Councilman Schaffer Offers this Message to the Residents...
As Hurricane Matthew approaches S. Florida, I urge Village residents to conclude their hurricane preparedness. Palmetto Bay officials have effectively organized hurricane preparation planning and are monitoring the storm. If you have not yet prepared for the storm, a good source of hurricane preparedness information is the Village's Disaster Preparedness page and Hurricane Preparedness brochure.
Please be safe and attentive to the progress of the storm.
