City crews helps Flagler Beach
Ormond Beach Public Works crews assisted the city of Flagler Beach after Hurricane Nicole by helping to relieve flooded areas using stormwater pumps, City Manager Joyce Shanahan wrote in her weekly report on Friday, Nov. 18.
She detailed that she had received a call from the city of Flagler Beach asking for help pumping out a subdivision where homes were threatened by rising waters.
“On very short notice our assistant public works director called in two of the streets crew, Greg Davis and Bobby Dudzin, who picked up the city’s pump and related equipment and were on their way up to Flagler Beach within the hour,” Shanahan wrote. “I appreciate all our Public Works employees for the hard work they do on a daily basis and they truly shine during storm events.”
