Storm clean up continues in Pulaski County

The clean-up from the election day storm is still underway in St. Robert, Waynesville, and other parts of Pulaski County that had wind, hail, and rain damages including downed power lines, toppled trees broken limbs, and the like. St. Robert Assistant City Administrator Mark Parker says the transfer station on J. H. Williamson, Jr. Drive took in a record 220 tons of trash last week of broken shingles and other items caused by last week’s storms.

City workers are still encountering storm damage where homeowners need assistance in removing trees and limbs from their properties.
Parker says Pulaski County residents and those who live inside city limits can receive free assistance to remove downed trees and limbs, as residents of Crocker, Dixon, Richland, Saint Robert, and Waynesville are eligible to receive storm cleanup assistance from the county. The Pulaski County Office of Emergency Management and the Pulaski County COAD are jointly offering assistance to residents affected by the storms last week; specifically, for cleaning up storm debris on properties. Applications can be obtained at all City Halls in Crocker, Dixon, Richland, Saint Robert, and Waynesville from now until April 19th at 5 PM. The service is free of charge for residential homeowners only. You can come into the St. Robert Municipal building to fill out an application, or you can call Mark Parker’s direct line at 573-337-5549.
Because of the storm and continuing cleanup efforts, the scheduled Spring Cleaning Pickup week has been pushed off to the middle part of May.
