The City of Okeechobee is a community which helps one another especially when our friends and neighbors are in need. I would like to give a big thank you from the City of Okeechobee to each of you for doing your part during this disaster. I would also like to especially thank the local businesses that went above and beyond for the residents of the City and County.

Our City and its Citizens are to be commended for the fortitude and willingness to help thy neighbor. Whether it was a business staying open till 3 a.m. to provide plywood, or the individual making sure those less fortunate were housed within their home or sheltered in provided approved shelters.

We would like to formally give recognition to all First Responders within our region, but especially the City Police, City Fire, and City Public Works personnel for their planning, preparation, dedication and efforts of this most recent devastating storm, Hurricane Irma.

Police personnel continued routes through our City's Business District as well as residential properties.

Fire personnel responded to calls as dispatched for all issues and life safety issues during the worst part of the storm.

Public Works personnel cleared roadways and secured traffic flows and signal replacements.
