Post update: 5:30 PM Sunday, 10/1/2017 : 46 trips completed by the crews today, Sunday, 10/1/2017.
The debris collection crews have finished the area schools (the items they could reach with the clam shell grabber trucks - until they can 'push out some items with the bobcats - and then pick up). The teams have moved on to 77th Avenue. Police are working with the crews. Everyone should begin to see dramatic improvement throughout the village.
Schedule for Monday, 10/2/2017 includes 152, 82nd and 168th areas along with sections of Mangowood Area.

Team Palmetto Bay has been hard at work since 2:30 Saturday; removing storm debris at and around Howard Drive, Coral Reef and Perrine Elementary schools as well as Southwood Middle School.
I will continue updated as new information is available. Please keep us up to date on your debris concerns through the AdminTemp@palmettobay-fl.gov e-mail. And, as always, I am available to address your questions or concerns. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 305-302-3713
See my prior post of 9/30/2017 - Palmetto Bay Council has approved a contractor to speed up debris collection within Palmetto Bay. We were serious that we needed to accelerate the debris collection schedule and we have. We are taking all efforts necessary to protect life and property in Palmetto Bay.

The photos speak volumes about the long weekend clean up. We prioritized collecting debris around the schools - a major area of safety and will be spreading out in even teams - 2 per district (6 total) beginning Monday. The vendor, Ceres Environmental Services, Inc. has the proper tools for the work and are being monitored by Village staff.
