Questions and concerns are raised during townhall meeting


People in that neighborhood had some serious questions and concerns.
    Everything from garbage pick-up to others looting.

Those are issues addressed at a neighborhood meeting today.
   
Days after the storm has come and gone, the Bristol Park Community is still throwing out debris, and now that frustration has really set in, residents are voicing their concerns.

"Do not come out here and take anything from me!  Because I already have nothing.  And what about finding help for somebody who's paraplegic."

About a hundred residents at the community townhall desperately sought answers to the many problems they're facing.
An ECUA representative answered questions about trash pick-up.

Insurance and Fema questions also weighed heavy on the minds of concerned residents in the wake of the flooding.
But it was questions about security that fired up people the most.

David Rappa - Bristol Park resident, "We were ten minutes at the most, and they took a tv right off the porch."

An Escambia County Deputy answered questions about looting.
He says as long as debris sits along the curb, it's considered abandoned property, but that wasn't enough to appease residents.

Holly Goforth - Bristol Park resident, "Events happen with people coming and taking our stuff, and that impedes traffic, humanitarian efforts and people need to get in and get the work done.  We have insurance adjustors that are trying to make their way in here, that cannot be done."

A Facebook page is being created to serve as a resource for residents in Bristol Park during this difficult time.
