211 ACTIVE -
To get any potential reimbursement from the government for water damages, citizens names need to be on the 211 list.
Residents can call 211, press 1 for local disaster, and an agent will assist in taking their report. If any financial assistance becomes available, your name needs to be on this list. Additionally, people can self-report online using the 211-disaster reporting form here:
If you have sandbags and you want to dispose of them, please take them to the city parking lot behind the radio station. Cut open the bag and place sand in a pile and discard the sandbag in the trash receptacle that has been provided.
Anyone needing help removing the sandbags from their property should call 211 and give that information. We will work with volunteers to help get those sandbags removed.
