HENRY COUNTY, Ala. (WTVY) -- Debris cleanup from Hurricane Michael is finally complete in Henry County.

County Engineer, Chris Champion, said they were not able to begin the cleanup process until January.

He said that is why it took a little longer than some neighboring counties.

Now that the cleanup is complete, county leaders can submit an application for reimbursement through FEMA.

"The total project was about $360,000, and we anticipate getting back about 75% of that from FEMA, and then another 12.5% from the state when the project is closed out," Champion said.

Champion said they finished cleaning up vegetative debris from the sides of county roads in mid-June.

The debris was placed in gullies in various parts of the county, so it could decompose naturally.
