PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) – A Florida city hit hard by Hurricane Michael has approved its final payment for debris removal from that 2018 storm.

The Panama City Commission voted Tuesday to pay $2.1 million to Crowder Gulf, the disaster recovery company that handled the city’s storm debris.

The Panama City News Herald reported that about $94.6 million has been spent to remove all of its hurricane debris.

Most of the cost will be reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In all, crews collected 5.7 million cubic yards of debris from the city and removed 18,000 tree stumps.
