Wilton Manors officials have lifted the curfew.

As of 5 p.m. today, they estimate that power has been restored to 3,900 of the city’s 7,880 properties.

The end of the curfew was welcome news to Ahmet Demir, owner of the Sea & Olive Mediterranean restaurant on Wilton Drive. He said he would be open until midnight tonight and that he “was here for people” without power who wanted to get a hot meal and a drink.

For those still unlucky enough to still be without power, the Wilton Manors Library will also be open tomorrow at 9 a.m. Officials have dubbed it a “Cooling Center” and “residents can drop by, charge their phones and get cool. Currently, there is no internet and materials cannot yet be checked out.”

City Hall will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Parks will remain closed. Officials hope to open them again by Monday or later this week.

Regular trash pickup has already resumed.

Recycling will resume next week.

Regular bulk pickup is suspended for September.

Storm debris removal pickup will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 19.
