Advanced Disposal Services and city staff worked through the weekend to expedite cleanup efforts from Tropical Storm Beryl. City manager, Joe Gerrity, indicated the areas of the city hit hardest are north of Atlantic Avenue, Bosque Bello Cemetery, the golf course area, and subdivisions located on the east side of Jasmine Street.
As of early afternoon on Friday, Gerrity estimates 15 – 20% of storm debris has been collected. A visit to the city mulch site where much of the storm debris is being located, shows a portion of the massive debris left in the wake of tropical storm Beryl. According to Gerrity, “We will work diligently to get the city back on track as soon as possible.
