January 12th Tornado Cleanup Begins Final Phases

Tornado cleanup efforts throughout Elmore County have been progressing since last month’s tornado event on January 12th. The County Commission activated a debris removal contractor to assist with the cleanup due to the county being repetitively hit with successive tornados since late November. The contractor has focused on the heavily impacted areas in the Lightwood and Titus communities. The contractor is required to make two passes through each area to ensure all eligible debris on the county right-of-way is removed.

As of Sunday, February 19th, the contractor has completed their first pass in the Lightwood community. The contractor will now focus their efforts in the Titus area to complete their first pass there. The contractor will return to the Lightwood community on or after Monday, February 27th to complete the final pass.

Please contact the Elmore County Public Works Department at roads@elmoreco.org or at 334-567-1162 during normal business hours with any storm debris questions.
