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.

They will ONLY pick up vegetation. If you have mixed trash or building materials in with your vegetation, they will not pick it up and you will be responsible for disposing of it.

I very much appreciate Commissioner Garcia’s support.

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.

Obituary:

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.

The family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the doctors, nurses, and staff of Memorial Hospital West in Pembroke Pines for their care, expertise, consideration, and support over the last five weeks, and for their compassion and understanding in his final hours.

New Flagpole

I hope that you have seen our new flagpole at the entrance to the city on Shoreacres Blvd. It replaces the maritime style flagpole that we’ve had for quite a while.

The problem with that pole was that it was simply too small. When we needed to lower the flags to half-staff, the flags looked like they were almost on the ground. The new pole is 2 1/2 times the height of the old one and the flags are almost three times the size. They look awesome and at night we have a light highlighting them.

Many thanks to Chad Burke, Karen Gregory and the Economic Alliance Houston Port Region for their generous grant that made this possible. City Manager Troy Harrison worked with the the alliance to make this happen.
