Boil Water Notice Rescinded


On 07/22/2021, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality required the City of Shoreacres public water system, TX 1010207, to issue a Boil Water Notice to inform customers, individuals, or employees that due to conditions which occurred recently in the public water system, the water from this public water system was required to be boiled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes.

The public water system has taken the necessary corrective actions to restore the quality of the water distributed by this public water system used for drinking water or human consumption purposes and has provided TCEQ with laboratory test results that indicate that the water no longer requires boiling prior to use as of 07/24/2022.

If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact John Lee at (832) 649-1996.

Heavy trash week of Sept. 27 – Oct. 1

Good morning. 

Due to the amount of debris from Hurricane Nicholas the city has moved the fall Clean up/Green up to the week of September 27th through October 1st.

The trucks will start on the east side of the city beginning Monday morning and will work their way to the west side. There will only be one pass through the city so have your debris on the curb by Monday, September 27th at 7:00 am.

As a reminder your trash/building materials must be separate from your vegetation. If you mix your piles with both vegetation and trash/building materials it will not be picked up and you will be responsible for its disposal. Any items with freon in them (refrigerators, freezers, air-conditioners, etc.) must have the freon removed and property tagged.

Please let your neighbors know about this change in dates.

In Memory of former Mayor Matt Webber

Former Shoreacres Mayor Matt Webber passed away Wednesday, September 8, 2021. Mayor Webber was elected to Shoreacres City Council in May 2012 and was appointed Mayor in 2013. He and his wife Amber moved to Florida in 2014.

Matt Webber

Shoreacres Alderman Bo Bunker served on the council during Mayor Webber’s tenure.

He was a friend and could always make a joke. He fought an amazing long fight but in the end he was called home. Prayers and thoughts for Amber and his two kids, Austin and Ellie, their family and his friends everywhere.

You may view his guestbook and leave comments for the family here:


Matthew Bryan Webber, 48, passed away on September 8, 2021 in Pembroke Pines, Florida.

Always an enthusiast for life and its many adventures, Matt was born in Vandalia, Ohio to Illa Taylor and Michael Webber on July 16, 1973. He grew up in Ohio, fishing, golfing, and exploring the surrounding area. After his graduation from Vandalia-Butler High School, Matt enlisted in the Air Force, where he served on active duty from 1992 to 2002 as a Meteorological Navigation Systems Craftsman, and as a reservist from 2002 to 2006 as a Biomedical Maintenance Technician. Stationed in Texas for much of his military career, Staff Sergeant Webber’s service also included a tour with the US Air Force Tops in Blue, and a four-year overseas assignment in England.

He married fellow servicemember Amber Yuhas on July 19, 2003 in San Antonio, Texas. They began their family and lived in LaVernia, Texas, where he began work as a civilian in hospital facilities maintenance and completed his bachelor’s degree from Park University. In 2010, the family moved to Shoreacres, Texas outside Houston where Matt continued work in healthcare and in the community there.  He served as an Alderman on the City Council from 2012 to 2013, and as the Mayor for the City of Shoreacres from 2013 to 2014.

In 2014, the family moved to Pembroke Pines, Florida where Matt could avidly pursue the fishing, boating, and outdoor living he was always drawn to. He became a licensed fishing guide and boat Captain, sharing his many adventures on his blog and on his YouTube channel.

Captain Matt Webber is survived by his wife, Doctor Amber Webber; his children Austin Joseph Webber and Elizabeth May Webber; his parents, Illa and Richard (MT) Taylor (Vandalia, Ohio) and Michael and Judy Webber (Troy, Ohio); his three brothers, David Webber (and Connie, Jamestown, North Dakota), Joseph Webber (and Tim Guyne, Crested Butte, Colorado), and Nathan Webber (and John-Michael Lander, Kettering, Ohio); and because of his truly loving, dynamic, and charismatic personality, by dozens of friends and loved ones he knew as family. He is preceded in death by his twin sisters, Angela and Amy, deceased 1969.

Visitation will be Monday, September 13, 5:00-7:00pm at 2401 South University Drive, Davie, Florida 33324, with the funeral service immediately following. The burial will be at the South Florida National Cemetery at a later date.
