Hall County officials are reminding the public that debris resulting from last month’s winter weather events will not be removed by County crews if it fell onto private property. Crews will only remove debris that fell directly onto the right of way or was cut by utility crews and left on the right of way. Any debris that appears to have been moved from another location onto the right of way will not be removed by County crews.
So far, crews have cleared debris from approximately 1,750 miles of roadway following the recent winter weather events that left downed trees and limbs across the County.
Hall County Public Works Director Ken Rearden said nearly every roadway in the County was affected.
“Most of the 2,556 roads in unincorporated Hall County were impacted, resulting in approximately 2,200 miles to clear,” he said.
Rearden said crews will continue to work 10-hour days, six days a week through the weekend to clear debris. The cleanup is then expected to be scaled back to 10-hour days, five days a week. Inmate labor and work release crews will continue to be utilized until the cleanup is complete.
Anyone with any questions related to storm-related clean-up is asked to contact Hall County Public Works at 770-531-6824.
