What is Key Colony Beach? If you are a full time resident, seasonal resident or visitor, you know what a special place this is. Not only are you enjoying a tropical paradise, you are among a great group of people that have kept this little island city the “Gem of the Florida Keys” for more than 60 years. We do ask that our residents and visitors protect our beautiful reef environment, the safety of each other and our friendly tropical lifestyle. Our famous sign, “Honestly now, what’s your hurry?” is not just a reminder that you are off the highway, it is an invitation to enjoy our city, by slowing down on land and in our canals; to “share the road” with our many pedestrians, canal boaters, paddlers, swimmers and manatees. Thank you! – Mayor John DeNeale

The last year has seen many challenges overcome by our city. This has not gone unnoticed by our neighbors. The City of Key Colony Beach won the “2018 Best neighborhood in Marathon” award by the Weekly paper and the Rotary. This is, of course, because of you, our great city staff, and boards and committees. Here are some of the headlines over the last several months: – We are still working through a very difficult process with the State and FEMA on a determination on whether we will repair our city hall or replace it. Also, for reimbursements to cover cleanup and other infrastructure losses. We are receiving new police cars, pickup trucks and other equipment for public works damaged by Irma; – The independent engineering firm we hired to evaluate city hall has determined that the center section between Marble Hall and the Building Department must be vacated due to structural damage to the substructure that is also stressing the walls and ceilings. For the time being, the administrative staff and police will be in trailers. We have also ordered a very nice bathroom trailer to support functions at city hall to include Marble Hall. There is a temporary set at city hall for the next several weeks. – Our sewer plant upgrades and renovations are almost complete with the plant working within design specifications and Advanced Water Treatment (AWT) standards. Thank the utility board members when you see them for their hard work on this project. – Our Beautification Committee and public works staff are working hard to have many more Christmas decorations up this year and need your help decorating. Look for an e-mail and a posting on our website from the City announcing the date. – We will be posting on our City website a summary of the very informative articles by the Weekly newspaper on the State’s directive to stop new home construction in the Keys by 2023 website. If you have not read these, please go to their website, https://keysweekly.com/42/what-happens-in/. Key Colony Beach has about 22 permits for construction of new homes remaining in our allocation from the State. Our Commission’s number one State issue is to increase this allocation. – Sunset Park renovations have started up again now that Corky Spehrley is back. Mike Alexander and Ted Fisher are working hard on the Pickleball project. – Finally, we have a new Tip Line, you can call, text or e-mail information on non-emergency code violations at any time. The number is 305-432-0086 or e-mail email@example.com. If you wish to remain anonymous, just dial *67 prior to your call or text. If you are not on the City’s e-mail list for announcements and important documents, please sign up at our website and stay informed.
