INFORMATION ON FEMA OPERATIONS

This information is being provided to alert residents of the Town of Perdido Beach that the FEMA pickup of Hurricane Sally debris is NOT FREE!  The FEMA contractor attended the Council meeting last night to provide an update on the current status.  What we learned is that, while FEMA will reimburse the majority of these costs and a portion will be reimbursed by the State of Alabama, the Town of Perdido Beach is liable for a percentage of the total costs of debris removal caused by Hurricane Sally.  Our liability for this could reach upwards of $80,000.

Some are taking advantage of what they perceive to be free pickup; however, it could possibly add to the cost paid by the Town.  Any debris that clearly is not a result of damage incurred by Hurricane Sally WILL NOT be picked up.  Instead, individuals should contact Baldwin County for special pickup. 

Check here for information – https://baldwincountyal.gov/departments/solid-waste/garbage-collections.

Because there is a delay while FEMA is processing the paperwork, the Town must set up a line of credit to pay the FEMA contractor.  Reimbursement from FEMA could take up to eight months to happen!  

This will help the FEMA contractor ensure that all loads will be picked up, logged in and paid for.  When the loads are delivered to the CR 95 location, if there is anything in the load that is not covered, they will not get paid for it – that then load will be added to our cost!

Please help minimize the impact to our Town’s budget!!

PLEASE follow the guidelines for debris to be separated in the picture below


DEBRIS SEPARATION GUIDELINES

Picking up the pieces: Debris separation instructions

Like many small rural communities, this waterfront community has seen its share of changes. Family gardens have been replaced by supermarket chains, kerosene lanterns have been replaced by electric lights. Gone are the days of the ox drawn plows and the Model A automobiles.  The community has always enjoyed a close knit spirit, where neighbors have looked out for and helped each other. Although we have moved into the era of high speed technology, this little Town still embraces that same community spirit that it did in days gone by.  In early 2008 that harmonious spirit brought the community together for a common cause, to preserve our unhampered lifestyle.  ..

It was the consensus of the majority that it would be in the community’s best interest to incorporate, thus allowing the Town to make its own decisions concerning its future growth and development.
On April 21st., 2009, the residents voted in a referendum of incorporation, which passed by approximately two-thirds vote in favor of incorporation.
At the time of incorporation this tiny close knit community had realized a history of one hundred and eight years.  Its current population consists of 558 permanent residents, as well as a large number of home owners and property owners who live elsewhere and claim Perdido Beach as their home away from home.
It has been said,“Perdido Beach is not just a place-but a state of mind”..
