ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Crews are working tirelessly at Tift Park, as the 90-day deadline for storm one cleanup approaches. 

Right now, debris picked up between now and March 31st will get 80 percent reimbursement from FEMA. 

The next 30 days after that, debris picked up will get 75 percent FEMA reimbursement. 

After that, FEMA will not pay for the clean-up. 

Friday morning, Mayor Dorothy Hubbard provided an update as to where the city was on storm cleanup. 

"We think that we are on target with getting through the first 90 days, which I believe ends on March 31st," she said. "We'll be able to tell a little bit better, later on, before the week is out, today, or Monday."

This formula is also true for the clean-up after the January 22nd tornadoes.
