Manatee Season Runs Annually from November 15 through March 31

As air and water temperature drop, manatees begin moving south toward warm-water refuges while seasonal and manatee protection speed limit zones go into effect throughout the State. Broward County’s Marine Section implements the county’s manatee conservation program and cautions boaters to be on the lookout for greater numbers of manatees throughout the County’s waterways (including the Intracoastal Waterway and side canals) during the cooler months.

​Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program

PACE allows property owners to receive up-front financing and repayment of debt for qualifying improvements, such as energy conservation, renewable energy, and wind resistance. Property owners then repay the upfront financing through annual PACE assessments on their property tax bills. More information can be viewed here.​​
