Mississippi City Board Discusses Isaac Debris Removal Estimates

September 21, 2012

The McComb, Miss., city board is a step closer to cleaning up the decaying debris that still lines many city streets after Hurricane Isaac.

The cleanup will cost about $300,000 with the cheapest option offered.

The Enterprise-Journal reports Public Works Director Philip Russell presented a plan to the board Tuesday night to hire Alabama-based Crowder Gulf Disaster Recovery and Debris Management. The board will vote on the hire at next week’s board meeting, and then the company can begin the cleanup.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency will reimburse 75 percent of the cost – about $225,000 – which leaves the city to cover the other 25 percent, or $75,000.
