TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC)-
Eight months after the April 27th tornado, you can still find plenty of storm debris in the Lake Forest subdivision's lake. Nina Perkins says neighbors have pitched in.
"One couple went out in a boat and got some garbage carts and that kind of stuff. But we don't have the equipment you need to clean something this big," Perkins said.
Perkins is concerned why the city hasn't done more as time passed since the storm. Now the city of Tuscaloosa is pitching in too. Last night, Tuscaloosa city councilors agreed to hire McGiffert and Associates to plan the best way to clean the lake. The city will pay the company $46,000.
Hansel Stewart, a project manager with the company, tells Fox6 News the work will include surveying land to find the best way to get heavy equipment to the lake to remove debris and not cause further damage to property surrounding the lake.
