Storm Information

Emergency Management Update

As our county continues to recover from the effects of the severe weather on May 10th and 11th, the Suwannee County Board of County Commissioners and the Suwannee County Division of Emergency Management have worked to establish debris cleanup for the recent event.

Debris crews will begin the process of picking up vegetative debris from the right-of-way on county-maintained roads on Tuesday, May 28th.  Crews will be working in the county/city/towns to collect and dispose of debris. Pickup and disposal will continue until Friday, June 7th.  The 11-day limited time frame will not be extended.   All debris set in the right-of-way for pickup must not be stacked too close to the road where it can potentially cause a safety hazard for roadway traffic.

This cleanup period is for residential vegetative debris only.  Do not put construction debris or any other type of non-vegetative storm debris in the right-of-way.  The pickup service is not for commercial use or land clearing.  Additionally, debris teams will not enter private property or private roads to gather debris.  Emergency Management is exploring the use of volunteer groups to help those who need assistance on private property. If those arrangements can be finalized, more information will be posted regarding future developments. Until more information is received, you can contact the Southern Baptist Disaster Response Team at  (904) 253-0502 for assistance with trees, debris, and tarps.

Please take time to move debris to the County right-of-way as soon as possible before Tuesday, May 28th.  Debris that is not in the County right-of-way by May 28th creates a risk of being skipped or left behind during the pickup week of 5/28/2024 until 6/7/2024.

If you have any questions, please call the Division of Emergency Management at 386-364-3405.
