The North Bay Village Police Department is embracing sustainability with the rollout of the first of seven new 2023 Ford SUV Hybrid Police Interceptors. The first vehicle has been assigned to Neighborhood Resource Officer Jessica Polanco. The next vehicles will be assigned to police patrol and the K-9 unit.

North Bay Village has been awarded $2 million dollars in funding from the Biscayne Bay Water Quality Improvement Grant Program for the Harbor Island Outfall Improvement Project. Governor Ron DeSantis allocates $20 million to enhance water quality in the Bay, with NBV receiving $2 million for immediate installation of baffle boxes at 13 outfall locations on Harbor Island. This pilot project aims to assess the effectiveness of baffle boxes in reducing pollutants, sediment, and suspended solids in stormwater discharge, contributing to the overall health of Biscayne Bay's ecosystem. The initiative aligns with NBV's commitment to community improvement and follows their recently completed stormwater master plan.

In a commitment to safeguard the public health, safety, and welfare of our community members, guests, and marine life, North Bay Village implemented Ordinance 103.5.01, which prohibits the release of balloons in our community.

Week 4
The Village has completed cleaning and jetting of our storm drain basins and lines, ensuring they are now debris-free. This thorough maintenance ensures that our storm drains are clean and reduces flood risk. Notably, the two troublesome storm drain lines on Beachview Drive underwent triple cleaning to ensure they remain unobstructed.

Week 3
The Village celebrates a major success with the installation of high-tech storm inlet screens, a collaboration with SOP Technologies. These patented filters, funded by a state appropriation, effectively combat ocean pollution, prevent street flooding, and reduce global stormwater management costs. Positioned strategically, the filters block debris from entering Biscayne Bay. Community members can contribute by reporting inlet misuse and logging pollutants through QR codes near the filters using their cell phones, fostering environmental protection and community engagement.
