Saturday, the city of Pasadena hosted the first in a series of community meetings on the disaster and recovery efforts.

Following the windstorm, debris littered the streets and many families were stuck for days without electricity.

Homeowners at the meeting commended the city for the cleanup, but they said they're fed up with a large debris pile dumped near their homes.

"I feel like as a citizen, as a homeowner for 22 years on Outpost Lane, that the city has let Outpost Lane down," said one resident who attended the meeting.

Neighbors say the debris, which is on county property, has been turned into a huge mulch pile. They say it is emitting a foul odor and that the dust is making them sick.
