City crews begin debris removal

Mayor A.J. Holloway has announced that several dozen city crews have begun removing Hurricane Ivan debris from roadsides along major thoroughfares and in neighborhoods, and workers will continue working seven days a week to help remove

“We’re getting to everything as quickly as we can, and we’re going to stay at it until we get it all,” Holloway said.

“Residents can do a couple of things to help get this job done. They can haul storm debris themselves to the sites we’ve established throughout the city, and if they put it in front of their homes, it needs to be bagged, to keep it from being blown into the street and into storm drains.”
