Recovering From Hurricane Irma

Solid Waste

Solid Waste has completed their second pass through the City picking up storm debris. Wednesday November 1st will be the official last day for all vegetative storm debris pickup. Friday November 3rd will be the last day of bulk and construction debris. If residents still have storm related vegetative debris that hasn't been brought to the road, please get it out to the Right-of-Way. Try to stack high and as neatly as possible so the grapple truck can pick it all up. Smaller piles of debris left along the property line take longer to pickup.

Materials placed by the road for pickup after the dates indicated above will incur additional charges for removal.

Property Owners / residents are responsible for getting storm related debris to the right-of-way. The public Right-of-Way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole, or easement. We request customers separate storm related; bulk pickup items, construction and demolition debris, and vegitative debris (woody burnable debris such as limbs and shrubbery). Only debris that was generated from the storm will be collected. Place bags in a separate pile, not on top of loose debris.

Please do not place any debris near water meter vaults, fire hydrants or any other above ground utility. Please do not place the debris piles in the swale as that will block storm water drainage. Only debris placed in the public Right-of-Way will be eligible for collection.

Public Works and Utilities

All Public Works and Utility crews are working dilengtly on storm water drainage issues. Crews are picking up debris from canals and swales, snaking out clogged culverts, and in some cases installing pumps to remove water from low lying areas. We have received more rainfall the past 6 weeks than any such period in many years. We have plans to install new, bigger culverts under roadways, but will not be able to start construction until it dries up some. Also, we have contacted the State Department of Transportation, as we have discovered much of the issue of flooding in the Deen Rd. area is from SR 100 draining into our system, which the state is addressing. Know that we are dealing with all of these storm water issues, as our highest priorty, as fast and best as we can.
