St. Petersburg City Council member Karl Nurse thinks city workers haven't gotten enough credit for their hard work in recovery efforts post-Hurricane Irma

September

City Council member Karl Nurse thinks the exhaustive media coverage of Hurricane Irma and its aftermath has missed something: the hard work of city workers.

Crews have worked 12-hour shifts for days clearing debris and getting the city back into operating shape, Nurse said.

“They deserve an attaboy,” Nurse said. "You can't say thank you enough."

He has a neighbor who is a building inspector, but was called into work on recovery efforts, Nurse said.

“They are working incredibly hard and word hasn’t gotten out,” Nurse said.

Nurse is term-limited and leaves office in January. He has been on City Council since April 2008.
