Storm Damage Cleanup

7-12-17 UPDATE.  The Public Works Department continues cleaning up storm debris using our regular yard waste schedule.  We have two full crews with claws and packers out working on Wednesday’s route today.  Crews are working extended hours to finish each day’s route. 

Staff is maintaining a list of items such as damaged branches, complete tree removal, stump removal, etc. that will require a return trip with different equipment.  Residents can call 940-4817 or 940-4870 to report trees and stumps in the right-of-way (generally in front of the sidewalk) that were not removed with the claw/packer crews.  These items will be addressed in the upcoming weeks as time permits.   

There are still some communications lines down (Comcast/AT&T) that have delayed our efforts to remove storm debris. Our crews cannot clear debris until these lines are removed.  You may wish to contact your provider to make sure they are aware of lines down on your street.

7-10-2017 UPDATE.  Public Works employees worked through the weekend to clear the streets and sidewalks and to start hauling away the worst of the storm damage. Today there are multiple crews assigned to continue these efforts. Public Works is using the established daily collection routes with one extra crew out working on the bigger items. So crews are concentrating on Monday's route today, but you may also see other employees cutting and hauling larger piles of debris.

Please continue to move limbs and branches to the outlawn for pickup, but do not put items in the street as this can cause sight distance issues and impede traffic flow.

Even after this week's concentrated efforts to remove storm damage, residents will be able to place limbs and other debris out by the curb as they always do for the city's weekly yard waste collection program.

If you are still without electricity, phone or cable service, please contact your service provider directly.
