Madison Public Works crews continue to work on cleanup of flood debris from residences on the south side of the city. Crews were working in the southeast section of the city on Monday, then moving into the southwest section. City Streets Director Gary Gonyo told Madison City Commissioners Monday that it will take a few more days to complete the first round of the cleanup. He said that when they start their second round through the city, they will again begin in the northwest area of the city. After both rounds are completed, the city will then pick up discarded appliances from the flood.
Electronics can be taken to a free electronics drop-off in Madison on October 19th.
The city is also still asking residents to limit water and sewer usage at this time. Water is beginning to recede but levels are still high, and city officials will re-evaluate this status at the end of this week.
The city is missing several blue garbage carts after the flooding. If you have an extra one that showed up after the flood, you are asked to call the city’s Public Works office at 256-7515.
