Help needed for sandbags or in the field

Mayor Tom Henry called for volunteers this afternoon to help with flood control efforts.

“The City needs help to replenish our sandbag supply and extra help in the field,” Henry said. “Fort Wayne has such a wonderful volunteer spirit and I know our residents will come through.”

Those interested in filling sandbags should report to the City Street Department, 1701 S. Lafayette St., as soon as possible.

Volunteers interested in helping in the field should report the Regional Public Safety Academy at Southtown Centre, behind Menard'€™s and Wal-Mart. Everyone in the field should dress in layers and bring wet-weather gear.

Residents with concerns relating to the recent flooding should call 311 for assistance.
