PARKER, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - The city of Parker held a council meeting Tuesday to discuss debris removal and other hurricane recovery efforts in the city. During the meeting, the city announced they cleared nearly 300,000 yards of debris.

In a previous meeting, the council gave residents 6 months to live in their campers or trailers on their property while they fix their home.

Tuesday, the council decided to give residents the option to extend the time frame.

"It's likely there are gonna be certain situations that require longer that 6 months, so they have a couple of options," said Parker mayor Richard Musgrave. "Code enforcement could determine what the remaining time needs to be, could bring that back to the council for approval."

Mayor Musgrave said residents who want to have two trailers on their property will also have to go to code enforcement.
