City continues storm damage collection effort

The City of Kansas City, Mo., continues to make progress with a special collection to remove woody debris created by a storm on July 11, in the area bounded by 95th Street to the north, Raytown Rd. to the east, 119th Street to the south and Blue River Rd. to the west. After the completion of the first week of collection, the area south of I-470 and east of U.S. Highway 71, and a portion of the area west of U.S. Highway 71 and south of I-435 have seen considerable improvements.

City crews will continue to work in a systematic manner until the entire area affected has been cleared. Due to the extent of the debris, it is anticipated that this effort may last for several additional weeks.

In order to meet the needs for equipment and personnel in the area affected by the storm, some City crews normally assigned to the bulky collection program have been assigned to work in the storm cleanup effort. This reassignment of crews and equipment will create delays in regularly scheduled bulky collections.

Media inquires about this issue should be directed to Dennis Gagnon, public information officer for the City’s Public Works Department at 816-513-2659.
