Galveston City Council, during its workshop today, discussed the status of the city following Hurricane Harvey.

Harvey made landfall along the middle section of the Texas Gulf Coast as a Category 4 storm on the night of August 25. It drenched much of Southeast Texas with a record-breaking 51 inches of rain.

City Manager Brian Maxwell said “everything is going well” with debris pickup, adding the service will continue through the weekend. Listen (10:56)

Council Member Dr. Craig Brown thanked a member of the sanitation crew for their work in his district.

“Nathan has been superb in my district,” said Dr. Brown.

Maxwell said public works employees continued to work even in the worst weather.

“They were out in the rain,” he said. “They never stopped.”

The city manager mentioned that many West End homes still have water in their garages.

The city council also went over the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget and Capital Improvement Plan in addition to possibly amending the International Property Maintenance Code.
