DUBLIN (April 30, 2015) — Residents of Dublin continue working alongside city crews, cleaning up after the storm system that swept through the city over the weekend. Now they’ve got some help.
According to Nancy Wooldridge, city administrator, the American Red Cross and others are on site to assist in the clean up.
“They’re here to assist our low-income families and the elderly get their homes back in order after the storm,” she said. “The Red Cross is working with Home Depot of Brownwood to provide tarps and boards and more. So, we (City Hall) are doing everything we can to help put them in touch with those that need help the most.”
Wooldridge said the Red Cross aid workers would be out and about in the city on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. She reminded residents that all official workers will be in a vehicle with a red cross on the door and will have a name tag and official permit from the city. Workers from the Red Cross will also be set up in the council room in Dublin City Hall from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. each of those days.
“We want to make sure everyone who needs help gets it,” Wooldridge said. “So, if you need help and can call city hall (254-445-3331) and leave your name, a phone number and your address, we will get someone out to you as soon as we can.”
The City of Dublin has also opened the city facility at the corner of Harris and Norton Streets for those wishing to drop off limbs, bags of leaves and other storm debris. Wooldridge said there would be a city crew on hand to assist with the unloading of vehicles from 3-5 p.m. each day. However, this is only for those residents within the city limits. Just bring a water bill and proof of id when you come to the city drop-off point, she said.
