MADEIRA BEACH - In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma the city of Madeira Beach is working hard to clear streets and debris from roadsides. Cleanup is a work in progress with the expectation of debris pick up to continue well into next week.

“We are working hard with our partnership through FEMA to ensure debris is collected effectively and recorded accurately. We ask residents to be patient as we work diligently to clean up the community,” said Dave Marsicano, Public Works director

As of Thursday morning there were still a few places without power including city hall offices and John’s Pass Village. Traffic outages are being monitored by community policing officers at the intersections of 153rd Avenue and Gulf Boulevard, as well as Madeira Way and Gulf Boulevard. Please use caution in these areas.

“Our commitment to the community is that we will have the entire county restored by midnight Friday, with the exception of those whose homes may be damaged that they can’t safely receive power,” and Jeff Baker, Duke Energy Government and Community Relations manager.

The city is hopeful that it will be able to continue with a regular schedule for the rest of the month, including the following:

Sept. 19, Tuesday, 6 p.m. - Second Budget Hearing

Sept. 25, Monday 2 p.m. - Special Magistrate – Variance / Special Exception Hearings

Sept. 26, Tuesday 2 p.m. - Board of Commissioners Workshop

Sept. 26, Tuesday 6 p.m. - Board of Commissioners Regular Meeting

“Madeira Beach was extremely fortunate that we weren’t hit as hard as expected and the storm surge remained minimal. However, my heart goes out for those of you who had damage.” said Mayor Maggi Black.

Agendas and additional meeting details can be found at madei­rabea­chfl.­gov.

Residents still in need of urgent support can call the public works emergency mobile number at 727-543-8154. Please direct all other inquiries to Pinellas County Citizen Information Center at 727-464-4333.
