Mud Cleanup Begins
Even though City crews were patrolling mud prone areas yesterday, they were unable to begin clean-up until the rain stops. The City waits for the rain to stop for employee safety, and because it is very difficult to scoop-up muddy water. When the mud is in its most liquid form, it spills out of the equipment and back onto City streets. Once the rain ceases long enough for most of the moisture to run out of the mud, the City can begin removing the mud from the streets.
Starting today, City crews will begin cleaning-up mud deposited on city streets. The priorities are based upon the number of residents impacted – the greater the number of residents impacted, the higher the priority. We anticipate that all streets will be clear of mud and debris by the end of the day Thursday, February 19th.
Once again, the City would like to express its appreciation for the cooperation of those residents in the mud impacted areas. It is due to our mutual efforts that the City has not experienced any serious reports of damage. Thank you for your patience and assistance.
