Crime Prevention and Safety Tips
- Remove valuables from your cars and keep the doors locked. Utilize the alarm system and secure your home in your absence. An open garage door is an advertisement of the property stored within and provides an easy access point to the rest of the house. Make sure your garage door is closed completely and that it is opened only when necessary.
- Going on vacation? Call your Police Department. They will check the property periodically while you are gone and notify your specified emergency contact(s) if any problems are found. Arrange for your mail, newspapers and delivered packages to be picked up daily.
Fire and Rescue
The Town contracts with the City of Delray Beach for Fire and Emergency Medical Service. For emergencies, always call 911. For non-emergencies, the Delray Beach Fire Rescue Department can be reached at (561) 243-7400.
Billing for water services is provided through the Town. Please call the Town Hall, (561) 276-5116, if you have any questions regarding your bill. New residents should call Town Hall to advise the Town that you are the new owner of the property and will be responsible for the water bill. By doing so, proper changes may be made to the resident list to ensure that you receive your bill in a timely fashion.
Electrical service is provided within the Town by Florida Power and Light (FPL). FPL can be contacted online or by phone at (561) 994-8227.
Communication Services are offered by several providers. AT&T/BellSouth (1-888-333-6651 for new service and 1-800-331-0500 for customer support) and Comcast (1-800-266-2278) offer telephone, internet and television services to the Town.
Solid Waste Disposal
The Town currently has a franchise agreement with Waste Management, which provides for “back-door” garbage pick up on Wednesday and Saturday east of the Intracoastal Waterway and in Place Au Soleil. It is not necessary to carry your garbage curbside.
In order to maintain the community’s appearance on garbage days, please leave the garbage just outside the side door or garage door. You can also designate an enclosed area just beside the garage and inform Waste Management of its location (561) 547-4000. Recycling pick-up is on Saturday east of the Intracoastal and in Place Au Soleil. Non-dumpster residents will be billed bi-monthly by the Town.
Please contact Waste Management for large vegetative and bulk pickup. Homeowners may be billed separately by Waste Management for bulk pick-up per cubic yard.
