Mayor Inspects Post-typhoon Cleanup Work

On July 23, Mayor Hau Lung-bin visited the city’s cleanup crew as they conducted roadside cleanup at Dunhua South Road in the aftermath of Typhoon Matmo.

The mayor remarked that the typhoon only caused slight damage to Taipei City, with the main casualty being roadside trees uprooted by the strong winds. With over 300 downed trees requiring removal, the mayor requested the departments of environmental protection and public works to complete the cleanup on the same day. To help residents remove debris and trash, the mayor also ordered the city’s garbage collection service to resume in the evening of July 23. After observing the cleaning crew carrying out their tasks, the mayor commented that that he is very touched to see the staff members starting to conduct cleanup in the rain as early as six o’clock in the morning.Hau noted that the city government began a thorough cleanup of sewers and drains before the start of the typhoon season, thereby minimizing the possibility of flooding. He added that he will be standing by at the Disaster Prevention Center to ensure timely response in case of emergencies.
