 ​​​Hurricane Irma came and left and the Town of Pierson is glad to see that everyone prevailed the storm.  Thank you community for staying safe, being patient and showing our town's wonderful kindness in clearing immediate debris and helping others.

Our Public Works Department has begun clearing and opening roads up.  Residents who can safely do so are asked to place storm-related debris on the public right-of-way. The public right-of-way is the area of residential property that extends from the street to the sidewalk, ditch, utility pole or easement. Do not place hurricane debris in the road. This obstructs traffic, hinders cleanup and power restoration efforts, and makes it difficult for emergency vehicles to pass. Please be aware that the dumpster is not available at this time. We will advise when it will be accessible. 

​WCA Waste pickup will be one day after your normal pickup this week.
