On May 14, 2014, the County approved the Master Agreement with AshBritt, Inc., of Deerfield Beach, FL to provide Debris Management Services and Emergency Response Management and Recovery Services. The Master Agreement was established for the purpose of retaining a Contractor to provide debris management services and emergency response, management, and recovery services in the manner prescribed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).

On October 10, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners approved Work Assignment 1 activities such as field operations, debris pickup, debris hauling, debris staging and reduction demolitions and final disposal of debris resulting from Hurricane Irma, as well as other emergency response activities as directed by the County to eliminate immediate threats to the public's health and safety, and threats of significant damage to public or private property.
