MESSAGE FROM THE CITY MANAGER
We are so fortunate to have missed the wrath of Hurricane Dorian. The videos and pictures from the Bahamas are truly heartbreaking. I’ve lived in and worked for communities that have endured direct hits from hurricanes (including Hurricane Andrew in 1992) but thankfully have never experienced the level of devastation wrought upon the Abaco Islands and the Bahamas. In the ensuing weeks we will be running an aid campaign. More information will be forthcoming as we flush out the details so please keep an eye out for additional posts.
It has been a very busy summer so far and we had to switch up gears to prepare for Hurricane Dorian. Every year at the beginning of summer City staff runs a hurricane drill to ensure the appropriate level readiness for the season. An additional dry run helped us further refine emergency operations in Dunedin. We are now back to normal operations which means doing our best every day to maintain an excellent standard of services across the board.
Jennifer K. Bramley, City Manager
