Debby damage being discussed by City Commission

Safety Harbor, Florida-- The City of Safety Harbor is working together to reflect upon the damage caused by Tropical Storm Debby, and how to react now and in the case of future disasters.

Some of the most severe damage in Safety Harbor as a result of Tropical Storm Debby was confined to a section of Bishop Creek from its intersection with Harbor Woods Drive to North City Park.

"[This] can serve as typical of the damages done along major watercourses city-wide," according to the City Commission agenda item discussing Debby's damage, scheduled to be discussed on Monday evening.

About a foot of rain pounded the area during the storm, and contributed to the damage along Bishop Creek, as well as widespread road flooding. That's why the City Commission will be hearing from the City Emergency Management Coordinator and the Fire Chief about what options are available for state and federal help.

The Public Works Director is scheduled to address specifically the damage that occurred along Bishop Creek, and the City Engineer will talk about what caused the damage and what can be done physically for the city's infrastructure to fix that damage, as well as at other locations in Safety Harbor.
