[ARCHIVED] Storm of July 25th, 2021

Storm of July 25 2021 City Actions

The City of Liberal will only be responsible for clearing tree limbs and debris on City property only.

Tree limb and debris removal from private property is the responsibility of the property owner the same as keeping the lawn mowed and the property properly maintained.

Senior citizens and the disabled that do not have the means to remove limbs and debris may contact Erika Villa at 620-626-2252 to see if they qualify for City assistance.

Prior Commissions were able to aid all citizens because Liberal was part of a qualified FEMA disaster area and the expenses were re-reimbursed by FEMA.  At this present time this storm has not been qualified as a FEMA disaster area.  In the event Liberal meets the FEMA qualifications we will react accordingly.

Here is an alternative you might consider …

The City of Liberal continues to maintain public property and has been removing limbs from the parks that were damaged in the recent storm.

Tree limb removal on private property, however, continues to be the responsibility of the property owner the same as it is for regular lawn maintenance and mowing.

Senior citizens and the disabled who do not have the means to remove limbs may contact Erika Villa at 620-626-2522 to see if they qualify for specific assistance programs for these groups.

City staff was able to assist with limb removal in the past, but only when the storm qualified for FEMA disaster relief. If such a declaration is made, or if Liberal qualifies for disaster relief, the issue may be reconsidered at that time.

The City of Liberal remains committed to keeping the streets, parks and drainage areas clear and operational so residents can continue to safely operate in public spaces.
