City completes storm damage collection effort
The City of Kansas City, Mo., has completed a special collection to remove woody debris created by a storm Sept. 18 that left extensive damage in the area bounded by 60th Street to the north, Parvin Road to the south, I-435 to the east and Antioch Road to the west. While the special collection took approximately one week to complete, most of the heavy debris was collected from the City right-of-way during the eight days preceding the special collection.
"Thanks go out to the residents affected by this most recent storm and to our city crews who stepped up to get the job done," said Mayor Mark Funkhouser. "A city is often judged on how well it performs in tough times, and in this case both residents and government rose to the challenge."
The Solid Waste Division appreciates the understanding nature of residents with scheduled Bulky Collection appointments who experienced delays after Bulky Collection crews were diverted to the storm cleanup effort. All Solid Waste Division activities, including the Bulky Collection Program, are back on schedule.
Media inquiries about this issue should be directed to Dennis Gagnon, public information officer for the City’s Public Works Department at 816-513-2659.
