Local Government Agencies Working Together On Century Tornado Cleanup

February 24, 2016

The ECUA grappler truck is on the job during the tornado cleanup on Jefferson Street in Century. It’s being operated by an Escambia County employee, with the assistance of a Town of Century Gas Department employee.

“It’s true intergovernmental cooperation,” said Larry Walker, ECUA District 5 board member.

    Re comment by Bob C.,
    To have this truck helping out in Century required involvement by Century employee Debbie Nichols and Mayor McCall; ECUA District 5 member Larry Walker and executive director Steve Sorrell; Escambia County administrator Jack Brown, Solid Waste Dept director Pat Johnson, and the County employee who operated the truck in Century (whose name I did not get), and Century employee Joe Brown from the Town Gas Dept., who served as the ground man as the grappler truck was operating.
    This effort did not involve lawyers, to be sure, but it did involve the cooperative efforts of “politicians” and government employees. The presence of that truck in Century is an example of local government at its cooperative best.

    Get the politicians and lawyers out of the way and let the county crews and citizens do what they know is needed and you’ll see some real progress.
