  • Tuesday, Jan 9:           8:00 am - 3:30 pm
  • Wednesday, Jan 10:    8:00 am - 3:30 pm


Depending upon the volume of sandbags requested, or if a Flood Warning is issued as a result of next week's predicted rains, the City may extend hours and/or open Sunday.

City's Sandbag Pickup Station: 401 East Yanonali Street, City Annex yard.

Public Works staff will open the City's Sandbag Station and make sandbags available to residents free of charge. Residents should bring their own gloves and shovels and be prepared to fill the bags they need.
