I want to thank everyone for their continued patience while the hurricane debris is collected. The estimate of debris caused by the storm now exceeds 150,000 cubic yards. That is equal to almost 50,000 pounds. In a normal scenario, it would take the City 27 months to pick up that much debris. The City Commission took decisive action this week that ensures FEMA trucks will remain in the City to collect our debris. We are looking at mere weeks, not months, that a "first pass" through the city will be accomplished. Considering that some cities have still not started to collect their debris, we are very fortunate here in Deerfield Beach. Our staff has been working tirelessly to implement the most efficient clean-up plan possible. Again, thank you for your patience.
Have a good weekend.
