BEST GONNA DO IT ALL BECAUSE HE’S THAT KINDA GUY: Troy Palmer, Treasure Island

BEST GONNA DO IT ALL BECAUSE HE’S THAT KINDA GUY

Crew Chief Troy Palmer oversaw the move of every city document, electronics and vital equipment before the storm — no small task when you think about every piece of paper even a small city generates. After the storm passed, he was one of the first city workers to report for duty to set up “First Push” response — which meant clearing the roads of debris so first responders could help people. At press time, the city manager tells us he’s still full steam ahead to do whatever he can to help get life back to normal for the city, its residents and its businesses. —Cathy Salustri
