Greetings Neighborhood Leaders-
This storm has been most cruel to our neighborhoods! City and private crews are out working hard to clear roads, sidewalks and alleyways, but for many people, the damage done was on their private property and is therefore not eligible for this service.
If you know of any residents who are in need of general assistance with clearing brush and debris and getting it to the curb to be removed by City crews, please let them know that the Volunteer Network is available to assist with alerting volunteers to these needs. They can register their assistance request online at
IN ADDITION....Please let us know if you would like us to assist you with volunteer recruitment or referral for the cleanup of storm damage and debris in your neighborhood. If you have a person - you or another point person - who would be willing to receive information about available volunteers and could direct them to where they are needed, please contact us at 349-3433 or
We are receiving calls now from volunteers who are interested in helping where they are needed most and would be happy to pass those names along to you!
