Downed trees in Clearwater Beach are among the damage being reported after Hurricane Irma blew through Monday morning. A wind gust of 84 mph was reported, one of the highest in the county.
CLEARWATER -- The city of Clearwater is working to get back on its feet following Hurricane Irma’s landfall on Marco Island on Sept. 10.

All city offices reopened today (Sept. 12), although some facilities remained closed. Clearwater Main Library and North Greenwood library branches are open and operating at normal capacity. Countryside Library is open but does not currently have internet or phone service. The East and Beach branches remain closed today and it is unknown when they will reopen.

The Long Center is the only city recreation center open to the public today. All other remain closed until further notice.

Lifeguards returned to the beach today but Pier 60 remains closed as repairs are underway to the property.

Residents are urged to refrain from placing storm debris in the roadway. Instead, debris should be stacked along the curb away from storm sewers. Solid Waste will pick up debris on residents’ normal trash and recycling day. Those normally scheduled for a Monday pick up can expect to have their trash picked up on Tuesday. Those scheduled for a Tuesday pick up should plan to have their trash and recycling out for pick up on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday pick-up services will be on their regular schedule.

If you see a tree down, call 727-562-4800 or email Michele.stewart@myclearwater.com.

Officials say the tap water is safe to drink, but the city’s water plants are currently out of service. The city is currently using water supplies from the county. Reclaimed water service is not in operation.

Residents are urged to minimize water usage in an effort to lessen stress on the sewer system. A number of the city’s lift stations are not operational due to power outages.
