I'd mow it now and then again just before the next dry spell so it is shocked and also dries out some. Provided that won't spread seeds and growable tissue. That could give you time to decide on a more permanent solution. If you can mow, tag the palms, and scout the land for Gopher Tortoises and Burrowing Owls first.
Does your state university have ag extension services? If they do, you may be able to get free guidance or free services from them. Ours has lots of freebies. It requires inquiring and persistence. I've heard they are more focused on areas near water so the pond is likely a plus.
