Flikeid says several more days of cleanup in Aurelia will be needed. Work is continuing today (Fri), and a decision on whether work will be done during the weekend is expected to be made later today. Keep updated on the Aurelia Police Department's Facebook page.
Volunteers are asked to check in at the Aurelia City Hall so they can track hours, equipment, and supplies. During cleanup, residents and volunteers are asked to keep trees and construction debris separate. Dumpsters are in place for construction debris only.
Regular garbage service for Aurelia took place today (Fri) for the west side of town, and will be done this coming Monday for the east side of town. Garbage service will return to its normal schedule this coming Thursday, December 23rd.
Trees and branches should be placed along the curb, and they should be cut into manageable six-foot sections if possible. If someone is hauling trees and branches on their own, they should be taken to the yard waste site and use the West 3rd Street entrance.
The Aurelia Community Center is being made available for residents and volunteers for food, water, and rest.
Those that are not involved in cleanup efforts are asked to avoid the Aurelia area to allow residents and volunteers space to work, and to keep them safe from unnecessary traffic.
