PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Panama City's City Manager started holding weekly public meetings to encourage community involvement in the rebuilding process after Hurricane Michael.
One of this week's topics was the status of the stormwater treatment system and plans for its renovation and recovery. The category four storm took a heavy toll on the system and the recovery process is taking time to address all the issues.
Attendees had a chance to ask questions about the areas in which they lived and how stormwater will be addressed. The sequence of reconstruction will be key to the successful efforts of the city.
Panama City Manager Mark McQueen added, "As we begin to rebuild Panama City and part of that is to redo our streets, is to have all of this key and vital infrastructure in mind so that we can plan for our future."
