Winter Park-Maitland Observer
Baffle Box, Drug Take Back Day, New Utility Bills, Flu Shot Program

Submission Date:  Sept. 16, 2014
Dommerich Drive Baffle Box Installation
A section of Dommerich Drive, between Comanche and Choctaw Trails, is closing to through traffic beginning this week through Oct. 23 for stormwater-infrastructure improvements. 
Gregori Construction will install a nutrient-separating baffle box at the Dommerich Beach Civic Association lot. Nutrient-separating baffle boxes are retrofits designed to capture stormwater pollution and garbage prior to their flow into our waterways.
This project will improve surface water quality by removing sediments, leaf litter, and excess nutrients that currently discharge untreated into Lake Minnehaha.
By way of detour signs, driveways along this stretch of Dommerich Drive will be accessible by local residents only. 
The contractor will have maintenance of traffic in place.
National Drug Take Back Day
The Maitland Police Department will participate in the National Drug Take Back initiative on Saturday, Sept. 27, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., at 1837 Fennell Street, Maitland, Fla. Take the time to turn in unused or expired medication for safe disposal.
Utility Bill Gets New Design, Remit Address
Beginning in October, residents will notice a new utility-bill design. The redesign features a more intuitive billing summary, a historical water-usage graph, and expanded water-meter reading information.
For residents who mail in payments, the new local remit address is P.O. Box 940068, Maitland, FL 32794 -0068. If you have any questions regarding your bill, please contact Customer Service at (407) 539-6265.
Additional utility-billing initiatives coming in November include expanded payment options and paperless e-delivery.
Maitland Fire Rescue Department Administers Flu Shot Program
9/30/14 Update: The new shipment has arrived and the flu vaccine is now available. 
It is that time of year again! The Centers for Disease Control recommends a yearly flu vaccine for individuals 6 months of age and older. While there are many flu viruses, the seasonal flu vaccine is designed to protect against the top three or four flu viruses that research indicates will be prevalent during the upcoming flu season. CDC recommends that people be vaccinated before the flu season begins. It takes about two weeks after the vaccination to develop protective antibodies against the flu.
As in years past, the Maitland Fire Rescue Department will administer flu shots at Fire Station 45 (behind City Hall) weekdays and the Maitland Farmers’ Market on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Lake Lily Park.

Again this year, Medicare and most major insurances are accepted and the vaccine will be free to those patients. Please remember to bring your insurance card.

For patients who do not have a policy with an accepted insurance, the cost for the vaccine will be as follows:
$30.00 Adult & Pediatric Quadrivalent
$25.00 Adult Trivalent
The quadrivalent vaccine provides protection against two influenza A viruses and two influenza B viruses. The trivalent vaccine, on the other hand, protects against three flu viruses.   Cash, check, and major credit cards are accepted. For more information, please visit
