Broward County Mosquito Control will spray for adult mosquitoes over parts of Town of Davie and Southwest Ranches on Tuesday, June 5, 2018, weather permitting.

This aerial adulticide spraying is targeting nuisance mosquitoes usually associated with heavy rains during the summer months, and the amount of rainfall associated with the last rain events. The County is spraying because it’s received many spray requests from residents and businesses in these cities.

The aerial spraying will be conducted between the hours of 4 – 6:30 AM. Residents with breathing difficulties should remain indoors. People living in the area who have registered with the State to be alerted prior to spraying will be notified. You’ll find the map of the areas attached below.

Broward County Mosquito Control Section sprays areas of the County by truck and plane, based on requests received from residents. To request service online, complete the Mosquito Spray Request Form or call 954-765-4062.

Residents are the first line of defense when it comes to combatting any mosquito. You’ll find detailed information on our website.

Our Partnership with the Dan Marino Foundation

The Broward County Property Appraiser’s Office is excited to partner with the Dan Marino Foundation to host a meaningful internship program for adult students with developmental disabilities. This intern initiative was designed to provide eight students with on-site practical experience and training in areas related to their specific field of study.
Utilizing the valuable skills learned during the internship, the interns working in our Customer Service Department are now able to assist homeowners with processing exemptions and researching exemption eligibility. Under the guidance of one of our Customer Service Representatives, one of our interns helped property owners file for Homestead Exemption and explained the benefits of this important tax-saving exemption. The interns in our IT Department work with our staff setting up computers, replacing toner cartridges throughout the office, backing up data files and answering help desk requests from our appraisers. Our Residential Department is fortunate to have two interns who have been researching property information to assist our Value Adjustment Board team. With supervision, these interns have been pulling comparable sale information and researching characteristics of various comparable properties. After compiling this data, they organize the information into packets for our team members to review and approve, and then use as they prepare for Value Adjustment Board hearings.
BCPA is fortunate to have each of these interns and their job coach working side-by-side our staff through a hands-on approach to gain valuable job skills. Our sincere appreciation to the Dan Marino Foundation for partnering with BCPA on this important endeavor. My staff and I look forward to continuing this partnership.

Exciting News Coming from Our IT Department

Our IT Department has been hard at work developing a new and improved website. This website will be responsive to both tablets and phones meaning you will have access to important property information wherever you may be. The website will still contain all the important information you are accustomed to but include modern search features, easy to use applications and additional data specific to each property. We are in the testing phase of this website and will be sending it out to various stakeholders in the community for beta testing in the coming weeks.

If my office can ever be of assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 954.357.6904 or by email at martykiar@bcpa.net.

Broward County has launched the lifesaving Yellow Dot safety program. The program is designed to assist Broward County residents and first responders in the event of an automobile crash or other medical emergency involving the participant’s vehicle. The program can help save lives by improving communication at a time when accident victims may be unable to communicate for themselves.
