In case you haven’t noticed, the wet weather is back! That’s why our public works department has re-established a free sandbag filling station in the parking lot of the Independence Cinema. These sandbags can help absorb water and prevent flooding near you and your home. For extra protection, consider cleaning the leaves beside your nearest storm drain; this will help keep our city clean and prevent excessive flooding to neighboring homes and businesses. Lastly, please refrain from placing trash inside the sandbag bin.

The city of Independence appreciates you doing your part to keep our community safe and livable for everyone.
