:CLEAN UP:
Clayton City Council declared a state of emergency on Wednesday morning in an emergency City Council meeting. This declaration allows emergency resources to be used for the city-wide cleanup effort as well as allows the city to apply for reimbursement for specific cleanup efforts through FEMA and other state and federal agencies.

Help Us, Help You.  In order to assist the Service Department move quickly and remove as much storm debris as possible, Clayton is requesting volunteers and the community to please place all brush untangled, with diameters 6” or less at the curb, trunk side toward the street and all branches facing the same direction.  Brush piles tangled and facing different directions slows the cleanup process.

This brush cleanup service is for residents who directly experienced damaged from the tornadoes. Streets that crews will pick-up limbs on are the entire Summersweet plat, Janice, Afton, Rangeview, Freeport, Satellite, Oren, Crestview Estates, and Westbrook.  Crews have removed 80 loads of brush so far.

Clayton will not remove material commercial companies have cut. This effort will take several weeks, and staff will make several rounds in the neighborhoods impacted by the tornadoes. At this time there is no set pick-up schedule.
