A Message from the Mayor and Commission
Wednesday, July 1, 4 pm

Tamarac’s City Manager issued Emergency Order 2020-04, which goes into effect today. It requires all City parks to close on July 4, 2020. Additional highlights include:

• It allows the City’s pool to open to the public on July 6, 2020, in accordance with the rules, restrictions and social distancing guidelines in the Broward County Emergency Order 20-12. Please note, the City’s water playground, slide and splash pad will remain closed.
• It confirms that all City-owned parks will be open to the public as in the previous order with some amendments, including that picnic shelters will remain closed, up to four people may use tennis courts and that City parks will close on July 4. Broward County guidelines must be followed.
• It enables the City to waive fees and certain regulatory requirements for food truck usage by existing restaurants impacted by COVID-19. Requirements for these provisions are detailed in the order. Businesses must submit requests for approval in advance.

Except for these amendments, the new Emergency Order extends and ratifies items in Emergency Order 2020-03 for another 60 days. This includes allowing local businesses to utilize temporary banners and signs and restaurants to use additional outdoor seating beyond the City’s Code, after obtaining City approval. The full order can be read at https://www.tamarac.org/TamaracEO2020.04. Local businesses interested in taking advantage of any of the relief efforts in the Order can email Frank.Zickar@Tamarac.org.

The pool hours that will go into effect on Monday, July 6, include a morning session from 10 am – noon, and an afternoon session from 1 – 3 pm. The pool will be open Monday through Saturday. The City has increased cleaning protocols and is implementing new procedures to keep swimmers safe. Only 30 people can use the pool at a time, only credit card payments will be accepted for admission and swimmers will be allowed to purchase only one session per day.
