Hurricane Michael Post-Event Alert:
Urgent Information From Florida Division of Emergency Management - State Funding Hurricane Michael Debris Removal in Fiscally-Constrained Counties



FMIT ALERT: Monday, Oct. 15, 2018


The following information was released by the Florida Division of Emergency Management (View Document):

"To reduce the administrative, operational and financial burdens on the counties most impacted by the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Michael, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will assist fiscally-constrained counties with all remaining debris removal and emergency road clearance.

In Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Calhoun, Gulf, Gadsden, Liberty, Franklin and Wakulla counties, FDOT is offering, following the county’s voluntary request, to take on the responsibility for each county’s existing pre-storm emergency debris removal contract at the existing approved contract rate

Once a county’s request for emergency debris removal and road clearance is received, FDOT will conduct and fund any remaining debris removal and emergency road clearance. FDOT will not seek to procure a new emergency debris removal contract in any county unless that county does not have a pre-storm emergency debris removal contract already secured.

If a county does not have any pre-storm contracts, then FDOT will procure debris services at a rate no greater than the average of the prevailing, pre-disaster rates for the region. There would be no local cost share for a requesting county which means that requesting counties will have no cost to bear for this service.

Counties who wish to request this assistance should submit a mission request to the State Emergency Response Team via the WebEOC platform by Clicking Here."

About Us


The Florida League of Cities, administrator of the Florida Municipal Insurance Trust, is the state association for cities, towns and villages of Florida.

The League established its first insurance program in 1977 to provide workers’ compensation coverage and services to governmental entities. Early success of that program led to the establishment of Trusts for the liability, property and health lines of coverage. This firmly established the League as the leader of these services in Florida. 

In 1987, the League opened its Public Risk Services office to administer the programs in-house. Subsequently, the insurance programs were consolidated under the name “Florida Municipal Insurance Trust” (FMIT). 

The FMIT, governed by elected officials, is a non-assessable, nonprofit, tax-exempt risk-sharing pool. It provides insurance services for approximately 600 public entities in Florida, of which 250-plus are municipalities. Learn More
