The Board of Larimer County Commissioners this week approved up to $4-million and the hiring of a contractor for collecting flood debris. The County’s flood debris pickup program is expected to begin in the next two weeks once the contractor is hired and the plan designed. Collection accomplishment is weather dependent.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) regulations require Larimer County to adhere to specific requirements for cleanup and guidelines and procedures must be followed to maintain County eligibility for cost reimbursement. Monitoring debris pick-up is part of this requirement and the County will hire monitors to carry out this part of the project. Questions concerning debris cleanup can be directed to Gary Darling at (970) 980-2671 or Stephen Gillette at (970) 498-5762.              #####
