Debris Pickup Not Likely to Be Complete By Derby

Debris pickup from January’s ice storm will not likely be complete this week.

The city has about 200 public and private workers collecting debris. Officials planned to have all of the debris cleared by Derby, but mayor’s spokesperson Kerri Richardson says that’s unlikely.

“We’re concerned about some of the rain maybe hindering that later this week. We hope that won’t slow us up too much. It’s going to be hard to put an exact date on it but we’re going to make a really good run at getting everything done this weekend,” she says.

Richardson says the job is about 84% complete. That’s not counting private roads, which will be cleared once the rest of the debris is collected.
