Dothan working long hours to remove storm debris

By  | 

DOTHAN, AL. (WTVY) - Dothan city workers are putting in overtime collecting Hurricane Michael debris.

The Dothan Public Works Department has had its hands full, covering more than 500 miles of roadways, trying to keep up with the demand.
The department isn't specifically targeting any part of the city but is trying to spread their crews evenly.
They're asking for patience as this process will take up to two months to clean up everything.

"The first time through the area it was things from their front yards, trees and debris from their front yard.," said Public Works Director Charles Metzger. Now it's things from their back yards.There's only so many tree contractors. It's going to be a process until we get it completed. "

The tree and branch debris is being taken to a dump site off Webb Road where it will eventually be burned.
