City Crews Get Storm Clean Up Help from Local Construction Companies
July 27, 2013
Albuquerque- City crews continue to work around the clock to clean up after Friday’s historic storms, and now Department of Municipal Development crews are getting a helping hand from TLC Plumbing and Utility and Albuquerque Asphalt Inc. in assisting in removing branches from the hardest hit neighborhoods.
Starting at 9 A.M. Sunday morning and lasting for approximately eight hours, TLC will have six dump trucks patrolling neighborhoods starting near 8th and Bridge and moving north toward the Interstate, while Albuquerque Asphalt will have several trucks starting near 4th and Alameda and moving south.
"DMD crews have been working since the early morning Friday storms dumped more than two and half inches of rain in the northeast heights," Mayor Richard J. Berry said. "I want to thank these two local companies for stepping up to help our guys and our neighborhoods."
These trucks and crews will be available for citizens to load branches and debris from the storms.
"Based on information from our DMD crews in the field, this core area between approximately Edith and 8th street from Bridge Boulevard to Alameda Boulevard was hit the hardest with winds causing downed branches," DMD Director Michael Riordan said.
"If a neighborhood outside of this core area feels like they have an excessive amount of branches down, they can call 311 to be placed in queue as the clean up continues.”
