Miami Shores Village Code Enforcement will begin inspections for tree limbs, palms or foliage that has been allowed to grow into or within 6 feet of the power lines adjacent to your property.


In an effort to reduce the amount of power outages during hurricanes or severe storm conditions, the Village Code Section 8-23(c) requires property owners to keep their vegetation trimmed at least 6 feet away from power lines.


Because there is a potential for electrocution while trimming these trees limbs, palms or vegetation away from power lines, we strongly recommend that you seek a professional tree trimmer to trim the vegetation away from the power lines.


Should you have any questions concerning any of the information contained herein, please contact our Code Enforcement Department at (305) 795-2207 ext. 4862 and we will be happy to explain the program to you.
