April 19, 2010, Davie, Florida: The next Community Meeting hosted by Town of Davie Administrator Gary Shimun is scheduled for Tuesday, May 11, 2010 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Old Davie School located at 6650 Griffin Road in District 2. All Davie residents and business owners are invited to attend and talk to the Town Administrator. This is the second in a series of four meetings each with a different venue in order to ensure that one is held in each district. The purpose of these community meetings is to have a dialog of sharing between the Town Administrator (The Town’s CEO who is responsible for the day to day operations) and the residents and the business owners of Davie. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Town accomplishments
  • budget and finance
  • services: such as code compliance, public safety, permitting, parks & recreation, public works, and housing
  • communications
  • economic development
  • citizen concerns

The meetings will be held in an open forum format so that residents and business owners can have their voices heard. Mr. Shimun would like to hear both the good and the bad. Concerns, recommendations, suggestions, commendations, and potential solutions are welcomed. Similarly, he would like to share with residents some crucial issues facing the Town, and he would like to learn firsthand how residents and business owners feel about the issues. Mr. Shimun would like to thank the Mayor and the Town Council for their suggestions and support in this endeavor.

This is a great way for you to participate in our American democracy. If you have questions, contact the Town at 954-797-1027.

Members of Town Council may be present.

Annual Waterway Cleanup Set for April 18th

EVENT: 13TH Annual Waterway Clean-Up
DATE: Saturday, April 18, 2009
TIME: 8:00am – 11:30am
PLACE: Davie Town Hall (6591 Orange Dr, Davie)
CONTACT: Bonnie Stafiej
PHONE: (954) 797-1166

The Town of Davie and the Central Broward Water Control District welcome you to participate in the 13th Annual WATERWAY CLEAN-UP, a public awareness campaign to keep our waterways clean. This event will take place on Saturday, April 18, 2009, from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. along the C-11 Canal, between State Road 7 and Flamingo Road in Davie.

What started as a group of volunteers gathering on a Saturday every year has grown into a major event involving hundreds of volunteers. Last year’s WATERWAY CLEAN-UP campaign pulled 2 tons of trash from our waterways.

We are looking for groups, families, or individual residents to help clean and pickup trash from the canal banks. We are also looking for residents with small boats to clean the canal waters. Whether you are a nonprofit group or a local family, own a boat or not, you can play a role in helping us clean Davie’s waterway.

In return for your efforts, you will receive a free Waterway Hat and a ticket for admittance to the festive party called “TRASH SPLASH.”

This year’s “TRASH SPLASH” will be held at Pine Island Park Pool, located at 3800 SW 92 Avenue, Davie. There will be free hot dogs and other refreshments. There will be a GREAT D.J. spinning tunes all afternoon. The party will start at 11:30 a.m. on the same Saturday. Everyone who cleans is invited to attend!

To participate, you must pre-register by contacting Bonnie Stafiej, Town of Davie, Special Projects Director, at (954) 797-1163 no later than April 15, 2009, or click here for an application.

For information, call our hot line at 954-797-1166.

Davie Bike Rally

My family has been in the bike rally for years. In fact, in the beginning, our youngest daughter rode in a seat on the back of my bike. Davie has some of the nicest recreational trails in South Florida. The bike rally is a great time to get acquainted with them.

As predicted in the Farmer’s Almanac, the weather held up — although it looked like rain for a while.

Map for April 4th Bike Rally.

It’s not too late to register for the Davie Bike Rally, this Saturday, April 4, 2009. Here’s the official map of the route. Actually, you can register on the morning of the rally for $3 per person, rather than the discounted amount of $2 for pre-registration.

This is a rally, not a a race. It’s intended for families as well as residents of all ages. Fancy biking clothing and other gear is not required. Dress comfortably for a leisurely ride. Helmets are required for kids, according to state law. Helmets are highly encouraged for adults.
