Crowley, LA – Today, Mayor Tim Monceaux issued the following notice:

I hope as this is released all our citizens are safe and suffered minimal damage. With that being said, the City of Crowley has contracted with a debris removal company to assist our citizens in picking up construction debris (building materials, drywall, lumber, carpet, furniture, mattresses, plumbing) vegetative debris (tree branches, leaves and logs), and “White Goods” (refrigerators, washer and dryers, freezers, air conditioners, stoves, water heaters and dishwashers). It is very important that these items are separated in piles by the three types, construction, vegetative and white goods. If the items are combined in pile it will NOT be picked up. Please visit https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2017-09/documents/debris-separation-epa.pdf We are asking all citizens to place debris on the city right of way by Monday August 31, 2020. The trucks will begin removing debris by area and will be in the City of Crowley until Thursday September 3, 2020. Please try to have all debris to the right of way and ready for pick up on Monday morning. These contractors legally cannot pick up any debris on private property. Be mindful of any downed powerlines and placing debris on corners that could possibly block view of traffic. Please stay safe and continue to pray for our City.
