Governor Kate Brown visited the Mountain View Estates mobile home park in Talent, the park was destroyed in the Almeda Fire and is now one of the first locations to near the end of the clean-up process. Local officials with agencies that are working in tandem to clean up fire debris and rebuild homes were at Mountain View Estates to give the Governor an update on where the rebuilding process stands today. “The cleanup efforts started in earnest in mid-January. And we started off kind of slow. We did that on purpose because we wanted to understand the challenges, both operationally and safety,” said Jerry Marmon, ODOT District Manager. According to Marmon, about 1,200 sites have been fully cleaned up. “That represents about 70% of the entire place,” said Marmon. Right now, there are more than 20 debris crews working on clean up with 50-60 dump trucks on site.
