Want to recycle?

Posted on 04 May 2021 by JLusk

Deerfield canceled their free recycling because it was too expensive, but now residents have a new alternative. They can pay $12/ month to have a service where they can put their items in a bag provided by the company and have them picked up. People can cancel at any time and it is co-mingled and single stream. They are not starting the program in Deerfield until at least 100 people sign up… For more details, visit https://recyclops.com/locations/

Shotspotter alert leads to arrests, seizure of guns, ammo–Pompano

Posted on 09 April 2021 by JLusk

For the second time in a week, a ShotSpotter alert proved invaluable in helping Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies make multiple arrests and seize a weapon and ammunition. 
 
At approximately 1:38 a.m. on Thursday, April 8, BSO deputies responded to a ShotSpotter alert of gunfire in the 200 block of Northwest 12th Court in Pompano Beach. ShotSpotter recorded at least three shots being fired. No 911 calls were placed to Broward County Regional Communications advising of the gunfire. Combining superior technology on the ground with critical law enforcement capability in the air, BSO’s Aviation Unit hovered in the sky and saw an individual remove a gun from his waistband and hand it to another man. That man then hid the gun in some bushes. 
 
Deputies on the ground immediately detained several individuals. Other deputies located the gun, which contained more than a dozen rounds in an extended magazine and had the serial number filed off. Spent shell casings were also recovered. 
 
A total of four individuals were arrested. Patrick Horak and Johnson Ducaste are facing charges for possession of an altered firearm. Joshua Washington was arrested on a warrant for armed carjacking, and Dylan Losey was arrested for violating his probation. 
 
No one was reported injured in the gunfire.

Deerfield to Launch New Online Bill Pay System

Posted on 05 April 2021 by JLusk

 
 
The City of Deerfield Beach will launch a new online bill pay system on April 7. The city believes the new Paymentus system is an improvement for residents who pay utilities, building permits, business taxes, and other fees online through echeck payments, credit, or debit cards.
 
Residents should expect the login portal to look different from the previous Click2Gov portal. Utility payments made through the new Paymentus system will automatically post at the end of each business day, updating customer account information. Credit card payments made for Building Permits or Business Tax will register and be posted to the system the following business day.
 
During this transition, credit card payments for parking stickers, parking tickets, fire inspections and miscellaneous fees only WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FROM April 7 – April 21. During this time, payments must be made via cash or check at the City Hall cashier until the system is fully operational and tested. Credit card payments for these items will be taken after April 21.
 
The city would like to apologize for any inconvenience to customers as it makes this transition. To view the instructional videos, click the link below.
 
 
 
For more information, questions or concerns, contact Customer Service at 954-480-4279, option two.
