Well, the season is here and there is plenty to do and be aware of. Remember that enforcement of all rules and regulations is stepped up from now through the end of the summer. There are time limits on parking in the village, dogs are not allowed on the beaches, there are different permits for different beaches and all beaches require a parking permit.
With the summer crowds here, there seems to be many uncalled for and negligent behavior patterns. One thing that comes to mind, and that many have claimed to witness, is the dumping of household garbage in public trash cans. Come on, folks, buy a dump permit or arrange for trash pickup but don’t trash our beaches—yes, that what happens when dump your bags of trash there and fill up the cans.
Please be careful driving and, when walking, cross the street within the crosswalk. Doing otherwise is a hazard as some drivers will stop to be “polite” even though it can cause an accident. And drivers, note that if anyone has a foot in the crosswalk you are required to stop and let them cross.
