Parks and Open Space (POS) and Maintenance (PWM) completed an impressive 2,150 hazard tree and debris work orders in the first 30 days of the storm recovery. That number represents a massive amount of collaborative work done by these divisions.
The end of March marked another milestone with just over 80 percent of the recovery efforts completed. While significant progress has been made, the work is not over yet. Staff is continuing to remove tree hazards and clear debris from rights-of-way.
Storm events, like this one, provide a unique opportunity for cross-training and allow staff to take on new roles. The joint storm response forged a stronger partnership between POS and PWM as staff worked side-by-side to help make lives better through the services we provide each day.
