Due to the increase in new residents, contractors and visitors to our area, the Chipley Police Department would like to remind the public of a few important City Codes.

Residents/Landlords/Visitors/ Contractors/Business Owners-
• Please remove all trash, debris, junk, white goods and inoperable vehicles on and around the premises of your property.
• White goods – (freezers, washers, dryers and refrigerators) are NOT permissible to be left or stored outside. Those left curbside for pickup will not be picked up if it is not directly related to the Hurricane. Disposal contractors may determine not to remove it.
