City of Topeka concludes storm debris clean-up operation

Last Friday, City of Topeka crews successfully completed their storm debris clean-up operation from the July 14 storm that caused city-wide damage.

Crews spent four consecutive weeks cleaning up debris from city residents’ curbs free of charge. The city has an estimated 1,600 lane miles of roadway, all of which were covered in the operation. During the operation, customer service staff from the city’s call center helped generate more than 500 service requests related to storm debris.

The city would like to thank residents for the gratitude and patience they showed over the last month. City leaders are exceptionally proud of the crews and staff who worked tirelessly to make these efforts possible.
