During the Feb. 14 Winter Garden City Commission meeting, city leaders will discuss a proposed ordinance that aims to clarify the maintenance requirements for recreational facilities, including golf courses and open spaces.

According to the agenda, city staff acknowledges that many regulations and standards relating to lot cleanliness and maintenance currently apply to properties used or zoned for residential, commercial, professional office, or industrial purposes and recommends that the same regulations should apply to recreational facilities, including golf courses and open space.

The agenda states the ordinance, among other goals, is intended to prohibit “the accumulation of junk, trash, debris, and nonliving plant material upon any residential, professional office, recreational facility, commercial, planned development zoned, or industrial lot, tract, or parcel of land.”

Ordinance 19-11 is recommended for commission approval by the city’s staff. 


Winter Garden city commissioners will also discuss two ordinances – Ordinances 19-08 and 19-09 – which concern pensions for firefighters, police officers and general City of Winter Garden employees. The ordinances, which are in their second reading, seek to implement changes required by the internal revenue codes to pension plans for the city’s general employee, firefighters and police officers.
