Sanitation schedules are back to normal with garbage & recycling pick up for City of Boca Raton customers.

How to Apply
The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program has been activated as a result of Hurricane Irma in all of Florida’s 67 counties. Applications will be accepted by qualified Florida small businesses under this program through Oct. 31, 2017, contingent on the availability of funds. For more information, click here.
