The Destin Log

Each property owner is responsible for maintaining the right of way adjacent to their property. Property owners with a corner lot have two sections of right of way to maintain. This includes moving of the grass, litter removal and the trimming of both trees and shrubs. It also includes keeping stormwater structures such as drain box grates and inlets clear of debris. Pine straw is a big contributor to blocking stormwater structures, it can completely block grates and pipes stopping the low of water causing flooding.
