Post heavy rain event clean-up

Palm Tree Removal Storms

The heavy rain event the evening of January 26th kept the Streets Division staff busy.  A six-man crew patrolled around the City throughout the night keeping watch for any issues. Fortunately, there were no major issues in the overnight hours but once daylight came, some issues came to light. Here you will see Streets Maintenance worker Arturo Tinoco operating the backhoe removing a large, waterlogged palm tree that had lodged underneath the bridge on Lindaro St. near Albert Park. It was so saturated with water that the backhoe could barely lift it over the wall and into the dump truck. Streets staff Mike Castaneda, Trevor Thomas along with Parks Division staff member Daniel Walzer and Garage staff member Jay Arieta assisted with the removal of this palm tree.
