GLIMPSES OF NEPTUNE BEACH

A friendly reminder for our Neptune Beach residents and visitors…keep your car doors locked!  
Keep your car doors locked at all times when unattended. The Neptune Beach Police Department has recently received numerous reports of items being stolen from vehicles which were simply left unlocked. We pride ourselves on the quaint, residential nature of our beachside City. However, there is always the possibility, and reality, that others will take advantage of this perception of small-town safety. So remember…keep your valuables protected and keep your car doors locked.

NOTE FROM THE MAYOR: As the Mayor of Neptune Beach, I often hear from many of our citizens regarding their concerns and ideas about our fine city. And as Mayor, I continue to encourage any resident or business owner to contact me with anything they deem necessary. But I also encourage you to come before the City Council at our regularly scheduled workshop or full council meeting to speak up. Only when heard by the entire Council can a concern or idea be given the full attention that it warrants. Your Council and your Mayor want to hear from you.

Garbage and Sanitation Changes
Effective 1/08/2013

The Neptune Beach City Council has updated the Garbage Ordinance.

The following changes may affect you:
1. One secured plastic bag may be placed curbside no earlier than 6:00 am on your assigned day of collection in front of the respective residence.
2. Garbage cans shall not be placed at curbside for pickup before 7:00 pm the night before the assigned day of collection and shall have a secured lid. The cans must be placed in front of the respective residence.
3. Garbage cans, recycle bins, and other waste containers shall be removed from curbside no later than 10:00 pm on the assigned day of collection. They cannot be stored in a front yard or corner side yard.
4. Garbage cans placed at curbside the night before pickup must have a secured lid.
5. Yard debris from private contractor's work shall be disposed of by the contractor at a legal dump site. Contractor's waste will not be picked up by the City.
6. Yard debris (except for trees, tree limbs, and palm fronds) shall be bagged and tied securely. Yard debris that is blown, swept, washed or placed into public or private roadways or alleys or onto adjacent properties or not bagged or properly disposed of is a civil action which may be cited.
7. Tree and tree limbs cuttings may not exceed 5 feet except for palm fronds.
8. Disabled individuals may call the City at 904-270-2400 for pickup arrangements of their garbage.

Please Note: Failure to adhere to these rules may result in a civil citation or notice to appear before the Code Enforcement Magistrate.

Once a Tropical Storm or Hurricane Warning or Watch has been issued for our area, please adhere to the following:
    • Do not cut down trees or do major yard work.
    • Do not begin construction projects that produce debris.
    • Once a watch or warning has been issued do not trim
      vegetation of any kind. Mass cutting places a 
      tremendous burden on the normal collection process and
      there is not enough equipment or manpower to collect
      the additional material before the storm makes landfall.
    • Do not take material, of any
kind, to the curb during a
      watch or warning period.

Failure to adhere to the above safety requirements will lead to Code Enforcement Action and the possibility of major fines.


                            WASTE & RECYCLING:
Garbage collection will be collected curbside beginning October 4, 2010. All collection days for garbage, yard waste and recycling will remain the same. For pick-up, all cans must be placed on the right-of-way in front of your house on collection days by 7:00 AM and removed from the curb by 7:00 PM. This change is necessary to avoid cost increases for these services until at least 2013. For additional information please click on the Waste Pro Logo.
                           

The City of Neptune Beach is a community of 7,500 residents located in Duval County on a barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west. The primary focus of the community is to protect the residential nature of the City and to maintain its high quality of life through strict growth management standards. Neptune Beach comprises approximately 2.5 square miles and is bounded by the City of Atlantic Beach to the north and the City of Jacksonville Beach to the south.

The name Neptune Beach has origins dating back to the year 1922 when Dan Wheeler built his own train station next to his home and named it Neptune. Mr. Wheeler had been informed that if he were to build a station, the train would be required to stop. The construction of the station eliminated his walking to Mayport in order to take the train to work in Jacksonville. The station was located where the Sea Turtle Inn is now located.

The area remained a part of Jacksonville Beach until the tax revolt of 1931, when on August 11, the residents of Neptune voted 113 to 31 to secede from Jacksonville Beach and incorporate the City of Neptune Beach.

The City operates under a City Manager-Council form of government. Residents elect a Mayor and four additional City Councilors which make up the City Council. The Council is responsible for enacting ordinances and resolutions which govern the City. The mayor presides over the council meetings. The City Council appoints a City Manager who serves as the chief executive officer and is charged with the enforcement of all ordinances and resolutions passed by the City Council. The Chief of Police, Public Services Director and Finance Director are appointed by the City Manager.
