Patience and fortitude bring GME residents a bit closer to keeping their homes

The cleanup is one big ray of sunshine in the whole mess. Thanks to some help from Boca Grande resident Bryan Troutman and a few of his friends, a state representative was contacted and made aware of the situation. The rodent problem, the smell and the general feeling of depression residents felt while living amongst piles of rubble had been going on for far too long. It began on Wednesday, and residents counted somewhere between 30 and 40 loads that had already been removed. The county will be cleaning in three phases – cleaning up what is already at the curb, cleaning up around the homes and finally, removing the destroyed units. They expect to be finished at a fairly rapid rate, though, possibly in two to three weeks.
