4/4/17: ***SEVERE FIRE DANGER THIS SUMMER***....Comparable to 1998! I was at a Board Meeting last evening and the Assistant Chief of Palatka was guest speaker. Below are things to remember: *Remove all debris from your roof/gutters; *Clear anything that will burn (garbage, debris, brush, etc.) a minimum of 50' from your home...100' is optimum; *DO NOT BURN until you call the Florida Division of Forestry - 352.395.4951; *Burn barrel is 'ok', but keep a close eye on it and have hose near by; *BE PREPARED: Have a bag prepared, including cat/dog food and bowls. Most importantly, if you do not already have a list of your medications prepared and with you, it's suggested you do that now, including dosage. Place a copy in your prepared bag and in your vehicle. *If the State/County/Fire and/or Law Enforcement mandate an evacuation - DO IT! *Take your pets with you as shelters will allow you. Leashes and crates are highly recommended; *Farm animals - if you have no time to place them elsewhere, open their pens and let them loose. Best to locate them safely rather than the alternative! These are just a few things to be aware of. As the season proceeds, I will have more updates. BE PREPARED...BE SAFE...AND DON'T FORGET YOUR MEDS AND FURRY FRIENDS!
Activities are from 10am to 5pm: Everyone is encouraged to join in the fun! WHERE: Park Entrance is located at 320 Sisco Road off Hwy 17 So. near Pomona Park. Plenty of Parking! *Live music *Bike Rides *Pony Rides *Kids Activities *Recycling Demonstrations *Comfort food by Hideaway Cafe *Old Florida Re-enactors *Guided Kayak Tours (Rental available on line at and additional information on this event)
GARBAGE: As we are all too aware, animals get into trash that is put out for Monday's pick up. It is 'usually' those residents that place bags out. I would like to remind all that it is mandatory that everyone in Pomona Park have a trash can (or more) with lids. We recommend putting your cans out early Monday morning but realize Sunday evening is more convenient for many. Further, we ask residents to remove your cans from the street area and place back up by your house Monday evenings. Our Maintenance team spends Mondays (after garbage trucks go through) picking up strewn garbage. As you can imagine, this is taxing on our team - especially with mowing season quickly approaching. We would appreciate all residents assisting us by: 1.) Placing all garbage in receptacles AND 2.) If your cans are knocked over by animals, that you pick up debris yourselves. Thank you so much for your cooperation.
