The first collection of storm debris is almost complete throughout the County. Please have all Hurricane Irma related storm debris (vegetation and building material) placed in an accessible location of the nearest public road right-of-way prior to Monday, November 13, 2017. The collection crews and monitoring company will be clearing each roadway as a final pass after that date. Any material placed in the right of way after the collection day beyond that date will not be collected as part of the Storm Debris Program. Residents must dispose of material as part of the normal garbage collection program once the right-of-way is cleared. Please also note: · It is estimated the final pickup will last until December 15th, 2017. · Vegetation and building materials will continue to be collected separately and may occur on different days. · Do not place storm debris in bags. Bags are not allowed in the vegetation debris and vegetation is not allowed in the C&D landfill pile. · Try to avoid placing material under power lines, trees, or near any other structures such as telephone boxes, mail boxes, fences, or drainage facilities. · Material must be along public road right-of-way unless they are in approved private community right-of-way. The program will not pick up from roads/driveways on private property or easements. Residents on private road easements are responsible for bringing their material to the public roadway for collection. · At this time, the County is not authorized to collect debris on State or US roadways (FDOT). · Only debris from residential or public areas is eligible for collection. Commercial properties are responsible for arrangement of their own debris removal. · Please report any illegal dumping or dumping by commercial contractors of debris not originating from adjacent property in the right-of-way. Report these activities to local law enforcement officials immediately. · This program is for Hurricane Irma Storm Debris only. Material that is not considered storm debris is not included. · This program must adhere to FEMA requirements to be eligible for reimbursement of expenses. · Please remember to keep a safe distance from the collection vehicles while stopped collecting and while driving. We appreciate residents complying with these requests as this will help speed up the collection efforts and help restore our community back to the wonderful place we all know and love!

Extra Law Enforcement Presence in LP on Tuesday Nov 7th. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Lake Placid Police Department along with other law enforcement agencies from DeSoto, Glades, Hendry, Highlands, and Okeechobee counties will be participating in a mock child abduction exercise/training on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, to exercise the region's Child Abduction Response Team (CART) capabilities. The Fort Myers Regional Operations Center (FMROC) CART is comprised of members from state, local and federal agencies from the following 10 counties: Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Lee, Collier, Highlands, DeSoto, Hendry, Okeechobee and Glades. The goal is to be prepared to quickly respond when a child is abducted or missing under suspicious circumstances. This exercise/training will test the responses of the FMROC EAST CART members and train local law enforcement on the Florida Amber Alert system, command post operations, lead assignments, search and rescue efforts, and crime scene. The exercise will take place at the Lake Placid Police Department and the Lake Placid Genesis Center. Residents and businesses near the location may notice an increased law enforcement presence on November 7. The exercise/training will be held from 8:00 am till 12:00 pm.

We are transitioning into No Shave November from our first month of joining the fight against cancer by observing Octobers cancer awareness. Every officer at the Lake Placid Police Department is taking part in this effort. We are asking for the community and business owners to partner with us as "Battle Buddies" by donating to help families in the community that need a bit of assistance. Driving to doctor visits can become expensive, especially when some are not able to work. With your donation, 100% goes directly to local Highlands Co families. Thank you to all who have donated so far. We have been able to bless a couple families already.

Thank you to all the folks who donated candy for this year Halloween event. It is well protected by our undercover officer so no one gets into it.

Deputies are currently searching for seventeen year old Anthony Paramoshin. Anthony is autistic and left his home on Wightman Avenue on foot this afternoon. He was wearing a white shirt with blue writing on front, is about five feet seven inches tall and has brown hair. If anyone has any information on his whereabouts or thinks they may have located him, please call the sheriff's office at 863-402-7235. Thank you.

Reminder for tomorrow. If you have household hazardous waste, now is the time to rid yourself of it.

PSA.... When opening a sealed bag of candy, this was found inside. Luckily no one was harmed. However, if someone would have quickly reached into the bag, they could have been seriously cut. Be very careful. I am sure this was an accident from the shipping department of the candy company.

Thank you Jeri Canale of Boom-Booms Guns & Ammo and all the ladies who attended our Women's Self-Defense class last night. Your generous donation will go directly into our Beards Against Cancer fund to help those in our community who could use a hand. Again, Thank you
