The Town’s Public Works Department conducts both fall and Spring Maintenance periods, which lowers Town’s lagoon water levels for one-week time in order to give our crews time to complete necessary repairs and maintenance. This maintenance period also serves as an opportunity for property owners to perform any necessary maintenance or repairs on their private docks while the water levels are at their lowest.
The spring maintenance period is scheduled to begin the first Sunday of April, for one week, Sunday 04/02/2023 through Sunday 04/9/2023. If you live in an effected neighborhood and plan to perform any dock repairs, please be advised of the following:
Property owners or licensed contractors are responsible for obtaining Town issued Building Permits, Erosion/Sediment Control Permits, and Floodplain Development Permits prior to the repair, modification, or replacement of any dock, deck or footings extending from private property and encroaching into the lagoon. A building permit application with incorporated plans must be reviewed, approved, and issued prior to commencement of any work.

If you intend to submit for a building permit for a dock repair or replacement in anticipation of the maintenance schedule, now is the time to submit your application and plans to the Town. Minor maintenance involving painting or staining are exempt from permits. If you have any questions regarding building permit requirements, please contact the Town’s Building Department at 415-927-5062 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
