Update on Inverness City Services Post Hurricane Irma
The city’s priority this week is to ensure essential services are up and running as soon as possible
Following the storm, the city’s priority this week is to ensure essential services are up and running as soon as possible. The city staff has worked throughout the storm to safeguard continuity of essential services to inlcude water, wastewater, fire safety services, sanitation and debris clean up.
A major concern is the amount of vegitative debris, and the city has teams currently collecting debris from roadways, sidewalks and trails to make them passable. Residents clearing vegitative debris from their property should place it in an orderly fashion near the curb that does not impede sidewalks, mail delivery or traffic.
City waste collection has been modified:
• Monday and Tuesday collection has been moved to Wednesday September 13, 2017
• Wednesday collection day has been moved to Thursday September 14, 2017
• Thursday collection day has been moved to Friday September 15, 2017
• Wednesday recycling has been moved to Thursday September 14, 2017
