Leadership for Our Community

During my first term as councilor, we accomplished many positive changes that have enhanced our community:

  • $2.5 million in awarded grant monies through our first in-house grant writer
  • Significant improvements to water main and sewer lines at Indian Woods, Forest Avenue, and Bay Street
  • Completed the Florida Boulevard culvert project
  • Started the comprehensive engineering for major storm water improvements
  • Revitalization of Jarboe Park
  • Planted 150+ trees throughout Neptune Beach
  • Installed several of many planned pedestrian crossings and bike trails

As your representative, I fought for our quality of life:

  • Completed the city’s Comprehensive Plan and renewed land-use and zoning codes to protect our community’s future
  • Stopped the “Big Apartment Complex” at Kmart to maintain our low density
  • Sponsored moratoriums to protect from over-development and increased intensity

Priorities For The Next Term

My Supporters

I am proud to be supported by my neighbors in Neptune, Jax, and Atlantic Beaches

Good job Public Works. That’s why I love NB!

Where was this, Josh? Talk about jumping into action! I would expect this after a storm, not during it. Be safe everyone. More trees are bound to come down.

True Caring Politican at work🇺🇸💙.

Public Works: Aside from staffing the sandbag filling station, public works employees are securing sites around the City and taking care of yard debris left behind by WastePro. Residents are encouraged to report any missed yard debris to: Cheryl Bäck at: (904) 270-2400, ext. 31 or by emailing : acm@nbfl.us. Garbage cans at the beach and the parks will bepicked up first thing Wednesday Morning, and if necessary, Public Works will install hurricane doors at City Hall and other city facilities. Public Works employees continue to ensure that ditches, swales and drain inlets and outfalls are clear of debris ahead of the expected rains. Public Works can be reached at (904) 270-2423

Dangerous Debris: High winds are expected, so the City requests that all Residents secure lightweight outdoor items, like lawn furniture, yard signs, and garbage cans. If a Resident sees yard debris that hasn’t been picked up, the City would like to know by notifying Cheryl Bäck at: (904) 270-2400, ext. 31 or by emailing : acm@nbfl.us. Also, by aware that falling limbs can cause severe injury or death.

Steer Clear of Flooded Roads: There is potential for Ian to produce significant rainfall throughout Duval County and Northeast Florida, and a storm surge warning has been issued for our area. Avoid walking through deep or rushing water. If you need assistance crossing deep or moving water, please call the NBPD non-emergency number: (904) 270-2413, or 911 if an emergency.

Garbage Collection: The City is awaiting further response from WastePro about garbage collection for the City of Neptune Beach. It’s expected that WastePro will not pickup for the rest of the week, but as more information becomes available, the City will notify Residents.

City Services: To give City Hall staff time to prepare for the incoming weather at their own homes, City Hall will be closed beginning at Noon on Wednesday, all-day Thursday and Friday and is expected to reopen on Monday. The Police Department and Public Works will operate as usual until it is unsafe for staff and officers to be outside. At this time, it is believed that emergency operations will continue through the duration of the storm.

Bridge Closure: Bridges haven’t been closed at this time, but as the storm approaches they may be closed. Now is the time to take precautions and complete any business that you may have across the bridge.

Evacuation: There aren’t evacuations ordered at this time, but it is always prudent to know your evacuation route.

As more information becomes available, the City will notify Residents through AlertNeptune: www.ci.neptune-beach.fl.us/subscribe and social media.
