City to Not Hold Special Vegetative Pickup
The City announced today that pending a determination by the federal government of a disaster declaration for Brunswick County that a city-wide vegetative debris pickup, like that for Hurricane Florence is not planned.
“The debris pickup after Florence cost nearly $ 1.3 million dollars and even a smaller pickup would be close to $ 100,000 based on previous “special pickups” the City had performed in the past”, stated City Manager Jeff Repp. “Unless this becomes a declared event could the Board consider a special pickup based on debris observed at this point.”
The City code provides for “open burning” per Chapter 12, Section 3 of the Code of Ordinances (https://library.municode.com/nc/boiling_spring_lakes/codes/code_of_ordinances?nodeId=PTIICOOR_CH12SOWA_S12-3BUBU).
The City will be removing trees that have fallen into the public right of way along roads in the City.
