It has been five days since Hurricane Ivan swept over the Wiregrass. Dothan City Officials have spent that time accessing the storm`s damage. Houston County wasn`t severely hit, but Ivan did leave it`s mark all across the county. Jerry Corbin, Interim City Manager said, "If you thought that Ivan skated past the Wiregrass, think again. Crews for Dothan City are still working more than forty hour weeks. But, just because you see crews out working, doesn`t necessarily mean that they will be heading to your home. What the public should realize in those cases...at their expense. An expensive task for any homeowner, but city officials will still pitch in by helping you pick up precut limbs." City officials have not determined what the final price tag for Ivan will be. They have to take into account overtime and equipment rentals. Those figures are hard to determine since city workers are spread out all over the state right now helping out in other communities.
