Attached is a list showing roads where the contractor has removed debris. Please note that none of the roads, other than those listed as Zone 10 (unincorporated Amelia Island), have been declared clear for a first sweep. Zone 10 was reported as clear for the first sweep the week of October 30th.
A second sweep of vegetative debris will begin in Zone 10 on Wednesday, November 15th. PLEASE BE SURE THAT ALL REMAINING VEGETATIVE DEBRIS ON COUNTY MAINTAINED ROADS ON AMELIA ISLAND IS IN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY BY NOVEMBER 15TH. ANY VEGETATIVE DEBRIS PLACED IN THE COUNTY RIGHT-OF-WAY AFTER THEY BEGIN THE SECOND SWEEP WILL NOT BE PICKED UP. All areas outside of Zone 10 will be scheduled for a second sweep after the first sweep has been completed. Announcements for second sweeps in all other zones will be made at a later date.
The contractor has also placed 4 cut trucks in operation to clear “leaners and hangers” which are standing trees or hanging limbs in danger of falling. These trees and limbs must meet certain criteria issued by FEMA in order to be cleared. The debris from these trees and limbs are being placed in the right-of-way and will be removed by the contractor during the second sweep of those areas.
As a reminder, two drop off sites have been established for citizens who wish to deliver their debris in lieu of waiting for a contractor, or for those residing on private roads. Both sites will accept vegetative debris free of charge with proof of residency. Neither bagged debris nor construction debris will be accepted at the sites. Contractors are NOT authorized to use these sites:
- Bailey Road Maintenance Yard located at 3163 Bailey Rd in Fernandina Beach. Open seven days per week from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
- Hilliard Maintenance Yard located at 37356 Pea Farm Road in Hilliard. Open Saturdays and Sundays from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
The contractor has NOT begun picking up construction debris in any zone as they are focusing on the widespread vegetative debris at this time. We will make announcements as soon as we are notified of when they will begin picking up the construction debris.
Lastly, the Debris Monitoring Company, Witt O’Brien, has established a debris monitoring hotline for citizen complaints and concerns. You may contact them directly at (904) 451-7609 or via e-mail at Nassau@wittobriens.com.
