Iowa City Asking Volunteers to Help in Flood Protection Cleanup
IOWA CITY (CBS 2/FOX 28) --
After waiting for floodwaters to recede, the City of Iowa City has retrieved the sandbags placed near residential areas and businesses that had been threatened by rising waters last month. The pre-filled bags have been returned to the City's Streets Complex for storage. The sand will be utilized for winter street sanding and other public works projects, but first, the bags must be emptied.
The City is requesting volunteers to assist in these efforts from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday, July 11 through Saturday, July 13. Volunteers are asked to check-in at the Streets Complex at 3800 Napoleon Lane and to wear closed-toe shoes. Water will be provided, but volunteers are asked to provide these items: box cutter or utility knife, sunscreen, and bug spray.
Volunteers must be 14 years or older to participate. Those under 18 must have a parent sign a liability waiver. Contact Carol Sweeting at 319-541-2385 with questions or if you have a large group of volunteers to register.
