Town requests citizen assistance ahead of storm event

Posted October 23, 2021 at 10:40 am by

Town cit­i­zens are asked to help keep street gut­ters and storm drains clear of fall leaves and debris before the heavy winds and rain­fall pre­dict­ed over the com­ing week.  Clogged street gut­ters can result in storm water over­flow and poten­tial flooding.

“Our streets crew works extreme­ly hard to keep the streets clean and clear, but it’s chal­leng­ing with the vol­ume of leaves that drop this time of year—especially dur­ing a storm,” said Town Admin­is­tra­tor Dun­can Wil­son.  “We would appre­ci­ate if peo­ple could take a few min­utes to help them­selves and their neigh­bors by clear­ing debris that could block street drains.”

Cit­i­zens in need of assis­tance with clear­ing poten­tial storm drain block­age should con­tact Town Hall at 360–378-2810.
