NORTH PORT — Due to the amount of rain that North Port has received, the city is behind in its mowing schedule of public rights-of-way areas and expects to be back on track by November, city officials reported Monday. The Department of Public Works routinely mows city rights of way adjacent to roadways, waterways, lakes, drainage swales, storm water retention ponds and ditches. The rainy season during the summer months, coupled with the recent storm surge, has elevated water levels in the water bodies and also in the open swale system throughout the city, officials said. Because the higher water table has contributed to thicker grass growth in these areas, the city is a month behind in mowing the rights of way.
The city expects to be back on schedule by Nov. 1. Those with questions or comments should contact Public Works Customer Service at 941-240-8050 or email RDCustomerService@cityofnorthport.com.
