The City of Monroe’s Public Works Department sandbagging operations in preparation for expected heavy rainfall in the next few days. Those operations are at the following locations:
Saul Adler Rec. Center – 3900 Westminster Avenue
Marbles Rec. Center – 2950 Renwick St
Emily P. Rec. Center – 3504 Jackson Street
Benoit Rec. Center - 1700 Oaklawn Dr, Monroe, LA
Note: The Public Works Department will provide shovels, sand, and bags for residents to fill their own bags. Residents will be allowed to fill up to 25 bags. Public Works Department employees will be on hand between the hours of 8 am to 5 pm to assist in these operations. However, the public will have 24/7 access to the sand, bags, and shovels.
Predictions call for as much as 5 inches of rain in the next few days; so, residents are asked to clear ditches of debris such as leaves, limbs and branches. This will improve drainage and reduce the chances of flash-flooding.
