Preparations are underway in anticipation of heavy rainfall that Tropical Depression Fred could send our way. The Public Works Department has set up a self-serve sandbag station available starting Friday, August 13th at W.G. Roe Park, 2269 7th Street SW. The self-serve station is on the park’s southern side to lessen the impacts to parking and boat launches as much as possible. There is a limit of 10 bags per household. Residents are encouraged to bring their own shovels to fill the bags.
