The Gainesville City Council voted Friday to allocate $50,000 from the general fund contingency budget to support continued cleanup efforts in the wake of this week’s ice storm, which sent trees and limbs crashing onto homes and power lines. Public Works Director David Dockery said all roads in the city had been cleared and were passable Friday afternoon. But the scope of work remaining is “tremendous,” Dockery said, as hundreds of trees must still be chopped up and removed.
