City Will Pick Up Storm Debris
Tuesday, 12 August 2014

August 12--  The City of Vidalia will pickup trees and limbs which fell during last Friday's storm.

City Manager Bill Torrance made the announcement Tuesday morning on the radio broadcast "Vidalia Today."

"People may not realize it for residences here in Vidalia, if you had trees that came down during this storm and you get them cut and moved out to the road, we will pick those up," he said.

"There is no charge for debris that is storm-related even though it would help the city if residents have insurance that will pay for private removal.

"We hope that people, if they're going to turn something in to their insurance for damages, go ahead and put disposal in there to because it helps us and the community handle the problem.

"If you've just got a big limb that's down or a tree that's split, get it to the road and we'll take it away.  Now that just for residential, we can't take on all the businesses in town," he said.

Torrance says city crews and Republic, the city's trash contractor, will be concentrating on Green Acres Drive and the area around Hawk's Point Golf Course this week since those areas were hit the hardest.
