Glendora City Manager Estimates $300,000 in Wind Damages

City Council to ratify City Manager Chris Jeffer’s declaration of state of emergency.

City Manager Chris Jeffers estimated the total cost of city damages from last week’s wind storm to be about $300,000.

Jeffers said the number is continually evolving, but said the bulk of the city’s costs were staff response hours and cleanup for fallen trees and branches.

He said up to $60,000 alone was spent on tree and branch removal and cleanup.

When last week’s wind storm leveled trees and power lines and knocked out power for a quarter of the city, Jeffers declared a state of emergency.

He called his action a allowing the city to be reimbursed by state or federal agencies for some of the damages.

Jeffers said state government is waiting for official tallies from counties and cities before a decision can be made on damage reimbursements.

City Council will meet tomorrow, Thursday at 9 a.m. in the to ratify Jeffers’ state of emergency declaration.
