Damages to City property

Assessing the damage to City infrastructure following severe tropical weather is a critical aspect of the City's Emergency response planning.  City planners focus a lot of effort on preparing staff for an emergency response event including hurricanes and widespread flooding.  Following a major storm, City crews will assess critical roadways in an attempt to coordinate cleanup activities.
