Clean Up Efforts Continue

Medicine Hat – Here is an update from the City’s Parks and Recreation and Utility departments: 

-        Current total of 20 public tress lost (count does not include private trees)

-        Crescent Heights crews completed sweep for small debris clean-up of roads and parks

-        Crews will continue in all other areas clean-up on June 12 

-        Eight crews in total will be out on eight hour shifts June 12.  

Three arborist crews will focus on major known down trees. Five crews will clean up parks and roads of smaller debris and branches as well as report any hangers or dangers.  

Parks and Recreation will not be utilizing contractors to assist with clean-up efforts as it is manageable within the department. Once clean-up efforts are complete, will request quotes from contractors for transport to Landfill.
 
The City of Medicine Hat is pleased to report that all crew is in safe with no injuries. Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the Parks and Recreation department since Saturday evening, all sport fields are accessible for use. 

The City’s utility line crews are continuing to work to repair damaged infrastructure. A significant amount of work remains, including pole replacements and line repairs. The public is asked to keep back from crews and give them room to work. Many hazards, including high voltage and heavy equipment, pose a danger to those in the work zone.
