Greetings From Edisto Real Estate Company – cleanup after Hurricane Matthew- Marie Bost
Contractors are working on Palmetto Boulevard from 1000 to 500 tomorrow to remove the sand from the road and driveways and place on the beach. DOT will be working on sidewalk clearing. We are building a dune in front of the homes 20 feet wide by 6 feet tall to help protect properties from further surge damage.
We are trying to open these areas as soon as possible so our residents can return home. We will only be working in clearing yards we have received hold harmless paperwork. Once we move from this area, we will not be able to come back but will be moving to blocks 100-500. After we leave an area, the homeowners will need to contract with someone to remove the sand from their property. If you want to have this work done in part by the Town, please call them asap
