Urgent Notice from Seacoast Utility Authority

Notice from Seacoast Utility Authority Up to nine residential properties at 612, 622, 624, and 630 Bayberry Drive and 715 and 717 Silver Beach Road have been affected by a major sewer backup. While the blockage has been cleared, several of these properties are entirely uninhabitable at present.

A Seacoast representative is on the scene addressing resident concerns. Seacoast has dispatched multiple cleaning and sanitizing contractors to the site, and Seacoast staff is presently arranging hotel accommodations for residents who cannot stay in their homes. Our field representative is providing all affected residents with the cell phone number of Seacoast’s Director of Administrative Services who will respond (through the weekend) to any concerns that arise while the properties are being restored.

Staff is notifying Seacoast’s insurance carrier, but for the moment, the primary concern is for the health and safety of the residents. We anticipate that cleanup work will continue into the weekend.

Please contact me if you have any questions.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS RESOURCES

The Town of Lake Park participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a federal program administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that enables property owners to purchase insurance protection against flooding losses.  Since Lake Park properly manages a floodplain Ordinance, the Town’s home and business owners are eligible to participate in NFIP and are eligible for a discount on flood insurance. 

 

NFIP coverage is available to all owners of insurable property, including buildings and/or contents; owners and renters may insure their personal property; and builders of buildings in the course of construction, condominium associations, and owners of residential condominium units.  A policy may be purchased from any licensed property insurance agent or broker in good standing with the state or through any agent representing a Write Your Own (WYO) company.
