOU START A PROJECT


WARNING:  Do not hire unlicensed/uninsured contractors for work requiring a permit!  Always insist on seeing their licensing in writing and never pay more than a nominal deposit for a job up front!  When in doubt, CHECK WITH THE TOWN HALL.  It may sound attractive to get the work done "cheaper" but you run many risks, AND it can be a felony charge against the contractor!

The Town Hall tries to keep our citizens informed, involved, and up-to-date on newly passed Ordinances, Resolutions, or other county or state laws that have an impact on how we all conduct our day-to-day business. Still, residents often say they are not aware of certain Code changes or Resolutions passed by the Commission that may be applicable to them, whether it is permitting, requesting a variance hearing, or having what may be classified as a "special event or activity."

Don't be caught in a tricky situation! When in doubt, call the Town Hall or stop by to ask if you need a permit, a variance, or just to confirm that none is needed. This is especially important for any work done that may need approval by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection or the St. John's River Water Management District!

Nearly ALL exterior work needs a building permit, whether it is replacement windows, installation of a new HVAC unit, a new roof, or an addition to an existing structure. Residents of Surfside Estates have additional community guidelines and should check with the office.

There are "setback" restrictions throughout Beverly Beach, and those guidelines are different for Surfside Estates and homes in Sunset Inlet. Often, if a homeowner wishes to erect a fence, a variance hearing may be necessary due to the width of the lot and the width of the setback restrictions.

Interior work MAY need a building permit,
depending on the scope of the work. Generally, ALL electrical, HVAC, and plumbing work must be permitted. Extensive interior renovations will probably require permitting and inspection.

For building and construction permits, please contact the Building Department at the City of Flagler Beach.  They manage ALL permitting, fees, plan reviews, and inspections for Beverly Beach through an Interlocal Contract.  Their office is located on the back (south) side of the Flagler Beach City Hall, just off SR A1A on 3rd Street (turn at the Bank of America).  Speak with Marlene Beams, the Permitting Technician, or you can call her at 386.517.2000 Ext. 232.

                           SPECIAL EVENTS

Any
event that is open to the public in which you anticipate attendance in excess of 100 people, OR you will have amplified sound, OR there is a reasonable anticipation of needing traffic control, sanitary facilities, or health and fire inspections will most likely require an Application for a Special Event/Activity which requires an application fee and hearing before the Commission 60 days in advance of the event.

The Town is gradually moving forward and the Town Commission and Mayor are working toward a goal of more effectively abiding by – and being guided by – our Charter and Code. Again - stay informed and when in doubt, just give us a call or stop by! By being proactive, the Town's daily workings will run smoothly and further enhance this great little piece of the world called Beverly Beach.

Copies of all Ordinances, Resolutions, Planning and Zoning Hearings, and Commission Meetings are available for inspection or copying at the Town Hall during normal working hours. Just ask.  OR ** all new ** - view the Code online at the following link:
