We all have concerns about when our city will return to normal. There are a few people without power still, and intersections can be hit or miss to see if the traffic light is working. You have to give credit to all of the city and Centerpoint employees who have been working tirelessly to resolve the current situation. In a recent message from the Mayor’s office, he offers the following information:
For the latest details on the city’s collection plan, please visit http://www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/press-20080929.html and for an interactive map of debris collection, please visit http://www.houstontx.gov/solidwaste/debrismaps.html.
Also, to assist you on many other fronts, we have prepared an extensive City of Houston
Hurricane Ike Recovery Guide which is posted on the city’s homepage www.houstontx.gov and updated regularly.
And finally, I ask you to continue helping your neighbors recover from the storm and to please share the information contained in this email with others, especially those who do not have internet access.
Thank you again for your efforts, cooperation and patience as we all work as hard as possible to get our city back to normal.
I was happy to see my street cleared of branches today. My son brought cold water out to the workers. I was not sure what to expect with Ike, but the city’s efforts are going faster then I expected.
