Magnolia Joins National Flood Insurance Program

Date Posted: Friday, May 18th, 2018

The Town received notice from FEMA that, effective April 5, 2018, its application to join the National Flood Insurance Program was approved. This means that town residents who desire to purchase flood insurance may do so through insurance agents or brokers licensed to do business in the State of Delaware. Per FEMA documentation, the Town of Magnolia is not located in a flood plain, but residents wishing to purchase the insurance may still do so. There is a 30-day waiting period after your date of purchase for the policy to become effective. Additional information, such as our notification letter and the FEMA Policy Issuance can be found under the Town’s website dropdown link entitled National Flood Insurance Program.

Lawn Mowing in Magnolia

Date Posted: Friday, May 18th, 2018

Spring has given us a great deal of rain and the lawns around town are rapidly growing. As such, please remember that, per Town Ordinances, Section VII, Number 708, grass on your yard should be no more than 6 inches tall or it is in violation. Property owners with grass that exceeds 6 inches will receive a violation notice, and if the owner is unresponsive, the Town will mow it and bill the owner a minimum of $75.00 for the first cut and the same for any subsequent cuts.

Note to residents that trash cans and recycle cans should be moved back to their regular spots near your residence as soon after collection day as possible. With the narrow streets and sidewalks that we have here, empty cans are dangerous for pedestrians to walk around. It also takes only some adverse weather, such as a snowstorm or windstorm, to push them into the roadways, where they may cause a vehicle accident or become a projectile if hit by a snowplow. If you miss your collection day, you should wheel the cans back to your residence until the next collection day. Under no circumstances should they be left on the sidewalk. Keep in mind that most trash vendors take recyclables on alternating weeks, not every week. Please familiarize yourself with your vendor’s schedule. Town staff will push empty cans back into driveways, and repeat offenders will receive citations from the […]
