The Protect Rio Vista program utilizes your subscription funds to hire off-duty Fort Lauderdale police officers to patrol in the neighborhood.  The officers are in uniform when on duty and have full authority to take official action action should a crime take place while on patrol.  The officers patrol in a marked car leased by the civic association and will be dispatched by FLPD for any 911 call recieved from the neighborhood.  Members also recieve a cell phone number by which they may contact the patrol officers directly while they are on duty.  Members also recieve the opportunity to request a vacation check of their home when they are out of town.

The association recieved the following notice.

I represent Federal Highway Holdings, the owner of property located at 777-789 S. Federal Highway within the City’s RAC-CC zoning district.  The owner filed an application to vacate a portion of a remnant alley (10’ wide x 124’ long) that runs through the property.  A location map is attached to this email for reference.
