Updated storm-related information

Post Date:05/20/2019

 

The following is a list of resources that could prove helpful in recovery efforts related to the May 18 storm:

• Storm debris disposal - City Operations, Shane Kelton, 325-657-4206
• Insurance claims tips - contact any local insurance agent
• Selecting contractors - Homebuilders Association, 325-949-0140
• Building permits - City Development Services, Jon James, 325-653-4755
• Legal issues - Legal Aid, 855-548-8457 or 325-653-6982
• Disaster Relief Fund - San Angelo Area Foundation, Janet Karcher, 325-947-7071
• Small business/home loans - Small Business Development Center, Alejandro Castanon, 325-942-2098
• Housing repairs - City Community & Housing Support, 325-655-0824, and Galilee CDC, 325-655-6700 

Two sites remain will remain open 24/7 through June 2 for citizens to drop off brush and construction debris: 

  1. The Lake Operations facility at 2301 Fisherman's Road (corner of Fisherman's and Knickerbocker roads).
  2. In the parking lot at Foster Communications Coliseum, 50 E. 43rd St.

San Angelo Stadium is NOT a designated drop-off site.

Drop-off areas are marked with orange traffic barrels. Brush and construction debris, which will be disposed of differently, must be put in separate piles at the drop-off sites. Spoiled food should be placed in tan garbage bins rather than left on front curbs or taken to drop-off sites.

Republic Services, the City's trash collection contractor,  is providing two local numbers for customers to request a roll-off container for storm debris: 325-234-0127 and 325-267-9930.

If a homeowner cannot transport limbs and damaged shrubbery, that vegetation should be placed on the front curb immediately. Please do not push or leave debris in the street. City crews will be collecting limbs left on curbs through May 31.

Vegetation damaged by the storm will be chipped. The resulting mulch will be available at no cost at the Lake Ops facility, 2301 Fisherman's Road, and at the landfill, 3002 Old Ballinger Highway. 

The San Angelo Area Foundation has established a San Angelo Disaster Relief Fund to accept monetary donations to assist storm victims. The foundation will cover all credit card fees, ensuring 100 percent of donations are used to help victims. Contributions may be made at saafound.org.

The City Council has approved the following to assist storm victims: 

  • Waiving late fees on water bills for 30 days for any charges occurring after May 18 for customers who live north of 20th Street between Main and Poe streets. Other requests will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
  • Waiving the fee for 30 days to redeem a stray animal at the Animal Shelter and extending the hold period for strays to June 4.
  • An emergency contract with Compact Conservation and Construction to chip and manage brush debris.
  • The expenditure of up to $250,000 from the fund balance of the Solid Waste Fund for fees and services related to storm recovery.
  • Waiving permit fees for six months for repairs to storm-damaged structures. Building permits will be required for work done, including building repairs and mechanical, electrical or plumbing work, but no fees will be charged for those permits. 

Any construction-related work in the city, unless done directly by the homeowner, must be performed by a contractor licensed with the Building Permits and Inspections Division. Licensing ensures contractors meet state and local standards for their trade and helps provide consumer protections. For more information or to learn if a contractor is licensed with the City, call Permits and Inspections at 325-657-4210.

The City expresses its thanks to those who volunteered their time, talents and treasures to help neighbors in their time of need.

“While this is a time of great sadness for the Bradford area, it is gratifying to see San Angeloans, including our corporate citizens, rally to help their neighbors in need,” Mayor Brenda Gunter said. “San Angelo is not only a great city; it is a strong community. Thank you to all who are contributing in whatever ways they can to help their fellow citizens.”
