Q: What is the status of cleaning up commercial properties? When will that finish?

A:  Commercial properties that chose the state program will have their structural debris cleared by the end of this month.  Many commercial properties chose the alternative program and hired their own contractors. They are following their work plans and are subject to the availability of the contractor they hired.  Some commercial properties faced longer cleanup timelines due to insurance requirements and hazard testing and mitigation.  

Also, it is important to note that there are several property owners that have opted to go with a private contractor for debris removal that has NOT yet submitted a work plan. If your contractor has not yet submitted a work plan, your property is non-compliant and subject to a warranted abatement. If your property is in the Town of Paradise, and you would like to confirm your work plan has been submitted by your contractor, please call Rachel at (530) 872-6291 x122.
