STORM DEBRIS PICKUP

May 28, 2024

Town crews are out removing storm debris that are under power lines only. Debris removal will resume as soon as the truck becomes available. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

HURRICANE PREP

May 08, 2024

The town is underway preparing for the upcoming hurricane season. As some of you know the last little storm we had a few weeks ago took down some trees and limbs along with the power. Two of the four standby generators that we made repairs on last season for preparation failed to run properly. This has been addressed and should not be an issue moving forward. Recently we have had some of our Public Works employees attend workshops regarding chainsaw safety during storms. 

Town Protocol in the Event of Potential landfall in our area:

  • Non-Essential emergency vehicles and personnel will leave the area and will stage out of harm's way. Returning as soon as roads are passable.
  • Police Chief, including necessary policemen will remain in town during the event.
  • 2 employees (Public Works) and I will remain in town during the event.
  • Bottled water will be stockpiled in multiple locations.
  • Location of nearest Shelter will be announced.

HURRICANE SAFTEY PLAN

I encourage all residents to begin personal preparations, and planning.

Best Regards,

Mayor Watkins
