POST IRMA - LETTER FROM MAYOR M. BLACK
Residents and Community Members of Madeira Beach,
First, I would also like to thank Madeira Beach’s Acting City Manager, Derryl O’Neal and all of the City staff, fire department, and volunteers who have done an outstanding job of keeping our City on an even keel before, during, and after Hurricane Irma. I would also like to send a huge thank you to the deputies who secured our evacuation route and allowed for re-entry.
Also, a big thank you to the residents and businesses of Madeira Beach who followed the evacuation orders to stay safe. We appreciate your patience during the re-entry period. I know everyone was anxious to return. Pinellas County Sheriff’s Offices control the time in which return is possible to Madeira Beach. In this case they had to delay re-entry until streets were cleared and it was safe to return.
We are so grateful that at the last minute Irma shifted eastward and we avoided a hurricane that could have caused major devastated our City. Madeira Beach was extremely fortunate that we weren’t hit as hard as expected and the storm surge remained minimal. However, my heart goes out for those of you who had damage.
But one thing is clear… Madeira Beach is strong! When people are in are need, we come together and unite as a team. Speaking of helping people, Save On Seafood (next to the Marina on 150th Ave. just before the bridge) are nice enough to be giving away ice…donations only…just bring a cooler.
Mayor Maggi Black
Sea Turtle Season: May 1 – October 31, 2017
Loggerhead sea turtles visit the West Coast of Florida and our Gulf Beaches each year between April and October to lay their nests. Only the mother turtle actually crawl onto the beach, usually under the cover & protection of darkness, to lay 80-120 eggs in a nest. You will see these nests marked off to protect them from human activity. You can help protect our nesting sea turtles and other wildlife by leaving our beaches:
CLEAN – Leave no trash or beach furniture/toys on the beach overnight – this is required by the City’s ‘Leave No Trace’ ordinance.
FLAT – Sea turtles are made to swim, hence crawling on the beach is an effort. Please fill in all holes and flatten your sand castles.
DARK – Sea turtles and hatchlings navigate by the stars and moons reflection off the water. Flashlights, camera flashes, and building lights can disorient the turtles away from the sea.
All sea turtles and marine life are protected by law. Do not interfere with or disturb nesting turtles or hatchlings.
