CROWN POINT | Crown Point’s director of Public Works Jay Olson said the city’s massive storm damage from 100 mph winds will take two to three weeks to complete.

“We have three chippers running 12-hour days including Saturdays,” Olson said. “We are going street by street starting with the hardest hit areas between Joliet and North Streets.”

Olson asked for residents’ patience during the clean-up and stressed it is not necessary to call the public works department to get branches picked up.

Olson said if homeowners’ pay someone to cut down trees, the contractor is responsible for hauling them away. He said it is the homeowners’ responsibility to cut up and move branches which are not from trees on the city easements.

Olson said branches should be placed in the easement all facing the same direction with logs placed in a separate pile. Olson said cleanup is complete in the center section of the city.
