Garbage Service: Garbage service has been cancelled for Thursday, June 22, 2017 due to the high tides caused by the Tropical Storm.  Garbage will be picked up on Saturday, June 24, 2017.  Trash service will return to its regular schedule next week.


2017 Jamaica Beach City Park Expansion Project: The City of Jamaica Beach believes that parks are a tangible reflection of the quality of life in a community.  With that in mind, the City of Jamaica Beach submitted a park expansion project proposal to the Commissioners Court in hopes the funding for the project will be sponsored by the 2017 Galveston County Bond Referendum. Registered voters will have the opportunity to vote for/against the comprehensive bond package on November 4, 2017. The City of Jamaica Beach created a "Frequently Asked Question" (FAQ) regarding the proposed park expansion project to clarify any misconceptions or misconstrued information.  Please click here to read the City's official response to FAQ's. A copy of the proposed plans can be viewed at City Hall during office hours.


Jamaica Beach Public Pool Update: The tentative operational season for the pool starts the weekend of the Memorial Day Holiday and ends the weekend of the Labor Day Holiday.  During the operating season the pool will be open on Tuesday-Sunday from 10AM to 8PM (weather permitting). Please note: at the beginning and end of the season, the pool will be open on weekends only while local, public schools are in session.  The entry fee for residents and non-residents is $5.00 per person for a daily pass or $60.00 per person for a Season pass.  Season pass membership can be purchased at the pool or at City Hall (Season Pass Application & Pool Rules).  This season the pool will be managed by USA Pool Management Company.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Pool Supervisor at (409) 497-4794.

Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) is imposed on the rental of a room or space costing $15.00 or more each day for State reporting and $2.00 or more each day for Local reporting. Any person leasing their house(s), or room in their house, as a Short Term Rental must collect the tax from their customers in the same way a hotel or motel collects the tax from their guests. The HOT rate in Jamaica Beach is 15% (6% to State and 9% to Local) of the cost of the room.  Please visit the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts website for more information and/or State reporting. Download the city's Hotel Occupancy Tax Form for Local reporting and remitting. Please file reports, even if no tax was collected, by due date to avoid State and Local penalties.
