Trimming at Lakeview Park




A neighbor sends photos of piles from recent apparently unauthorized cutting done to certain locations within Lakeview Park, along with this excerpt from the County Code:

From Sarasota County Code of Ordinances, Article II, Section 90-33 (16) - Prohibited Activities, Conditions or Uses:

Destroying, cutting, carving, mutilating, moving, displacing, breaking off, injuring, defacing, marring, moving, digging, harmfully disturbing or removing from any area, or the waters thereof, any buildings, structures, facilities, cultural resources, including historic and prehistoric, equipment, park property, soil, natural water bottom formation, sand, gravel, rocks, stones, fossils, minerals, plants (including terrestrial, aquatic, marine, or epiphytic plants) or animals, artifacts, or other materials.

And, under Penalties:

(3) Any person who violates Section 90-33 (a)(9), (10), (11), (12), (13), (14), (15), (16), (17), or (18) is subject to prosecution for a misdemeanor of the second degree, punishable as provided in F.S. §§ 775.082 and 775.083, by a defined term of imprisonment not exceeding 60 days and a fine not exceeding $500.00.
