As the city of Naples’ holiday festivities begin Monday with the lighting of the Christmas tree on Third Street, city officials are changing their thinking in the wake of Hurricane Ian. City Manager Jay Budheshwar addressed the City Council on Wednesday with information on trash pickup and other information about Ian’s recovery.
“We are on our way back to normalcy, that’s what we call it at the staff level,” Budheshwar said. “This is a transition period as we move out of disaster recovery. Recovery will take years, let me be clear, there are things that will take years. Restoring structures and fixing code related issues and so on and so forth.”
According to Budheshwar, the garbage collection in the city is almost 90% complete. To date, approximately 50% more trash has been collected than after Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
