City completes storm debris and tree clean-up

More than a month after the May 12th derecho that hit the City of Madison, crews have completed their tree and storm construction debris clean-up.  

City Administrator Jameson Berreth told Madison City Commissioners Tuesday that crews wrapped up their clean-up efforts on Tuesday.

Berreth said that the Madison Restricted Use Site is back to normal operations and its normal fee schedule.  He said it will be time for city workers to get back to their normal work as well.

Berreth said that one of the chippers being used to grind the tree debris from the storm was lost in a fire, but that the company has brought in another piece of equipment to resume the work being done.  He said there is a second machine working on them as well and that they are slowly making their way through the piles of trees.
