The Stormwater, Pavement and Traffic Operations Department maintains the City's drainage, sidewalks, roadways and traffic signal systems. The department also performs street sweeping, maintains pavement markings and provides regulatory and advisory roadway signage.
Increased rainfall in the summer months can cause nutrients from fertilizer to reach water bodies and lead to environmental issues like algae blooms, fish kills and water quality problems. To prevent this, the citywide fertilizer ban is in effect June 1 - September 30.
Here are some eco-friendly tips:
- Treat your lawn with a slow-release fertilizer in the spring or fertilizer-free micronutrients in the summer to keep your lawn happy all summer.
- Pick up any debris or vegetation near storm drains year-round to keep it from entering our waterways.
- Follow a no-mow zone six feet from any water body, helping to establish a protective barrier.
- Make sure your lawn maintenance/landscaper is certified through Pinellas County.
- Replace some or all of your lawn with Florida-friendly natives.

Ordinance No. 920-G requires the City to collect and manage stormwater. Fees are charged to pay for this collection and to develop a future drainage system that will protect our environment and keep our streets from flooding during heavy rains. The fee you are charged is based on the amount of impervious surface at your property, or the square footage that does not allow rain to be absorbed into the ground. All utility customers pay a monthly stormwater fee, regardless of whether or not other services on the property have been discontinued.
