Important Information regarding Storm Cleanup

In the wake of Tropical Storm Irma, Forsyth County crews are and will continue working to clear debris that fell within the county right of way. Please use caution when you see these crews working along county roadways. Please do not move debris from private property onto county right of way. The county does not pick up storm debris from private property and county employees are prohibited from working on private property. Remember that if you need to report a tree down blocking a roadway or trees on power lines, please call 911.
