It’s been three weeks since the derecho that hit the City of Madison, and there’s still quite a bit of clean-up to be done.  Mayor Roy Lindsay said that city crews continue to make their way through the city, picking up residents’ tree debris that is left in the boulevard.  He said that it has been a slow process because of the amount of debris they have needed to clean up.

Lindsay said that the city is using its own equipment, as well as that of private businesses in order to keep the clean-up process moving forward, but the areas where the trees are being deposited are filling up.

Residents who want to dispose of their own tree or construction debris from the storm can do so at the Restricted Use Site or the Yard Waste site.  The Restricted Use Site fees are being waived for storm debris deliveries, and there is no charge to take tree debris to the Yard Waste site.  

Mayor Lindsay said that the city’s Electric Department is also continuing to go through and evaluate areas that may have received damage from the May 12th storm and others.

Lindsay asked that residents remain patient as the city crews continue to work on clean-up efforts.
