Augusta's new storm cleanup crew is getting down to business.

The city's emergency storm contractor gathered it's forces Wednesday to begin the ice storm recovery process.

Augusta Commissioners approved spending up to $8 million with a Florida company to clean up storm damage on Monday.

Wednesday, trucks were being certified so the city can account for all the debris that's collected.
 
"They're bringing the trucks in, they're measuring them, certifying them, as we go to a unit cost. They're going to have to verify all the volume in all the trucks so when we get FEMA reimbursement, they're going to want documentation on what trucks we used, what debris they hauled, and where it went," says Traffic Engineer Steve Cassell.

Despite the wet weather, the crews did hit the streets picking up debris once the trucks were certified.

A workshop for contractors interested in a possible opportunity to aid in debris removal and recovery projects for Augusta Richmond County will be held on Friday, February 28, 2014. The workshop will be from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Julian Smith Casino, located at 2200 Broad Street. Contractors will be meeting with AshBritt Environmental and Leidos, the companies the city has contracted with to help in the storm recovery process.

Contractors should bring the following items with them:

  • Copy of Insurance
  • Copy of Workers Compensation Forms
  • W9
