Snell Isle Alerts

COYOTE SIGHTINGS

I’ve seen 2 reports on Snell Isle regarding coyote sitings. We’ve had a fairly long time without hearing about them but we all know, they make their mark by killing small pets and other small wildlife. The open “range” of the Vinoy Golf Course provides them the space they need and they also travel to other “open” areas like the Masonic Home. Please make sure you protect your pets so they don’t become a victim. Coyotes can run like gazelles and jump 6’ fences with no trouble at all. Remember too that if you encounter one, make yourself as large as possible flailing your arms and making loud noises like clanging pots, blowing a whistle, spraying towards them with a garden hose, etc. are the best ways to make them move away. Don’t turn your back on them and certainly don’t leave small children or pets outside without adult supervision. Normally they won’t “attack” humans unless you come between them and their pups.

The information below concerns yet ANOTHER type wildlife problem we don’t want or need, the invasive tegus that has been spotted in Pinellas County. Please read the Public Information Alert from Pinellas County Government below.

Also, remember to keep those doors and windows locked at all times and all valuables out of sight. And I surely hope you have those masks at the ready for your use when in public. Please stay well and safe! We’re all in this together!

The Virtual Discover Your PATHe program is a great opportunity for students to learn about opportunities available for them after high school. During various interactive workshops, they will learn about ACT and SAT prep, the college admissions process, financial aid resources, and more. They will also have an opportunity to connect with other local high school and college students. This program will also host several parent/family sessions on August 1st, which will focus on how family members can best support and prepare for the college journey.

Watering Restrictions

City of St. Petersburg Marketing Department St. Petersburg's Watering Restrictions

Due to drought conditions and increased demand for water, it’s important now more than ever to follow St. Pete’s year-round watering restrictions and eliminate wasteful and unnecessary water uses.

Customers with potable, private well and surface water sources may water twice weekly, between the hours of 5 to 9 a.m. and/or 7 to 11 p.m.

• Addresses ending in an even number may irrigate on Tuesdays and Saturdays only.

• Addresses ending in an odd number and locations with no address may irrigate on Wednesdays and Sundays only.

Customers with reclaimed water are encouraged to water no more than three times per week, between the hours of 5 to 9 a.m. or 7 to 11 p.m.

Unnecessary and wasteful uses of water are always prohibited. Examples include hosing down driveways and impervious surfaces, allowing water to flow unattended and using water inefficiently. Additionally, customers are required to test irrigation systems for leaks and inefficiencies.

More stringent watering restrictions may be temporarily put into place if conditions worsen. Find St. Pete’s current local watering restrictions at stpete.org/wateringrestrictions
