Winter Storm Preparedness

Posted on December 6, 2018


With the beginning of the winter storm season, we strongly encourage you to take time to prepare for upcoming storms.

Sand for sandbags delivered to Depot Park
Sand to fill sandbags is currently available to residents at Depot Park.

If your property has a history of flooding, please don’t wait for a storm to prepare sandbags. Sandbags can be prepared and kept on hand throughout the winter. Free sandbags are now available to City residents at City Hall during normal business hours, limit 10 bags per resident while supplies last. Additional bags are available for purchase at  Friedman’s Home Improvement Center (1360 Broadway).

Free sand is also available to City residents in the parking lot at Depot Park (270 1st ST W). The sandbag filling station at Depot Park is self-serve; please bring your own shovel.  Read our Sandbag Instructions to learn how to properly fill, stack, and construct sandbags.
